Public Safety committee  They're certainly not subject to the same requirements as firearms.

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Yes. I agree. Most definitely we are first and foremost a science-based conservation organization concerned about the conservation of our fish and wildlife resources in both Ontario and across this country. Indeed, we work with partners across North America on those issues. We're

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  That's correct. I'll speak to a couple of things there. Most police officers, the vast majority of them, do their job very well and do it as they understand it. Until this bill came forward, I admit quite candidly, I did not realize that this loophole existed, and I deal with fi

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Candidly, no, I'm not aware that any of our members have been charged under this section of the Criminal Code, but we do have 100,000 members across the province and I'm not always aware of what's happening to each individual member at any given time. There has been significant

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Mr. Norlock, yes to all your questions. We work very closely with our affiliates across the country, in every province and every territory, from coast to coast to coast. I sit on several panels and committees with many of them on issues related to firearms and other issues. We ta

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Thank you very much for the question. I appreciate it. I have not discussed it with police officers; however, we did have a meeting last week with the Chief Firearms Officer of Ontario at her offices to discuss a number of issues. This was one that was on the table and there was

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  I do. For instance, the OFAH has a very large heritage hunting and fishing centre next door to our head office in Peterborough that was opened several years ago. There is a rifle range and an archery range in the basement. We use low-velocity air guns on the rifle range. These ar

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  I think my colleague out west, Mr. Brown, has outlined what could potentially happen. Do I think there are going to be a spate of charges against 12-year-olds for inappropriately storing or transporting a BB gun or a paintball gun or a pellet gun under the current law? No. Is tha

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Again, I'm not aware of that. It doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Certainly this is different from high-velocity guns that exceed certain standards in muzzle velocity, which are subject to storage and transportation restrictions under the law because of their velocity. I'm not awar

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Thank you very much. Good morning, Mr. Chair, members of the committee, and Mr. Brown in absentia. On behalf of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, the largest conservation-based organization in Ontario, our 100,000 members, supporters, and subscribers, and our 725

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Thank you. We have members all the time who either receive a letter or a phone call from the police to say it has come to their attention that your licence is expired and you have x amount of time to either renew your licence or get rid of your firearms. They tell you that if yo

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Yes, I do in terms of the screening, sir.

April 30th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Many of the people who hold POLs in this country are—how can I phrase this—fairly elderly or moving in that direction.

April 30th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  They are experienced firearms owners, and unfortunately, I have to put myself in that group now too.

April 30th, 2015Committee meeting

Greg Farrant

Public Safety committee  Yes, a lot of them are. I can't give you an accurate number, but I would hazard a guess that the vast number of people who hold POLs in this country have no interest in acquiring additional firearms at this time, and that's why they have POLs in the first place. Some of them will
