Recent News: Harper Government Introduces Bill to Kill Long-Gun Registry, Destroy Records

On May 2 federal Conservatives won the majority of seats in Canada's House of Commons.  Progressive-minded Canadians - who still represent the majority of our population - consistently do not support the economic and political agenda of the Stephen Harper government. That includes his persistent efforts to kill Canada's important long gun registry.

Harper has made it clear the registry will be eliminated under his majority rule. Legislation is expected to be introduced when the House of Commons sits - likely in the fall.

Over the summer, our union will be taking action - along with the Coalition for Gun Control and other allies. It's the second phase of our national Save the Long-Gun Registry campaign.

We will strategically target Conservative MPs that are most vulnerable to public pressure on gun control. Our campaign message is clear: a vote to scrap the registry is a vote to stop their re-election.

Members are encouraged to organize a community lobby with your MP, or even a fun community flash mob that will get our campaign message out.
