Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to imply that y'all up there aren't willing to fight for your rights (do you even have rights guaranteed to you? I'm not very familiar with your system of government). I hope like heck you win your fight, along with the British, Australians and all the other so-called free countries out there with opressive socialist governments. I just wanted to emphasize how important it is for the conservative voters to form a cohesive base and run the libbies out of office. Then your gun registration problems will almost certainly go away, along with the rest of your countries worthless socialist programs. The best we here in the U.S. can do for you is not frequent your country to hunt and fish, and to let the Canadian gov't know that THEIR silly laws and tax policies are what motivates our decision not to come.

Last year my dad, brother and I were considering taking two weeks and going up into Canada to fish. We were planning to rent a seaplane to fly us up to the more remote northern lakes and camping out there, but decided against it because of the unrealistic fees and hassles at the border. My dad took a similar trip to Canada fishing 20 or so years ago and brought back a cooler full of fish. Now they only let you take three fish. Not worth the expense of the trip when I can drive to Minnesota.

I've wanted all my life to hunt moose in Canada. But like I said, my guns won't get near the Canadian border because I like them and want to keep them and don't need the Canadian gov't taxing me for them.

Godd luck and best wishes,

Mike

As otis said the problem is ours to fix and that requires voting out the liberals.Anyone that votes liberal in the federal election has little to complain about as they are causing our problems.Unless the liberals lose the next election things will get even worse.

Goodguy, I don't have to wait for it to fail in Canada, it's failed in England and in Australia....and everywhere it's been imposed.....why can't others see it!!

All of life is a matter of lines drawn in the sand and the friendly allowance of trespass and transgression. Yet we seem to remember the point of no return....there is a point that we're willing to fight for......

I'm no Thomas Jefferson, no Samuel Adams, but I am a man that feels the same about freedoms as they did.....

It's not the case that some of their blood runs in my veins.....it's that some of their love runs in my heart, and I'm a very lucky guy because there's a lot of folks south of the border that have the same love in their hearts.

May god bless our Canadian friends......

With all due respect...you got it backwards. It did not fail in Australia and it did not fail in England - it succeeded. And the Liberals and the anti's are rejoicing in their success. They don't care that it's not reducing crime. Reducing crime was only the platform and argument they used. What they really wanted was to disarm the masses and they succeeded big time just as Hitler did.

For those Canadians or anyone else for that matter who might think the one and only solution to our problem is voting out the Liberals is dreaming in Technicolor. It may come as a surprise to some but not all Conservatives regardless which right wing party they may affiliate with support gun ownership. In fact many are anti gun & anti hunting. In any event there will be no election for at least a year. If the Liberals by then have managed to shore up this registry which is presently teetering, even if we are fortunate enough to oust the Liberals, it will be difficult if not impossible for a new government to scrap the registry even though they presently say they would. First of all there will be many other possibly more important matters to also deal with. Secondly if the registry becomes entrenched scrapping it would be no easy matter. There is the legislation which would need to be re-written. The infrastructure would need to be dismantled including all the processes, offices, computer systems and files, employees, management structure and so on and they would still have the antis' lobby to deal with. So that's why I say it needs to be pushed over now while it is teetering not after the Liberals have had a chance to shore it up.

In any event I feel I'm beating a dead horse here. Obviously you see it differently than I do and no amount of reasoning is apparently going to make any difference. Remember all I ever asked for was a few phone calls to add some more pressure to our fractured registry to help it crumble and fall.

This will be my last post on this thread and I'll see you all down the road on the less serious issues like maybe; "Which Rifle Should I Buy?" or "Which Caliber is Best in a Cross Wind". Regards gg.
