Portage-Lisgar M.P. Candice Hoeppner has launched a new website promoting a summer tour by the M.P. to ridings across the country to rally support for her private member’s bill to end the long-gun registry. In order for the bill to survive the next vote in the House of Commons, she must retain the support of the 20 opposition members who supported it at second reading.Mr. Iffy has vowed to whip his members into voting against it at the third and final reading even though eight of his members before voted in favor of Candice's bill. Same with the Dippers. Twelve had voted to scrap it but now apparently some are changing their minds.
Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff has indicated he will whip the Liberal caucus vote, while earlier this month, N.D.P. Justice Critic Joe Comartin suggested that some of the N.D.P. members who originally supported Hoeppner’s legislation may now be changing their minds.Go and visit Candice's new Scrap the Long Gun Registry website. It's very well done. Pressure your Liberal and NDP members who are wavering to vote in favor of finally scrapping the over bearing, overly costly long gun registry. Pressure the leaders and whips to allow a free vote. The final vote will be coming up shortly after the house resumes in September on the 22nd. Free the law abiding farmers and duck hunters! Start the pressure now!
