THIRD READING SPEECH ON BILL C-71
BILL TO AMEND CERTAIN ACTS AND REGULATIONSIN RELATION TO FIREARMS
THIRD READING—VOTE DEFERRED
Hon. Yonah Martin (Deputy Leader of the Opposition):
Honourable senators, as I said, I will be brief. I feel it’s important to add my voice to this debate as an urban Canadian who has lived in Vancouver for more than four decades. I just came from Creston, B.C., a rural part of my province where most nights we were around a fire pit. I know there were gun owners around the circle, gun enthusiasts like my husband and yet in this community, people leave their doors open and there is a real sense of community.
