Dear Mr. Day,

Re: Protection of our Rights and Freedoms

I would like to express my concern about your interview on CTV's Question Period Sunday, 26February2006 in which you are reported as saying,

Although the government plans to scrap the registry, it has no plans to make it easier to legally own firearms ... the process to obtain a firearms license is difficult, and it will remain so.

Our Associations is concerned with the repeal of the entire Firearms Act, not simply the registry. If fact, we consider the licensing component the most odious aspect of the Firearms Act as federal licensing strikes at the very heart of our Right as citizens to protect ourselves.

We know that the ownership and possession of firearms must be restricted to responsible citizens. To that end our Association has endorsed  the Firearms Prohibition Registry (please see enclosed material).

The speedy repeal of the Firearms Act, the implementation to the Firearms Prohibition Registry, and the return of the responsibility to regulate firearms ownership to the provinces  would go a long way to restoring our faith in the federal government’s commitment to improving public safety while respecting the Rights of Canadian citizens.

We assure you of our continued encouragement and support as you begin to implement the programs of reforms which we so desperately need. We stand ready to assist you in any manner possible as we move forward towards a responsible, effective government that respects the Rights and Freedoms of all Canadians.
