Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper is dedicated to building a stronger, prouder, more prosperous Canada by delivering real results for everyday Canadian families.  He has spent his entire political career standing up and speaking out for Canadians who work hard, pay their taxes and play by the rules.

As Prime Minister, Stephen Harper has delivered real action on the priorities of all Canadian families including:

  • Passing the tough new political fundraising rules that take the big money, corporations and unions out of political party financing.
  • Reducing the GST from 7% to 6% and now, to 5%.
  • Providing $1,200 per year, per child under six, that parents can spend on their own child care priorities.
  • Giving Canadians tax credits for money spent on transit passes, textbooks and kids’ sports.
  • Strengthening Canada’s product safety laws, including the first ever federal mandatory recall law, and new rules for what can be called a “product of Canada”.
  • Passing tough new laws that will keep gun criminals and sexual predators behind bars.
  • Taking real action on the environment with Canada’s first ever mandatory greenhouse gas emission regulations.
  • Investing in new patrol ships, satellite surveillance, and arctic rangers to protect our sovereignty over Canada’s North.

Common Sense Firearms Licensing


Many constituents of Selkirk-Interlake share my enthusiasm for Canadian heritage activities like hunting and sport shooting.  I am proud our Conservative Government has made the Swiss Arms and CZ-858 rifles legal to use again, as they were before February 25 – the way it always should have been.

What’s more, our Conservative Government just announced our intention to table the Common Sense Firearms Licensing Act.  This legislation will streamline licensing and eliminate needless red tape for law-abiding gun owners, while keeping Canadians safe.  Among other things, this will merge the Possession Only and Possession and Acquisition Licenses, as well as creating a grace period so that individuals that inadvertently miss renewing their firearms license are not made into criminals overnight.  Our foremost priority is keeping the public safe, through common sense policies.

The NDP and the Liberals have promised to bring back the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry, should they get the chance. And Justin Trudeau's newest "star" MP, Adam Vaughan, told the Toronto Star he wants to ban the sale of guns and bullets, saying "emotional reasons" from gun enthusiasts are not enough to justify access to ammunition.

Our Conservative Government will always stand up for the rights of law-abiding hunters, farmers and sport shooters.  We believe that owning a firearm is a right, but a right that comes with responsibilities.  That is why we are pursuing common sense firearms policies that keep Canadians safe, without needless red tape for law-abiding firearms owners.
