The proposed Bill reintroduces important provisions to ensure the safety of all Canadians. However, additional provisions related to screening and licensing, tracking and control of sales, control and transport of restricted weapons and to end the possession of assault weapons are needed to respond adequately to key public safety concerns.

CFUW Requests Stronger Gun Control

May 11, 2018 - The lack of control over guns endangers human life. Guns facilitate violence and increase the vulnerability of women and children living in abusive situations to serious physical and psychological harm and to homicide.
CFUW wrote to Minister Goodale, Minister Monsef and several Members of Parliament to ask for strong provision in Bill C-71. Clubs across the country are also getting involved in this serious public safety issue and writing to their own elected officials. For more information contact cfuwadvocacy@rogers.com
