Premier Jason Kenney is going to appoint a Chief Firearms Officer accountable to Albertans.
As part of the change, the Alberta Firearms Advisory Committee seeks input from Alberta gun owners on how to best assert provincial authority on firearms issues.
The Alberta Firearms Advisory Committee, chaired by Brooks-Medicine Hat MLA, Michaela Glasgo, invites you to share your thoughts on the recently announced Government of Canada changes to firearms ownership.
This survey is part of the process to develop recommendations on how the province of Alberta can better assert itself in areas of provincial jurisdiction, while still respecting the long history of responsible firearms ownership by law-abiding Albertans.
It should take you 10 – 15 minutes to complete this survey. All responses are anonymous.
This information is being collected under section 33 (c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and will be protected under the provisions of the Act.
If you have any questions about the survey, please email JSG.ProvFirearmsAdvisorypub@gov.ab.ca.

The Alberta Firearms Advisory Committee will:
- hear concerns about the federal government’s firearms legislation from stakeholders in Alberta
- provide recommendations on how provincial policies can best support law-abiding gun owners while keeping Albertans safe
The committee will submit their final report to the minister of Justice and Solicitor General in anticipation of further changes to federal firearms legislation.

I tried to get the attention of our Forests and Wildlife Recreation Minister , Hon D. Donaldson , BC, to join with Ont., Alberta, Sask. in a show of resistance to the Federal Public Safety Ministers recent attacks on us. I also tried in vain several times with our MP Gord Johns NDP to renounce the C-71 and OIC [ c-71 makes it impossible for firearms owning people to seek doctor and employer approved stress and depression relief help, including health care workers that are being hammered by pandemic work-related issues. Use those mental health programs and we face loosing our license and subsequent gun seizures].
Donaldson retired as I am told, and I never got an intelligent response from his secretary.
I think that organized Clubs, and BCWF , Ducks unlimited,The Nature Trust, other hunting friendly groups and individuals should press the new NDP cabinet to recognize our rights and contributions to the outdoor and conservation values we bring.
Also wonder why, correct me if I am wrong, portions of Lottery proceeds that go to community groups aren’t including Fish and Game club projects and conservation programs and youth programs? 40 % of captured lottery profits go to other community groups, that’s quite a slice of pie that should be shared with us.

I wouldn’t place much value in having a provincially-appointed CFO; it’s just more political sleight of hand. This move by Moe and Kenney will earn both of them some brownie points with gun owners (I’m an Albertan gun owner) and it might expedite PAL, RPAL, ATT and firearm transfer processing times for Albertans or Saskatchewanians. But an Alberta CFO or a Saskatchewan CFO will still be hog-tied by the Canadian Firearms Program, the Canadian Criminal Code and whatever covert, underhanded, deceitful crap is thrown at gun owners from Kettlin’ Bill’s office.
With few exceptions, politicians of every political stripe in all three levels of government around the globe want the same thing, namely, civilian disarmament. CPC and PPC are perceived to be gun owner friendly but, in my view, they are the “leisurely, scenic with glamping” route to civilian disarmament whereas the NDP and LPC are the “express lane with no stops” route. NDP, and now the LPC, are outright socialists and we all know the degree of their contempt for firearms in hands of the peasantry. All parties are globalists. They have to be if they are to remain relevant to the global socialist agenda (some call it UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development).
Gun control legislators and advocates are as oblivious to natural resource conservation as they are to preservation of traditions, heritage, culture, recreation and socio-economic benefits from citizens legally buying, selling and using firearms. Gun control is a one-sided debate under the dictates of the socialist UN.
As for politicians recognizing your rights, well … according to them, if those rights involve firearms, then you have no rights. They strip you of those rights and bestow upon you privileges with an expiry date, then threaten you with incarceration and/or theft of your property if you dare defy them.
Gun Control is a global religious cult which practices human sacrifice at the alter of Victimhood. It’s far older and WAY more popular than Climaggedon or even Scientology!

any idea if the Alta. Gov. will release the results of this survey to the public in a summarized form?
I remember in about June after the May 2020 OIC a ‘ nonpartisan researcher for a Ontarian University’ had put out a detailed survey and questionnaire for gun owners. I never saw a public release for that, are you aware of that survey or was it a pseudo thing done by a Liberal Troll and not approved by the Firearms community?
Christopher di Armani says
No, Peter, I don’t know if they’ll release the info. And yes, I am aware of the Ontario researcher you referenced. If memory served the usual suspects crapped all over him for daring to ask honest questions. It was a genuine survey and was promoted by the CSSA to assist the researcher, but that’s all I know about it.

thanks Chris , I was afraid that by participating in that survey I had inadvertently undermined our groups. Still, what guarantees are there that other[ unfriendly] university departments can’t get their hands on this survey? As I recall both dishonorable Anne McLellan and Allan Rock sit or lecture in various Canadian universities. Wendy Cukier represents about 200 un-named individuals and organizations that may have similar access or hacking abilities.They may be able to access this data?
In Health Care there are serious penalties for any health care professional that accesses or violates patient information data that isn’t directly related to their patient/resident caseload.
Do universities have similar standards and policies?
I have this belief in recent years that if I can think it, others are doing it. Nothing is beyond the realm of comprehension and potential action in this era of electronic abilities and partisan biases. I hope that others here reading these past observations of mine and parallel examples in career and life experiences, take note of the possibilities that wait in ambush upon us.

Has anyone noticed how closely the UN agenda aligns with that of the Chinese communist party?
