2021 Federal Election
Published Date: 2021-09-14 10:39:00

As you are aware another Federal Election is upon us. Although I am president of the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club I am not here today to tell you how to vote or to spread information or potential misinformation for or against any political party or candidate. Members of our club may have many reasons to choose one candidate over another in addition to the obvious important issue of firearms rights. However I absolutely encourage every single one of our 1100 members to get out and vote on Election Day. In saying that, 1100 members is not a terribly large number of votes, so next I encourage you to speak to as many friends, family, co-workers and the like and encourage them to vote as well. There is power in numbers and the more voters that get out to the polls the better!

 

Canada’s National Firearms Association has some great information on their website regarding the election and firearms rights. Their information is very much up to date regarding the main political parties current policies on firearms ownership. https://nfa.ca

The Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights has also been supported by the SJRGC with donations and many of our members have joined the CCFR. Check out what they are having to say about the election on their website: https://firearmrights.ca

Couple more great websites for Firearms Rights and Advocacy:

Justice For Gun Owners

Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters

 

Not sure who is running in your district? Check out the Elections Canada website for information on parties and candidates running in your area You can quickly and easily search by postal code right from the main page. I encourage you to speak to the candidates and ask them questions you need to make your decision on Election Day. As president I can speak on behalf of members, however I am still one voice. There is a lot more power in 1100 individual voices making their concerns heard to the candidates. https://electionscanada.ca

If you don't have time to read the full platform for each political party, here is a great article we found that highlights and compares each party's stance on a number of issues including firearms rights and ownership: Compare the Party Platforms

Finally here are links to each of the federal parties running candidates in Newfoundland. Their pages are a great source of up to date information regarding each party’s platform for this election.

 

Conservative Party of Canada

 

Liberal Party of Canada

 

Canada's NDP

 

People's Party of Canada

 

Green Party of Canada
