Candidates,Brian Topp,Paul Dewar, and Peggy Nash all would bring the registry back. Nathan Cullen,Nikki Ashton,Robert Chisholm, and Martin Singh all say they wouldn't bring it back. There was no response from Romeo Saganash. Thomas Mulcair hasn't taken a position. It looks like an urban/rural divide.
One good thing is that the registry boondoggle will soon be a foot note in history.
The government is in the process of killing the it and it will soon be gone. Third and final reading will take place at the end of the month which is next week. It will then go to the Senate. Hopefully they can pass it before the Christmas break.
The Harper government's legislation to kill the registry is being studied by a parliamentary committee, and it is expected to return to the House of Commons at the end of the month for a final vote.If whoever becomes the leader in the NDP and wants to revive the gun registry, go for it, because it will be fodder in the next election. Make no bones about it. A majority of the public is on the government's side on this one.
