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.

Sincerely,

Edward B. Hudson, DVM, MS
Secretary

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 of 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 It should be repealed ...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
