"It's like a cult that is led by organizations of police chiefs who pretend the registry helps them do their jobs. They should be ashamed."
The police chiefs association supports retention of the gun registry. But Breitkreuz was quoted as calling both the chiefs and the Coalition for Gun Control "politically motivated lobby groups that derive financial support from pro-registry sources."
"Their positions are tainted and suspect in my view because their endorsement can be bought."
Here is some background on the cult leadership:
CHIEF WILLIAM BLAIR, O.O.M.
Chief Blair started his 30-plus year policing career as a beat officer in downtown Toronto, and continued with assignments in drug enforcement, organized crime units, and major criminal investigations. Promoted to the senior ranks of the Service, his postings included Divisional Commander, Community Policing Programs, and Detective Operations, responsible for all specialized investigative units including the Homicide Squad, Hold-Up Squad, Sex Crimes Unit, Fraud Squad, Forensic Identifications Services, Intelligence Services, and Organized Crime Enforcement, including the Guns and Gangs Unit, and the Repeat Offender Program.
In recognition of his many contributions to the policing profession Chief Blair was named an Officer of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces in 2007. He is also a member of the Most Venerable Order of St. John and has been awarded the Police Exemplary Service Medal with Thirty Year Bar.
How dare this character speak for law enforcement, clearly a communist infiltrator with an agenda.
This rogue cop received the Order of Merit, which apparently included a "blood letting".
Another tree hugger lobbyist, who knows nothing about the rigors of police work:
Deputy Director General Steven Chabot was born in Lachute, Quebec, and began his career in policing in 1977. As a police officer he has worked as a patrolman, investigator, first-level manager in the realm of patrols and investigations, and then as a senior manager in the same fields.
It goes on and on, but the point being these are the people uniquely positioned to speak on matters of usefulness and effectiveness, not some turnip truck MP with an attitude.
Would it possible, just this once, if the Conservatives didn't revert to shouting down their opposition, not to mention WITHHOLDING reports which don't jive with their stated opinion. There is something entirely wrong, and highly suspect, with any position that always reverts to secrecy and throwing anybody and everybody under the bus, that dissents.
