Madam Speaker, these are surprising comments coming from a member from Quebec. We know that following the Polytechnique shooting, half a million Canadians asked for a prohibition of military-style assault weapons. In Sainte-Foy, a young man with a firearms licence went to the Quebec City mosque with a VZ58, a military-style assault rifle. That is one message we heard.
We are not going after law-abiding citizens. Our objective is to make communities safer by prohibiting military-style assault weapons.
They cut $400 million from the border services agency and 1,000 full-time jobs. How does that make our border safer? They can talk all they want, but they did not take action.
