Mr. Speaker, Quebeckers know that the gun registry saves lives. Community organizations and police forces want to keep it.
Yesterday, the Quebec government formally reiterated its commitment to introducing a bill to create a Quebec registry. All it needs is the data that the federal government is obstinately refusing to hand over.
Out of stubbornness, the Conservatives would rather wage an ideological and costly legal crusade than co-operate with a government that understands the importance of gun control.
What will convince the minister to put an end to this legal battle and simply hand over the data to the Government of Quebec?
