    Please resign.

    • Petition to the Prime Minister e-2574
      The Prime Minister’s firearms confiscation regime, undemocratically imposed without debate during a pandemic while Parliament is suspended, is an assault on Canadian democracy;
      Canada already has stringent regulations and comprehensive legislation related to firearms ownership;
      Canada has millions of responsible, law-abiding firearms owners;
      Data shows that the confiscation regime would not stop firearms violence in Canada;
      The majority of firearms used in violent crimes are obtained illegally and/or are smuggled into Canada;
      Legal firearms owners are strong advocates for measures that will actually prevent firearms violence;
      Legal firearms owners in Canada are vetted on a daily basis through the CPIC system;
      The Prime Minister is using the emotion of the tragedy in Nova Scotia to impose this confiscation regime even though all of the firearms the murderer used were illegally obtained;
      The list of firearms to be confiscated is arbitrary and not based on functionality;
      “Assault rifles”, or fully automatic firearms, have been banned in Canada since 1977;
      Criminals who have illegally obtained firearms will not be impacted by this confiscation regime; and
      The federal government is abandoning evidenced-based decision making as it relates to preventing firearm violence.
      We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to immediately scrap his government’s May 1, 2020, Order in Council decision related to confiscating legally owned firearms and instead pass legislation that will target criminals, stop the smuggling of firearms into Canada, go after those who illegally acquire firearms, and apologize to legal firearms owners in Canada.

  2. We have to wait until Trump is gone.

    He has no leadership on this or anything else for that matter. He’s all talk.

  4. Trudeau wants Americans away from Canada…well, TRUDUMB, WE WANT TO GET BORDERED FROM YOU

  5. Thought we have freedom of the press here in Canada. Prime Ministers Office should not be able to choose who can ask questions!

    Public health should tell the truth of this virus. Very contagious and can be transmitted thru aerosol. Can be infected in just few sec talking to the virus carriers. If reopen and not wearing masks, cases will be bouncing up again. Look at Korea, even they have second wave, the number is still under 50 cases a day.

    Maybe this moron, Theresa tam and our useless health minister should have thought about border control at the beginning of the pandemic. The politically correct approach has caused the needless deaths of many Canadians.
