When criminal defence lawyer Ed Burlew was sifting through the documents sent over by a Crown prosecutor regarding his client, one jumped out. It was proof that the RCMP had kept a copy of the gun registry despite Parliament ordering it destroyed in 2012.

Mr. Speaker, media revelations that the RCMP kept information from the Liberals’ long-gun registry that Parliament ordered destroyed is blowing new holes in Canadians’ already shaky trust in government.

Now we know why the RCMP targeted certain homes for firearms collections during the High River flooding in Alberta. It is because it had a copy of the registry information. It was not supposed to have it, but it knew exactly where to look.

It is disgraceful that the government and its national institutions cannot be trusted to honour the same rules it, in turn, expects all citizens to follow.

What a betrayal this is of Canadians’ assumptions of equality under the law.

In light of these reports, the Prime Minister and his Minister of Public Safety need to ensure that the RCMP destroys its secret list and comes clean on just what other private information it has compiled that the law does not permit it to have.

As the prime minister said in
May 2020 ” the military & police cannot protect Canadians”
Well then who can? The 1st rule of law is protect yourself & your loved ones.

Welcome to the tyranny of a government no different than the Communists in Poland or Czechoslovakia or China. The appearance of good behind which hides the epitome of evil. Think I’m exaggerating? Watch the Calgary Police arrest a Pastor on a freeway because he showed them up. Revenge. Pure and simple. And we have a federal government that does exactly the same thing. Communism is in our midst and the citizens of this country don’t seem to mind. My father in law did not spend 3 1/2 years in a prison camp in Nazi Germany for this.

There was never any doubt in my mind that there were copies of the registry kept. The writers of BillC-68 would not allow that work and waste of money to be destroyed. It doesn’t fit their agenda.
