We announced several measures to protect Canada's natural environment, promote economic development, and stand up for law-abiding firearms owners.
These measures have been developed in close consultation with hunting, trapping, angling and conservation organizations in Canada.
Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair have signalled their intent to impose new restrictions on lawful firearms owners, including restoring the failed and costly long-gun registry. These initiatives would return Canada to the confrontational policies of the past which were not only costly and ineffective, but also disrespectful of rural Canadians.
Our approach will respect and work in close partnership with Canada's outdoor community, as well as conservation organizations who are seeking to protect and preserve Canada's natural environment for future generations.
