Bill C-21 Update

  1. Following the news Friday morning that the federal government had withdrawn amendments G4 and G46 in firearms Bill C-21, OFAH Manager of Policy Mark Ryckman spoke with Ontario OUT of DOORS Magazine.

“We’re pleased that the Liberal government has recognized the negative implications of the proposed amendments and have withdrawn them from consideration. The changes would have impacted untold numbers of firearms that are widely used for hunting in Canada,” Ryckman told OOD’s Steve Galea. “The Standing Committee will now undertake broader consultation with gun owners, including Indigenous communities – something they should have done a while ago.”
