TORONTO — For Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, even something as serious as ending shootings in Toronto is about making announcements, not getting results.

After a week of shocking and outrageous shootings, Toronto Centre MP and Trudeau cabinet minister Marci Ien was bragging about what her government had done.

Of course, shootings are up again in Toronto, and we saw a brazen attack that killed two men last Sunday, but Ien was still boasting.

“It’s now illegal for anyone in your community to buy, sell, transfer, or import a handgun,” Ien posted to X just before 9:30 Friday night.

“We don’t listen to the gun lobby. We listen to survivors and communities who’ve experienced gun violence, and want these weapons off our streets.”

It’s a nice sentiment, but it doesn’t address reality.

Two men were shot and killed, several more injured after two other men opened fire last Sunday night near a Rexdale high school. More than 50 shots were fired just before 11 p.m. as two teams relaxed and lingered following a late evening soccer game.

Now, Delroy George Parkes, 61, and Seymour Gibbs, 46, are both dead, their families in mourning.

Earlier that day, a 14-year-old boy was randomly shot as he left his apartment building, also in Rexdale.

Neither Ien’s actions nor those of the Trudeau government have done anything to stop these shootings or other gun violence. And we know about a violent carjacking with a gun at Finch Ave. E. and McCowan Rd., in Scarborough, but how many more that we don’t know about have gone down in recent days and weeks?

LIBERALS: Our Government is ‘Proud’ of Costly and Mishandled Deer Cull, Wasted Tax Payer Funds

SENATE OF CANADA — Conservative Senators Don Plett and Yonah Martin present the latest stats (and spending) from the Liberal governments embarrassing deer cull on Sidney Island.

Trudeau representative Senator Marc Gold, who clearly showed he had very little knowledge of the incident, smugly excused his governments actions saying, “This government is proud of the measures it has taken...”

Trudeau Liberals Record on Gun Crime: Horrific

BRIDGE CITY NEWS — Political Analyst Brian Lilley tells Bridge City News Anchor Hal Roberts that when it comes to public safety, Liberals treat their ‘announcements,’ like they're ‘policies.’

In reality, violent crime and criminal gun violence is up all across Canada.

“Do you remember when carjacking, with a gun pointed at you, was something we thought of [happened only] in L.A.!?" Lilley said. "Their only reaction has been to make life more difficult for hunters and sport shooters, while making life easier for gangsters with guns.”

Fed Up With Crime, This Ottawa Store Owner Took Matters Into His Own Hands

BARRHAVEN — A store owner in Barrhaven who has been robbed multiple times wasn't going to let it happen again. Against the advice of police, he stepped in to stop another robbery from happening right in his store.

It happened at an eye glasses store called Eyes of Barrhaven on Strandherd Drive near Citigate Drive.

It unfolded in minutes during daylight hours on Monday. The store owner says the suspects walked in and started taking items off the shelves. That's when he jumped into action.

Surveillance video shows the moment four people walked into the store, the situation quickly escalating.

"Two of them were masked. They looked like they were not interested in buying anything. They were just coming in to take merchandise like they've done in the past five other times. And we just had enough of it," said Awni George, the owner of Eyes of Barrhaven.

George says he witnessed the thieves pocketing designer sunglasses and eyewear off the shelves.

"I was pushed by the individual as he took the frames right in front of me and said, 'You can't do anything about it.' And those were his words to me, 'We're going to come in here and we're going to take whatever we want and walk out.'"

Moving quickly, George stopped the robbery, perfoming a citizen's arrest...

13 Suspects Arrested in Quebec: 440 Firearms Seized

QUEBEC — One year after a mega-operation carried out across Canada which notably led to the seizure of 440 firearms, 13 suspects were arrested in Quebec for their alleged involvement in a vast arms trafficking and manufacturing network, authorities announced Friday morning.

The arrests were made over two days in the municipalities of Montreal, Berthierville, New Carlisle, Repentigny, Gatineau, Quebec and Saint-Calixte.

Joël Hector, 39, a resident of the Côte-des-Neiges neighborhood from whom at least one 3D printer was seized on June 20, and Montrealer David Duvall, 34, face several criminal weapons charges.

The other suspects arrested, eight men aged 26 to 63 and three women in their mid-30s, were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

They could potentially be charged with weapons possession for the purpose of trafficking, and manufacturing of firearms.

These 13 arrests come almost a year to the day after a huge police operation carried out simultaneously in eight Canadian provinces, including Quebec.

Agents from around twenty police forces across the country then carried out 64 searches and arrested 45 suspects...

New Zealand to Reform 'Outdated' Firearm Laws

WELLINGTON, NZ — The New Zealand government said on Friday it would reform the country's "outdated and complicated" firearm laws which have been in place for more than 40 years.

New Zealand's previous government tightened firearm laws after a gunman killed 51 Muslim worshippers in Christchurch 2019 in the country's worst peace-time mass shooting. While gun violence in New Zealand was rare, it has been increasing in recent years.

Associate Justice Minister Nicole McKee said on Friday that it was now time to update the country's Arms Act to make sure its fit for purpose for today and into the future.

"The Arms Act has been in place for over 40 years. It has been amended several times – in a piecemeal, and sometimes rushed way," McKee said in a statement.

"This has resulted in outdated and complicated requirements that unfairly target licensed firearms owners, often with no clear benefit to public safety," said McKee, who was formerly the spokesperson for the Council of Licensed Firearms Owners.
The current government has already introduced the Firearms Prohibition Orders Legislation Bill. The changes include making it harder for gang members to own guns but easier for people to have a ban on gun ownership lifted. It is also undertaking a consultation on the regulation of shooting clubs...
