Cons : long on guns, short on memory

ConMP Candice Hoeppner, Tony Bernardo, and Con MP Garry Breikreuz at the CSSA Blast in Calgary on April 2-3, 2010

CBC : NRA involved in gun registry debate :
Bernardo, a frequent guest on NRA chat shows updating U.S. gun owners on the fight to kill the Canadian registry, said the NRA was instrumental in helping him set up his Canadian lobby group, CILA, the lobbying arm of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA), and a mirror group of the Institute for Legislative Action, the NRA's lobbying arm.
Bernardo : "We have been working hand in hand with the NRA regarding international issues for the past three and a half years."
"The NRA’s Canadian Situation Infommercial ... was entirely set up by CILA. Its production cost was over $100,000 and was entirely paid for by the NRA."
CSSA media release, June 8, 2010 :
Team CSSA welcomes former Breitkreuz staffer as new Communications Director :
"While Brant was working with [Con MP] Garry Breitkreuz, he acted as liaison with the CSSA on a variety of gun-related issues, including the long-gun registry. The CSSA worked with the MP's office on Bill C-301 and later Bill C-391," explains Bernardo."
Manitoba Con MP Candice Hoeppner, sponsor of Bill C-391 to kill the long gun registry, Sept 14, 2010 :
"I’ve never spoken, e-mailed, had any contact. I don’t know anyone at the NRA."
Okey dokey then.

CSIS is looking into it...

"We're in fact a bit worried in a couple of provinces that we have an indication that there's some political figures who have developed quite an attachment to foreign countries," Fadden said.

Thanks, Luna. Just a bunch of connecting quotes ...

Anon : Works for the post above too. I often wonder what he meant.
Could apply to the Gateway Pacific project to transport the tarsands to China too.
