Minister of Finance
House of Commons
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6

Dear Mr. Flaherty,

Re: A Four-in-One Economic Stimulus Package

My associates & I enjoyed hearing you present the Conservatives’ economic outlook Wednesday evening in Saskatoon. We especially appreciated the opportunity to meet you afterwards and to discuss briefly our concerns.

As we mentioned, our primary concern is the way in which the Conservative Government each year wastes millions of our tax dollars implementing the inefficient Firearms Act, an unjust law that violates the Rights of responsible Canadian citizens to have ‘Armes for their Defense’.

We would like to offer a “four-in-one” solution to this problem; cancel all funding to the Firearms Act, and in its place implement a Firearms Prohibition Registry. This action would:

  1. stop wasting our tax dollars on an ineffective licensing system,
  2. preserve our Right to defend ourselves,
  3. provide an effective manner to actually promote public safety, and
  4. stimulate the economy in a meaningful manner.

This logical, simple action, which your fellow Conservative Caucus member Garry Breitkreuz has been advocating for years, would be an immediate way in which to put “shovels in the ground” by effectively utilizing staff and equipment that are currently being wasted in monitoring responsible citizens while ignoring those who perpetrate violent crime.

We trust that you will implement this common-sense recommendation.

Sincerely,

Edward B. Hudson DVM, MS
Secretary
