Today’s commentary discusses an issue Public Safety Minister Bill Blair won’t touch with a proverbial ten foot poll – removing illegal guns from the hands of violent criminals.
Minister Blair is too busy spinning lies in Parliament to deal with the very real menaces who walk our streets with impunity despite being subject to a Firearm Prohibition Order.
Last month, three men wearing masks armed with guns and a knife, entered the bank in Drumbo demanding cash. Today four people have been arrested in relation to armed robberies in Toronto, Waterloo and Drumbo.
The Toronto Police Squad launched a joint investigation with the WRPS and the Oxford OPP and have now arrested four people.
18 year old Sharoze Raya of Kitchener, 18 year old Ismael Isse of Kitchener, 22 year old Imran Kayani of Brampton and a 17 year old from Kitchener who cannot be named because of his age are in police custody facing multiple charges.
Those charges include the following:
1. Three counts of Robbery with a Firearm
2. Two counts of Disguise with intent
3. Point Firearm
4. Two counts of Threaten Death
5. Weapons Dangerous
6. Two counts of Conspiracy To Commit an Indictable Offence
7. Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
8. Possession Of a Prohibited Firearm with Ammunition
9. Possession of a Firearm Obtained by Crime
10. Careless Use of a Firearm- Transport
11. Two counts of Possession Firearm Contrary to Prohibition Order
12. Five counts of Possession Of Property obtained by Crime under
13. Two counts of Fail to Comply with Release Order
While Minister Blair lies in the House of Commons, the awful truth is nothing in Bill C-21 addresses these offenders.
Nothing in Bill C-21 will keep illegal guns out of the hands of violent criminals like Sharoze Raya, Ismael Isse, Imran Kayani and the unidentified 17-year-old from Kitchener.
Bill C-22 also removes mandatory minimum sentences for many of their crimes as well, including armed robbery with a firearm.
When the Liberal government claims they are getting tough on crime, what they really mean is they’re getting tough on federally-licenced RCMP-vetted legal firearm owners while utterly ignoring criminal violence with illegal firearms.
Lies, lies and more Liberal lies. Must be an election coming…
Hi Christopher, In your lead email you mentioned minister Blair’s “stupidity”. I agree he comes across as belligerent and stupid most of the time, as does his boss, but this deliberate attack on lawful firearms owners while simultaneously introducing a deliberate reduction in laws designed to keep these thugs out of circulation is in tandem and planned to keep the citizenry fearful and under control. I also believe there are longer term reasons for this, that have little to do with an election, but also agree keeping themselves in power is part of the plan as well. These politicians have dark intentions for the future of Canada, and none of us are being given any choice in the direction they are driving the country, which is over a cliff into an ocean of global governance.
Side note, Christopher, I sent you a private email a couple of weeks back, please check your junk file,

Thanks Gerry. I’ll take a look for your prior message…
Short and sweet Chris. All exactly true. And further legislation making the country even safer for criminals is the only thing that will come from these “criminal’s best friends” who are supposed to protect the public from them. It has ever been thus since PET…..

Most of these charges will be dropped.
