I'm honestly surprised they didn't propose a national handgun ban.I am convinced at this point, nothing short of removing the firearms act and putting back in the pre-1994 restrictions will amount to anything. The OIC portion of the law is the most dangerous part as it allows them to outlaw any firearm (or all firearms) without even having to go through parliament.
Maybe they are saving a few announcements & promises for closer to election day.I'm honestly surprised they didn't propose a national handgun ban.

They didn't offer any funding for municipalities to enact bans under Bill C-21.They're trying a detour by offering money to those who take up the burden.
Contrary to what I posted in another thread in error, that's $1B total to be spread across all of Canada that elects to enact his ban.They are now, $1b, to municipalities or provinces to enact hand gun bans.
Now, that wouldn't be ethical. Which is probably why they've chosen that COA.Now, last time I checked, offering money to officials (elected or not) to enact legislation/by-laws favouring you (or in this case doing your dirty job for you) is called bribery.
Not sure how many saw the French debate but…The good news is that even if the CPC gets a minority government, they do not have to go to Parliament to reverse the recent legislation by the Liberals.
I notice the "National Observer" (very left wing) is bringing out the "Hidden agenda on abortion" as well, the Libs are desperately trying to get some sort of fear mongering to stick.
His workaround was likely the "Notwithstanding" clause.Pretty sure last time this came up, there was a discussion of jurisdiction. Kenney and Ford both said it wasn't happening, as the province regulates municipalities. Trudeau claims to have a work around, but as far as I know hasn't articulated it yet. I'm guessing he really doesn't have the workaround and is dangling the money as a carrot to places like Toronto and Quebec for votes. Once in, he'll just ignore it like so many other election promises he makes.
I wonder if the provinces used the clause first, against federal encroachment, whether that would take the wind out of his sails.His workaround was likely the "Notwithstanding" clause.
