THE CANADIAN SHOOTING SPORTS ASSOCIATION WELCOMES FORMER MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT GARRY BREITKREUZ TO THE CSSA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Etobicoke, ON – “They can lie louder, but I can tell the truth longer.” Those famous words were spoken in the House of Commons by Garry Breitkreuz during his tenure as the Member of Parliament for Yorkton-Melville, Saskatchewan. For over 20 years, Mr. Breitkreuz served in Parliament as the resident expert on firearm issues and was honoured and acclaimed around the globe for his diligent work on behalf of lawful firearm owners. Respected by politicians of all stripes, Garry Breitkreuz was known by his House colleagues as a calm and reasonable man who told the truth and followed his convictions.
Mr. Breitkreuz recently retired from the federal political scene to spend more time with his beloved family after so many years serving Canadians. But his passion for firearm owners and their struggle to retain their rights and respect within Canadian society is something in which he truly believes.
Mr. Breitkreuz has graciously accepted a position on the CSSA's Board of Directors.
Once again, Canada's best firearm organization gets even better.
“Garry Breitkreuz is a welcome addition to Team CSSA and its Board of Directors,” said president Steve Torino. “He brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge that few people in our community can boast. It will be a pleasure to work with Garry in the years ahead.”
Speaking from his home in Springside, Saskatchewan, Mr. Breitkreuz said: “For many years the Canadian Shooting Sports Association has provided firearm owners with excellent representation. I am excited to be able to continue to serve our community of lawful and trustworthy Canadians under the auspices of our country's most effective gun owners’ group, Team CSSA.”
“In the months and years ahead, we will face significant challenges. Canada's target shooters, hunters and all others who own and use firearms, owe it to themselves to be part of the CSSA – to be part of the solution,” concluded Breitkreuz.
