Port of Vancouver ATIP Response dated and received by Dennis R. Young November 5, 2019
‘NO RECORDS EXIST’ – Reference is being made to a number of anecdotal reports of: (1) Illegal shipments of firearms, ammunition and explosives found in ships or containers leaving Canada and/or destined for Canada, and (2) Firearms, ammunition and explosives reported stolen from ships or containers at the Port of Vancouver.
EXCERPT: In response to questions from the Globe, Chief Firearms Officer of Ontario Dwight Peer explained that police reporting policies around firearms-licence holders vary from force to force. But if a licence holder is reported to have sexually assaulted someone, he said that should, when coded correctly, trigger a notification to the CFO. The CFO can also receive calls from family, friends, neighbours or physicians who have concerns about a firearms-licence holder, he said. These concerns are then followed-up on a case-by-case basis. He declined to comment on whether they were notified in this case—or whether any review is being done.
640 Firearms Lost – 173 Firearms Stolen (see attached for breakdown by types of firearms)
