Public Consultation Request…………

Public Consultation Request…………

In late August of this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a mandate letter for Bill Blair.

For those of you not familiar with Blair, he’s the ex-Toronto cop turned Member of Parliament who was recently appointed to a brand new Ministry and given the title “Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Prevention”.

His job, primarily, is to assist Uncle Ralph in ensuring Bill C-71 gets passed AND to “lead an examination of a national ban on handguns and assault weapons, while not impeding their lawful use by Canadians” – there’s an oxy-moron if I’ve ever heard one.

What does this examination look like? Well, shortly after his orders came down from on high, Blair stood in committee and promised to conduct a full and balanced “public consultation” before the end of the calendar year.

Here is your “public consultation”. Please take the time to fill out this online survey right away and forward it to your friends and family to do the same.

ONLINE ENGAGEMENT – HANDGUN AND ASSAULT WEAPONS

If you are a business owner, retailer or club, please forward this to your entire mailing list.

Please, this is vital to this fight and to keeping the property we have legally acquired. Act now!!

 

With many thanks,

Tracey Wilson
