Canadian gun owners have been under attack by the Liberal government since the 2015 election. Bill Blair’s reaction to a horrific tragedy in Nova Scotia committed by a madman with a known criminal past and illicit firearms was to punish legal, RCMP vetted gun owners with a mass gun ban and confiscation plan, all during a global pandemic and a suspended parliament.
The CCFR is taking the fight to save your guns all the way to the Supreme Court, if need be. We will make sure your voice is heard in Ottawa and beyond.
BUT … you need to also be seen.
We are “marching on Ottawa” on Saturday, September 12, 2020 @ 1:00pmEST – The Integrity March. We are going to the capital of Canada, where the laws are made and the lawmakers are, to demand integrity from our politicians and in the decisions they make. Canadian gun owners want a safer Canada too – and we demand credible work on crime and violence.
Will you join us?
We’re going to start right in front of centre block on Parliament Hill where we’ll hear from a few speakers, then we’ll march our way through Ottawa, led by a team of bagpipes and drums. We’ll have lots of signs, flags and banners on hand for you as you exercise your right to be heard and seen. Rod, Tracey and the whole CCFR crew will be on hand, joined by thousands of concerned Canadians.
It’s your Right in Canada.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly. We are encouraging our members to exercise your fundamental right of assembly peacefully and cooperate with the direction of the CCFR organizers and accompanying security.
Covid got you worried?
The CCFR takes your health & safety seriously. Canada is currently in the midst of a pandemic. Mass gatherings, such as a demonstration, technically go against the CDC’s recommendation to continue social distancing, and we want to avoid an increase in any new cases and encourage all participants to take as many precautions as possible. Recent similar events did not result in a surge in cases and we are confident we can be heard, safely. This event is strictly an outdoor activity.
CCFR will have masks on hand for those that find it difficult to social distance.
The CCFR also encourages the use of hand sanitizer and washing your hands as much as possible. We’ll have lots of sanitizer on site to keep everyone’s hands clean.
Lastly, if you are feeling sick or have a fever, do not attend. You will reduce the risk for everyone by staying home.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
Accommodations are available.
