ONTARIO SOLICITOR GENERAL DENIES ACCESS TO FIREARMS INTEREST POLICE (FIP) FILES IN MURDER-SUICIDE CASE

Complaint to Ontario Information Commissioner by Dennis R. Young – September 2, 2019
EXCERPT: The records I have requested from the Solicitor General and the Ontario Provincial Police will help the Domestic Violence Death Review Committee in the conduct of their review of the Mark Jones murder-suicide and answer questions as to why he was able to retain possession of his firearms after serious reports had been filed with police. It’s clear from information being made available to Parliament and the public that the RCMP and the Ontario Chief Firearms Office do not collect enough information on an ongoing basis nor have they done a sufficient evaluation of the effectiveness of the two ‘Red Flag’ systems aimed exclusively at licensed gun owners implemented by the Firearms Act passed by the Federal Parliament in 1995, namely; the Firearms Interest Police (FIP) Database and the Canadian Firearms Registry Online (CFRO).
