    C-42 Vote

    It looks like the vote on C-42 will be coming up when the politicians head back to Ottawa on April 20 after their long Easter break.

    We should take the time to remind those MPs who flip-flopped on the gun registry legislation, and those who have a significant firearms community in their riding that we won't be taken for granted. I put together a quick list of email addresses and phone numbers.

    If these folks are going to vote against C-42, they should know that we aren't happy about it.

    Green Party

    Bruce Hyer - broke ranks with the NDP and voted to abolish the gun registry. But his new leader, Elizabeth May seems opposed to this Bill

    John Rafferty - broke ranks with his party on the gun registry, but has said that streamlining the ATT is "a safety risk"

    Good point. It'll win anyway - but the more they catch flack for opposing it, the more they'll be reluctant to go against gun owners in the future and they will spread that message in their party.

    How many of them won their seats by more than 13.5%?

    Assuming firearms owners vote...in the last federal election about 13.5% of the participation electorate were firearms license holders.

    (Note 13.5% = "at least 60 seats" according to Wayne Easter)

    You can safely conclude that the silent ones are pro, the cons will speak their minds about it and as usual try to rally others in their camp.
    As someone else said it will go trough any way the conservative government has the most seats, plus those silent ones.
    I'll do what I have to do and deal with the consequences of my actions later

    Bill passed 148-121. Conservatives all in favour. NDP, Libs, Greens and other miscellaneous leftists voted against.

    Folks I posted above all voted against, let's let them know how we feel.

    Guys - they just voted to refer it to committee. Which is great, but it still has to get voted on in committee and sent back with the recommendations if any, and then get voted on at third reading. Then it goes to the upper house (senate).

    it WILL pass, it's moving along, the CPC controlls the committee - but it's not passed yet by a long shot.
