Mr. Speaker, we cannot look at the costs of the system without looking at the benefits.
I will tell the hon. member some of the benefits. Over 7,701 potentially dangerous gun sales were sent for further investigation, 921 licences were refused and 1,182 licences were revoked. The new registry system has revoked over 20 times more licences than the total over the last five years.
Those are the benefits. This system is working.
