“I will respect you.”
After years of non-stop harassment by the Liberal Party, MP and Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre told a packed audience at CSSA’s annual “Stick To Your Guns” dinner that he will, once elected Prime Minister, implement simplified classification, do a plain-language rewrite of the Firearms Act and would respect the rights and freedoms of Canada’s firearms owners.
He also said he would add the Enforced Firearm Prohibition Order to the Criminal Code, a sure-fire method of reducing gang-fuelled gun crime on our city streets. This is great news, as the federal government under both parties has ignored the complete failure of Canada’s existing Firearm Prohibition Order system.
On Saturday evening, Pierre Poilievre told a packed audience at CSSA’s annual Stick To Your Guns Dinner that he will, once elected Prime Minister, implement the Simplified Classification System, do a plain-language rewrite of the Firearms Act, and add the Enforced Firearm Prohibition Order to the Criminal Code.
This is great news, as the federal government under both parties has ignored the complete failure of Canada’s existing Firearm Prohibition Order system.
On the firearms file, Pierre Poilievre stands firm with firearms owners.
“A Poilievre government will end the attacks on our lawful, licensed, vetted hunters and farmers.”[i]
“Trudeau’s going to spend over a billion dollars targeting our law-abiding hunters and farmers, right? Meanwhile, he’s introduced legislation to reduce criminal penalties for gun crimes, like smuggling and extortion. This is insane. 82% of all the guns used in crime in downtown Toronto do not come from law-abiding people. They are smuggled in from the United States of America.”
But of much greater importance to most Canadians, Pierre Poilievre’s primary commitment is to make Canada the freest nation on earth.[ii]
“Forty years after Pierre Elliott Trudeau brought home the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, his son Justin is leading a relentless attack against its principles. The Prime Minister has introduced legislation that attacks section 2(b) of the Charter, which is supposed to guarantee free expression for Canadians.
“Trudeau’s Bill C-11 would give government bureaucrats the power to manipulate social media algorithms, so that only state-approved content is visible to Canadian readers and viewers. And recently, the Prime Minister empowered police to seize the bank accounts of political opponents.”[iii]
“Trudeau’s unscientific mandates are ruining people’s lives. If I become Prime Minister, I will put an end to these mandates once and for all and give Canadians back control over their own personal health decisions.”[iv]
Poilievre’s next priority is to get the nation’s financial house in order.
“The more Liberals spend, the more things cost. That is JustinFlation,” said Poilievre. “I will end it, by restoring central bank independence, mandating an independent audit of all the money printing, and stopping the risky Central Bank Digital Currency.”[v]
Prices at Canada’s gas pumps are some of the highest in the world, another issue Poilievre would bring to an end.
“Justin Trudeau supports oil — as long as it is foreign oil. Every time he kills a Canadian energy project, foreign dictators like Putin do a victory dance, because they get to dominate the world market,” said Poilievre. “We need to get Canadian oil and gas to market, and that starts with inviting projects unfairly blocked by this government to re-apply for approval.”
