Thank you to every Canadian who signed e-2574 (Democratic process) making it the most signed Parliament of Canada e-petition in history with 230,905 signatures!
"We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to immediately scrap his government’s May 1, 2020, Order in Council decision related to confiscating legally owned firearms and instead pass legislation that will target criminals, stop the smuggling of firearms into Canada, go after those who illegally acquire firearms, and apologize to legal firearms owners in Canada."
