Elites obeyed, constituents betrayed
by Dennis E. Florian
If there were ever any doubt, it can now be put to rest. Nothing short of a majority government, formed by the Conservative Party of Canada, is going to get rid of the multi-billion dollar white elephant that is the long gun registry.
Both the Liberals and New Democrats had the chance to get rid of it but chose to obey their party ideologues and keep the albatross firmly around all our necks.
And why would they do such a thing? The excuse du jour boils down to, “We had to do it because the Tories were being so mean.” Of course. Being an elitist means never having to admit you’re wrong.
