Mr. Harper’s Promise to Firearms Owners

In a letter dated 15 December 2006, Garry Breitkreuz wrote:

We have been united in our 12-year fight to repeal Bill C-68. I will never give up and I hope you will stay with us until it [The Firearms Act] is dead and gone.

I leave you with the promise then leadership candidate Stephen Harper made to us all in January 2002:

I [Mr. Harper] was and still am in total agreement with the statement made in the House of Commons by former Reform Leader Preston Manning on 13 June 1995:

Bill C-68, if passed into law will not be a good law. It will be a blight on the legislative record of the government, a law that fails the three great tests of constitutionality, of effectiveness and of democratic consent to f the governed. What should be the fate of a bad a law? It should be repealed ... .’

Bill C-68 [The Firearms Act] has proven to be a bad law and has created a bureaucratic nightmare for both gun owners and the government. As Leader of the Official Opposition, I will use all powers afforded to me as Leader and continue our party’s fight to repeal Bill C-68 and replace it with a firearms control system that is cost effective and respects the rights of Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.
[emphasis added]

Rest assured Garry Breitkreuz will never betray the firearms community.

Garry Breitkreuz, Member of Parliament, Conservative Party of Canada
