Bill C-68

The Saskatchewan Federation of Police Officers

The Saskatchewan Federation of Police Officers entered the debate on C-68 early in 1995.

We polled the Federation membership for its opinion. As a result of this polling it was found the membership, supported tougher sentences for the criminal use and possession of a firearm.

The Federation chose to reject support of C-68, primarily the registration and licencing sections as they posed a substantial waste of scarce resources both in manpower and finances, with no measurable effect on the criminal element.

Saskatchewan police officers do not feel threatened or intimidated by responsible law abiding citizens owning any type of firearm be it rifle, shotgun, handgun, or military rifle; engaging in any activity that does not threaten or affect the peace, order and safety of our society.

We are deeply concerned over the direction our Government is taking and the effect a poorly conceived and thought out piece of legislation is going to have on a way of life we in Canada have lived with and enjoyed most, if not all of our lives.
