The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
Dear Mr. Harper,
Re: Stephen Harper's Plan for Canadians
Members of our Association supported you faithfully when you were the Leader of the Opposition because we believed you when you said you would repeal the entire Firearms Act. We waited patiently these past two and half years during your minority government, knowing you could not deliver all that we wanted. And we wanted to believe that if you gained a majority that you would honour your word and implement the Conservative Party of Canada’s platform which many of our members worked tirelessly to adopt.
Therefore we are extremely disappointed to see just one week before the election that "Stephen Harper's Plan for Canadians" betrays us, your most ardent supporters.
YOUR plan for Canadians excludes a large number of honest, responsible firearms owners who believe that we have an innate, inalienable Right to have 'Armes for their Defense'. YOUR plan to "ensure that all firearms belong to licensed gun owners” as mandated by the Firearms Act would utterly destroy this Right.
Regrettably we cannot support your bid to retain your office as our Prime Minister. We need a leader who respects the Rights of Canadians to have 'Armes for their Defense' and is willing to support us as we have supported you.
