The Right Honourable Stephen Harper,
Dear Mr. Harper,
Thank you for your letter of 03 January 2013 in which you state:
I totally agree with you, Mr. Harper. What we do this year is of vital importance. Our actions this year will indeed affect not just ourselves, but more importantly, our grandchildren.
As a grandparent I want to ensure that the next generation has the Right to have “Armes for their defense.”1
My granddaughter will only be able to defend herself if you, Mr. Prime Minister, honour your promise “to repeal Bill C-68” – the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act.2
My grandson will only be able to defend himself if you, Mr. Prime Minister, fully implement the Conservative Party Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.”3
Mr. Harper, you ask that I “be steadfast” in my support of our Party. Mr. Harper, I assure you, this year - 2013 - when you keep your promise to Canadians to repeal the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act owner licencing scheme that made the mere possession of a firearm a crime, I will support the Conservative Party.
Mr. Harper, you ask that I continue my “periodic contributions to sustain the Conservative Party.” Mr. Harper, I assure you, this year - 2013 - when you fully implement the Conservative Party Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly”, I will continue my contributions to the Conservative Party.
Mr. Prime Minister, as you requested, I have sent my prompt reply. I, in return, ask for your prompt action this year – 2013. Keep your promise; repeal the Firearms Act. Honour the Conservatives Party Policy; respect our Right to own and use firearms responsibly.

“I 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 [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.”
As approved by the CPC Montréal Convention, 19 March 2005
“There is only one to fix this mess and that is to elect a Conservative
government. We promise to repeal Bill C-68 and return the gun laws to
the way they were before 1995. Then I personally promise that I will start
the task of fixing all the flaws in federal firearm laws by requiring
that they be subjected to a public safety test administered by the Auditor
General of Canada. My proposal includes a sunset clause on all gun control
laws that have been proven by the Auditor General not to be cost effective
at reducing the criminal use of firearms and improving public safety.”
