Ottawa destroys registry records

Okanagan-Shuswap MP pleased long-gun registry is scrapped

A major step has been taken in scrapping Canada’s controversial long-run registry.

All registry information, with the exception of in Quebec, has been destroyed.

“The deletion of the long-gun registry records marks a significant milestone in this government’s commitment to eliminating the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry,” said Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP.

“Promise made, promise kept.”

Mayes says that law-abiding gun owners will no longer be unfairly targeted and the federal government will continue to focus on tackling crime.

“Our government is making our streets and communities safer by targeting criminals who use firearms, not law-abiding Canadians,” he said.
