    It's an announcement. It's not a Bill, it hasn't passed 3 readings, it hasn't gone to the Senate.

    The Libs are great at announcements. Not so great at following through.

    Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly says
    "As Canada's foreign minister I have the authority to deny any export or import permit application that is contrary to Canada's security. When making these decisions I always keep Canadian interests, safety and security top of mind."
    Handguns will now be put on the Import Control List.
    Takes effect in 2 weeks, which Joly says is the earliest they could do this and respect due process.

    The goal of the handgun import ban is to save lives, says public safety minister

    So…Homey will no longer be able to get handguns into the country; thus saving lives at the Jane and Finch 2-way range, right?…right?

    You know what? I almost wish that there are a bunch of shootings in late August!!! And then in September, October, November, etc. Maybe then people will wake up that the stupid Liberals are doing this for appearances sake. What a bunch of buffoons!

    It's being done via a change in regulation.

    Doesn't need to go through the legislative process.

    Like Wynne's goal of reducing auto insurance fees and failing, it's a "stretch goal".

    Correct. It's not a bill. It's a regulation. No need for readings or votes in the House or the Senate.

    Canadians deserve to feel safe in their communities. That is why the Government of Canada has a comprehensive plan that gets firearms off our streets and more resources into our communities. A central part of this is the recently introduced Bill C-21. The bill addresses the alarming role of guns in gender based violence, gets tough on organized crime and most significantly introduces a national freeze on the sale, transfer and ownership of handguns, anywhere in Canada.

    The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable Marco Mendicino, Minister of Public Safety, today announced a temporary import ban on the importation of restricted handguns. This will help bring the ultimate impact of the national handgun freeze into force sooner. This temporary ban means that individuals and businesses will no longer be able to import handguns into Canada, subject to narrow exceptions that mirror those in Bill C-21. These restrictions will take effect on August 19th, 2022, and will last until the national freeze comes into force.
