Mr. Speaker, many provincial and territorial justice ministers have come out in support of scrapping the wasteful and ineffective long gun registry. Let us listen to what some of them had to say in their own words.
The Alberta justice minister supports the “repeal of a registry that unfairly targets law-abiding hunters, farmers and sports shooters”.
The Manitoba justice minister wrote that his government has “consistently and repeatedly opposed the registry”.
The Saskatchewan justice minister wrote that Saskatchewan has “consistently opposed the long gun registry, seeing it as a massive waste of taxpayers' money that has yet to solve a single crime”.
The Yukon justice minister wrote that “Yukon's position is that the registry legislation does not deliver positive results”.
On this side of the House, we will continue to oppose the wasteful long gun registry.
