Gun Laws Don’t Need Tightening: Nunavut Leaders -CBC

Gun laws don’t need tightening: Nunavut leaders

Last Updated: Thursday, November 8, 2007
CBC News

The shooting death of an RCMP officer in Nunavut this week should not prompt tighter gun laws, leaders in the territory said Wednesday.

As Nunavut MLAs voiced their sadness over Const. Douglas Scott’s death, questions arose in the legislative assembly over gun safety in a territory where most households have at least one firearm, which is used to hunt seals, caribou and other wildlife.

Towards Self-Government – A Year After The Socio-Economic Forum, First Nations Present Their Own Political Platform

MONTREAL, Nov. 8 – A year after the First Nations Socio-Economic Forum held in Mashteuiatsh, positive and concrete actions on the part of the Quebec and Canadian governments continue to languish. Faced with these governments’ inertia, the Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador (AFNQL) announces today that it does not intend to sit still anymore. They have developed their own political platform that will generate a series of actions aiming at significantly altering relations with the provincial and federal governments. “We are done with waiting. From now on, we are going to take the actions required to implement conditions that will provide for a genuine and peaceful coexistence between First Nations and governments, which is a very, very far cry from the current inadmissible standstill,” declared the Chief of the AFNQL, Ghislain Picard.
