On June 11, 2018, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale tabled the Government’s responses. The problem is many of the questions Larry Maguire asked of the government were left unanswered. By Dennis R.

PETITION TO PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU: SHOULDN’T POLICE KNOW WHERE THESE BAD GUYS WITH GUNS LIVE? We residents of Canada call on the Government to pass a motion making it mandatory for judges when imposing a firearms prohibition order, as part of a criminal sentence, a protection order or restraining order, also make it mandatory for these persons to report any change of address to police and this information be made available to police in a database on CPIC (Canadian Police Information Centre).
