    Lynda Kiejko is 36 years old, a member of the Calgary Rifle & Pistol Club, won two gold medals at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto (10m air pistol, 25m pistol), and a bronze in the 2010 games (10m air pistol pairs), and competes regularly.

    She is Bill Hare's daughter. Bill did a lot to promote handgun shooting in Alberta (including keeping Olympic style competition), especially to make it accessible to kids about Lynda's and her sister's age.

    I really hope Lynda will have a positive influence on the panel given her upbringing (and not her Olympic experience), but... not holding my breath. That panel is meant to rubber-stamp draconian legislation.

    Forgive me if I've missed it, but have they released the full list for the committee yet?

    Well natalie provost is on there for being a victim, maybe we need some gun law victims on there. Maybe a few high river residents or jesse sansone. Maybe Ian Thomson could explain how awesome the gun laws protect people.
    There is another side to victims of guns, the victims of the gun laws.

    let's get this straight: Pretty Boy's Lieberals just pissed in our collective faces by appointing the most rabid, emotional and loudest anti-gun person in the country as a vice-Chair to a committee that supposedly has to make logical and bias-free recommendations on future firearms policy
