The Liberal Yukon Premier, Ranj Pillai, has been saying he supports Yukon firearms owners, claiming he is on their side, but will he join the Yukon Party (as well as Saskatchewan, and Alberta) by adopting legislation to protect innocent firearms owners from the federal governments planned firearm confiscation? MLA Brad Cathers raised the issue in Question Period on March 20th, 2024.

To Premier Pillai's credit, he has engaged with Minister Dominic LeBlanc requesting a Chief Firearms Officer position for Yukon. Whether he will ultimately work with the opposition Yukon Party to write and secure a Yukon Firearms Act remains to be seen, but you can be assured the CCFR will keep a close eye on the Yukon Liberals.

With Liberals Failing to Keep Criminals in Jail, Victims Say They Will Start Protecting Themselves

One Toronto-area resident, who survived a violent home invasion, said leaving his keys available to thieves wasn't 'a solution,' especially in light of the anti-theft measures he already had in place. "And then having those people get the keys and not being able to steal my car successfully, forcing them to come up and put a Glock 9mm to my head, that's not a good solution," he said.

Data collected by police shows auto thefts have risen to 4x the rate recorded in 2015, from 3,000 to more than 12,000 cases in 2023. Residential thefts and carjackings have also risen in step during the same period.

Feeling as though Liberal politicians and law enforcement won't, or can't, protect them, Peter says he and his neighbours plan to take matters into their own hands.

Rebel News interviewed Tracey Wilson from the CCFR, who stated that Bill C-21 'directly targets licensed sport shooters and hunters instead of criminals.'

On March 16, 2024, Rebel News attended the Toronto Sportsmen's Show, a popular event that caters to Canada's outdoor enthusiasts. The event, known as one of the largest of its kind in the nation, attracts a diverse array of individuals passionate about outdoor activities.

Attendees flocked to this particular event not only to indulge in their love for outdoor pursuits but also to seek invaluable guidance and insights aimed at enhancing their skills as hunters, sports shooters, fishermen, boaters, and conservationists.

Amidst the event's vibrancy, there was a notable concern among attendees regarding Canada's firearms community. Many expressed dissatisfaction with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's measures, particularly Bill C-21, which they saw as unfairly restricting their rights.

This sentiment wasn't new. At last year's TACCOM event, gun owners had already voiced their discontent with Bill C-21, and this year's Sportsmen's Show saw a continuation of these discussions.

We spoke to Tracey Wilson from the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR), and she voiced that Bill C-21 is "junk," adding that the bill "directly targets licensed sport shooters and hunters instead of criminals..."

Ford Govt 'Sick and Tired' of Soft-on-Crime Liberals

Responding to recent controversy surrounding comments from Toronto Police regarding repeat car thieves, Doug Ford reminded media that criminal code enforcement was federal jurisdiction, adding if it were up to him, he'd let violent repeat offenders 'rot in jail,' saying "I can't wait until we catch these bad guys ... and throw them in jail for a long time, I'd let them rot in jail. They're lucky I'm not in charge ... because I'd have these guys in jail for the next fifty years..."

Former CFB Trenton commander pleads guilty after bird shot at from boat

The former commander of CFB Trenton has pleaded guilty to charges of carelessly storing firearms and public mischief after a bird was shot at from the boat he was operating last summer.

Col. Leif Dahl will have to complete 12 months of probation, is barred from possessing any firearms during that time except as needed for his role with the military, and must make a $500 donation to Ducks Unlimited.

He received a conditional discharge, meaning he won't have a conviction on his record after his probation is complete.

"I made a mistake. I know that and I accept full responsibility for my actions," said Dahl, reading from a statement in Belleville, Ont., court Thursday.

He added his role as a senior officer with the Canadian Armed Forces meant the incident "caused distress and brought embarrassment" to his family and others who serve...

‘We have to look at the root cause of these problems:’ Tackling gun violence in Toronto

A drive-by shooting Friday in the York neighbourhood was the fourth in the past week and that has advocates once again highlighting the need to address the root causes of gun violence, particularly in young people.

According to Toronto police data, so far in 2024, there has been a 140 per cent increase in the number of shooting incidents compared to the same time period in 2023. In the past week alone, one man was injured in a shooting Monday in Etobicoke, two people were killed and a third wounded in a daylight triple shooting on Tuesday in Regent Park, and a young male was injured in Friday’s drive-by shooting.

While a spokesperson for the City referenced its SafeTO program, a 10-year community safety and well-being plan geared toward preventing violence through engagement and intervention efforts, advocates say the city doesn’t fully grasp what’s going on in the community.

“We need to look at the fact of sustainable income, poverty, and also trauma that these young people have been dealing with,” said Richard Miller, founder of the non-profit Keep6ix...

Pierre Poilievre made stops in Fredericton and Halifax to speak with constituents, including licensed firearms owners. He said hunters and sport shooters have one message for Trudeau: Stop attacking legal firearm owners, and go after the real criminals instead.

"We're going to stand on the side of our law-abiding hunters and sport shooters. Make no mistake, if Trudeau and the NDP get re-elected, they will ban all hunting rifles...Trudeau claimed four years ago he was going to ban them. He still hasn't figured out how to do that."

Gun runner caught near Cornwall with 59 firearms sentenced to 11 years

A Quebec man was sentenced to 11 years in prison after he was caught smuggling 59 contraband guns across the St. Lawrence River in a cross-border operation that was busted in 2021, when a concerned Cornwall resident witnessed the “brazen” daytime handoff.

Inti Falero-Delgado pleaded guilty in 2023 to importing illegal firearms — which included 53 handguns and six modified AR-15-style assault rifles with the serial numbers removed — that were purchased in the United States and were headed for the Canadian black market.

The gun-runners’ handoff on Nov. 26, 2021, was captured by a security camera mounted on a private boathouse on Farlinger Drive in South Glengarry, a riverfront residential street on the outskirts of Cornwall in an area long known as a popular area for smugglers, according to an agreed statement of facts filed in Cornwall court.

A concerned resident alerted police after seeing Falero-Delgado on the private property around 3 p.m. that day, walking through a line of cedar trees to the shoreline, where he was met by a small power boat with an overlarge engine.

Falero-Delgado collected three duffel bags that had been tossed onto shore by two unidentified men onboard before the bootleggers’ boat took off. Falero-Delgado was seen making several trips to load the bags into a car that was waiting for him...

Crime and Inflation Directly Linked to Liberals

Crime and Inflation Directly Linked to Liberals What Canadians are experiencing right now, 'doesn't just happen' Andrew Scheer told the House on March 19th. 'Inflation and crime are directly linked to this governments policy decisions.' Something police chiefs have echoed the last 8 years. Under Stephen Harper, Conservatives brought in tougher penalties for dangerous, repeat offenders, and crime went down. What did the Liberals do? They repealed those penalties for hardened criminals, and made bail much easier to get.

The Liberal Governments Agenda
"This Prime Minister, his ideological obsession with putting the rights of criminals ahead of the rights of law-abiding Canadians, decided to make bail easier to get. He actually mandated judges to err on the side of granting bail, even for those dangerous and repeat offenders... This government decided to put them back on the streets as early as possible. Well, no surprise... crime started ticking up and now we're in the midst of a crime wave that we haven't seen in over a generation, and it's all directly linked to this governments agenda..."

$50K reward offered for arrest of gun trafficker who breached bail conditions 3 times: Toronto police

A reward of up to $50,000 has been posted for information leading to the arrest of a convicted gun trafficker who police say has been at-large for two years after repeatedly breaching bail conditions and failing to show up for his sentencing hearing.

Police say Kamar Cunningham was apprehended in 2018 as part of Project Patton, a Toronto police investigation that led to the arrest of 75 suspects who were charged with approximately 1,000 gun, drug, and gang-related offences.

The $50,000 reward is being offered by Canada’s BOLO program.

“His involvement was in a criminal organization that was responsible for trafficking a significant amount of firearms over the U.S.-Canadian border,” Supt. Steve Watts, of the Toronto Police Service’s organized crime enforcement unit, told reporters at a news conference on Tuesday.

He has been released on bail three times. Each time he has violated his release conditions before being arrested and released on bail again. On May 4, 2021, Cunningham was sentenced in absentia to nine years in custody. Not surprisingly, he did not appear once again for his sentencing hearing.”

A Canada-wide warrant was subsequently issued for Cunningham’s arrest...

One man dead after double shooting at Mississauga plaza

One man is dead and another is in hospital following a double shooting overnight at a commercial plaza in Mississauga.

Peel Regional Police say they were called to an address in the area of Dixie Road and Queensway East around 2:43 a.m.

At least one of the victims was found outside, police said.

One man was subsequently pronounced dead, while another was transported to a trauma centre, but is expected to survive, Peel Regional Paramedic Services said.

"There are a number of local businesses in the area that will be included as the investigators canvass, as they look around for both surveillance footage as well as persons that might have been in the area at the time that this occurred," Const. Nikhil Chakravarthy told reporters at the scene.

He said it's too early to tell whether the shooting is connected to any of the businesses.

Yellow police tape cordoned off a large area where the shooting occurred Thursday and police vehicles remained at the scene.

"The victims were found a short distance apart from each other, which is a contributing factor as to why the scene is as large as it is, but it's going to be part of the investigation to determine why they were not located in the same spot," Chakravarthy said.

He couldn't immediately comment on whether the two victims knew each other, but he said investigators believe the two were shot by a suspect or suspects who fled the scene.

Chakravarthy said he couldn't comment on whether another shooting in the same area in July could be connected to the latest shooting...

Investigators from the Peel Regional Police Central Robbery Bureau have charged one individual following an armed home invasion that occurred in Brampton.

It is alleged that on November 25, 2023, four suspects attended a residence near Sandalwood Parkway and McLaughlin Road in Brampton. The suspects used force to enter the residence and once inside, made demands for money and property. A round was discharged by the suspects and one victim, home at the time, was struck with the firearm itself. The suspects obtained a quantity of property and fled the residence. One of the victims sustained minor physical injuries and required medical attention.

After an extensive investigation, investigators located and arrested the suspect at an address in Brampton. Search warrants were executed, and police seized a 9mm firearm with ammunition and a quantity of suspected illegal drugs.

Kashaun Grenier, a 21-year-old man from Brampton, has been charged with the following offences:

  • Robbery with a Firearm
  • Wearing a Disguise
  • Breach of Probation
  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm
  • Possession of a Loaded Prohibited Firearm

  • Possession of a Firearm Contrary to Prohibition Order
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking x3

At the time of his arrest, Kashaun Grenier was bound by a weapons prohibition stemming from previous convictions for firearms possession, with the specific condition not to possess any weapons.

As a result of the search warrant, Brenna Nash, a 26-year old woman from Brampton has also been charged with the following offences:

  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm
  • Possession of a Loaded Prohibited Firearm

LILLEY: Trudeau sends Ukraine billions in weapons, puts ban on Israel

We have sent billions of lethal military aid to Ukraine but are banning any military sales to Israel.

The Trudeau government has confirmed it won’t allow any military sales to Israel, that includes non-lethal military sales like boots, trucks or supplies. Foreign Affairs has been blocking military sales since early January, but in the wake of Monday’s vote on an NDP motion, Minister Melanie Joly has confirmed all sales are off.

The non-binding motion, which included a clause calling on the government to “Cease the further authorization and transfer of arms exports to Israel,” is now the policy of the Trudeau government.

Israel has never really bought much in the way of military supplies from Canada. In 2021, they bought just $26 million of military gear from Canadian firms, a far cry from the $1.7 billion Saudi Arabia spent. In the days after the Oct. 7 terror attacks by Israel, export permits jumped up to $28 million over several months before a pause was imposed on Jan. 8.

Now, that may seem like a lot, but it’s not, especially not when you compare it to our other democratic ally currently involved in a war, Ukraine.

Since the start of 2022, the Canadian government proudly boasts that we have sent $4 billion in military assistance to Ukraine. This isn’t material that Ukraine has bought from Canada, this is what we have sent them:

— 40,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition

— 10,000 rounds of 105mm tank shells

— 277 1,000-pound aircraft bombs

— Four M777 Howitzers

— 4,200 M72A5-C1 anti-tank rocket launchers

— $10 million worth of pistols, infantry rifles, sniper rifles and ammunition

— Eight Leopard 2 battle tanks

In addition to all of this, Canada has sent millions of rounds of ammunition for small arms, gas masks, night vision goggles, winter clothing, vehicles and more...
