Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government has splurged $42 million on its firearm ‘buyback’ scheme without confiscating a single firearm to date.

Public Safety Canada, in response to an order paper question filed by Conservative Senator Don Plett last September, uncovered the federal government spending $41,094,556 without any results.

“This is a boondoggle, and it hasn’t even begun,” said Plett during the Senate question period on Friday.

Over the past four years, the feds assigned 60 department employees to work on the project, in addition to 15 from the RCMP, reported True North.

Public Services and Procurement Canada assigned “the equivalent of 5.825 full-time employees,” while Service Canada devoted two employees to oversee the program.

“$42 million spent, 83 people employed full time in Ottawa … for what?” Tracey Wilson, vice-president of the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights told True North.

“This government has … no idea how to get the job done,” she added.

NDP MPs Charlie Angus, Carol Hughes, Rachel Blaney won’t run again in next federal election

OTTAWA — Charlie Angus felt so much love Thursday, he joked that it felt like his funeral.

The outspoken, often combative New Democrat MP triggered the outpouring when he declared he would not be seeking re-election after two decades representing his far-flung northern Ontario riding.

The news — fellow NDP stalwarts Carol Hughes and Rachel Blaney are also standing down — will come as a body blow to the federal party, which faces a stout electoral challenge from Pierre Poilievre’s resurgent Conservatives.

Nearly a quarter of the NDP’s caucus have announced they are set to step down, or have done so already.

The Conservatives, meanwhile, are eyeing NDP seats in British Columbia and northern Ontario, places where their relentless campaigning on cost-of-living issues and the Liberal price on pollution are resonating.

Indeed, Poilievre couldn’t help himself Thursday, using social media to remind prospective voters of the allegiances between the New Democrats and the governing Liberals.

NDP MPs jumping off Jagmeet’s ship before going down in defeat for voting to hike carbon taxes, free violent criminals, ban hunting rifles and double housing costs,” the Conservative leader posted.

The 'Spin Docs' Hate Hunters AND Pellet Guns

There's no question the radical anti-gun group Doctors for Protection from Guns would LOVE a blanket ban on all lawfully owned firearms in Canada, but did you know they recently called for regulations on pellet guns?

VIRAL: 'The People of Canada are Going to Annihilate You'

Ontario Premier Doug Ford urged the federal government to cancel or put a hold on the carbon tax ahead of a planned increase, warning that if they don’t, Justin Trudeau would get annihilated in the next election.

“Guys, wake up. Smell the coffee. Like what don't you understand?” Ford asked in Milton, Ont.

“Cancel this carbon tax, put it on hold. Do whatever. And if you don't, the people of Canada are going to annihilate you when the election comes up. Simple as that.”

He's not wrong, as we pointed out on X.

The CCFR, and Canada's 2.3 Million licensed gun owners, will be at the next election to make Ford's warning, a reality. You can bet on it.

Medicine Hat area’s only indoor shooting range has made the difficult decision to close permanently, citing higher utility and rental costs as well as firearm restrictions imposed by the federal government.

Canadian Gun Hub opened in Dunmore in 2016 as a shooting range and expanded into firearms classroom training and retail shortly after.

Its eight-bay shooting range was a popular location that was used to host corporate events as well as bachelor and bachelorette parties and provided a safe location for unlicensed users to shoot guns they wouldn’t legally be allow to touch.

Facing potentially higher rental costs and rising utility fees, as well as seeing a decline in customers, owner Rocky Rutledge told the News he decided to shut down earlier this month...

Quebec’s police watchdog, the BEI, says it will take over the investigation into Thursday morning’s brazen drive-by shootings, which ended with a fatal car crash in Montreal that left two men dead.

Toronto cop charged after his gun allegedly found at Brampton crime scene

A constable with the Toronto Police Service (TPS) has been charged after his firearm was allegedly found at a crime scene in Brampton where shots had been fired.

In a news release on Thursday, TPS said the charges stem from an investigation by Peel Regional Police (PRP) into the incident that occurred on Dec. 9, 2023, at a business near Rutherford Road South and Clark Boulevard.

According to PRP, two suspects arrived in the area, and one brandished a gun and fired multiple rounds into the business. No injuries were reported.

Shortly after, officers responded and caught one of the suspects. They also recovered two firearms, a loaded magazine and ammunition.

The suspect, a 23-year-old man from B.C., was charged with several offences. PRP said the second suspect remains at large and that they believe he has left the country.

During the course of the investigation, PRP discovered that one of the firearms they seized was registered to 51-year-old Const. Frederick Teatero, TPS alleges.

The firearm was allegedly never reported missing or stolen.

A search warrant was executed at the officer’s home in Hamilton, resulting in the seizure of an overcapacity magazine and twenty registered firearms that were allegedly stored carelessly...
