MP Ready for Fall

Bruce Grey | by Bayshore News Staff  

MP Larry Miller plans to kill federal gun registry, stop bulk water sales.

Former Grey County Warden Larry Miller brought greetings from Ottawa to Tuesday's meeting of county council.
 
Miller -- who was re-elected in May to another term as MP for Bruce Grey Owen Sound -- talked to Council about his and the government's plans once Parliament resumes in the fall.
 
Miller says the end of the long gun registry is in sight, something that Conservatives have said for years they would like to accomplish.

Miller says now that they have a majority government, they will be able to do it.
 
It didn't happen right after the election because the Conservatives had a number of other priorities they had to deal with first, such as the federal budget.
 
Miller says he also intends to table a private member's bill that, if passed, would outlaw bulk water sales from Canada.
 
It's an issue that's been of importance to him since he was first elected to the House of Commons in 2004, and Miller hopes to table the ball in the fall with the expectation that it will be debated early next year.
 
But he also says that if his bill isn't debated by the end of the next session of Parliament, the government feels strongly enough about the issue that he expects it would eventually become a government bill and a law anyway.
