When confronted on the 273 million dollar expenditures, officials have been very vague; however, they have admitted that a good majority of the money is allocated to the computer system. Yes, the same system we have already spent untold millions on. It appears to me that this very expensive system still is not working and that is the real reason the police and military guns are not registered. The sad part of this is that they have admitted to spending $92,809,000 for fiscal year 2004-2005, which is over and above the $273 million!
The Liberals are under considerable pressure to do something about the escalating gun violence in Toronto. Rather than admit the registry, which only tracks the law-abiding gun owners, has been a complete failure, they are now lobbying the provinces to sue American gun manufacturing companies, as they are apparently the problem. Of course this is part and parcel of the same problem that brought us Bill C-68 and at that time Allan Rock said and I quote, We have taken strong measures to deter the smuggling and illegal movement of firearms, and all of this while respecting the legitimate interests of law-abiding firearms owners who use their guns for hunting, sport shooting or collecting. In 1998, Jean Valin, Justice spokesman told us and I quote, Gun registration will also reduce smuggling at our borders. Newly manufactured inventory will be automatically registered. Any firearm imported into Canada for sale will be traceable throughout its history. Illegal shipments will be easier to stop and customs officers will be able to identify shipments against the database. Lets hope the provinces are not that gullible.
The people of Brazil have just voted down by referendum a bill that would have banned gun ownership in that country. Common sense does prevail if left in the hands of the public.
On another note, the Liberals are moving forward with legislation that will allow tapping of your e-mail, internet and phone. I think that they should do a pilot project on themselves. Maybe we wouldnt need to have things like the Gomery Inquiry!
