Gun Registry Fraud
Mr. Peter MacKay (Pictou—Antigonish—Guysborough,
CPC): Mr. Speaker, if the Deputy Prime Minister and the government
really want to get to the bottom of it, they should start at the top. The
Deputy Prime Minister has the audacity to stand in this House and defend
her boss's action when she herself is implicated in an even bigger fraud
on the taxpayers and I am talking about the gun registry.
When will the Deputy Prime Minister and minister of public security start
demonstrating some respect for public security of taxpayers' money?
Hon. Anne McLellan (Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Safety
and Emergency Preparedness, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, because we are both
respectful of Canadians' values, they are committed to gun control and we
are committed to ensuring the wise expenditure of their tax dollars, we
are reviewing the present gun control program. We know Canadians are
committed to gun control but we also know they are committed to having an
effective and efficient program. That is what we are committed to on this
side of the House. That is what we will deliver.
