Michelle definitely gets it

Wish we had more politicians like Michelle who have an open mind to look at the overall issue, instead of just having "knee jerk" reactions.

One smart lady. Maybe we should have an automobile ban in the city also.
I'm betting more people die from cars every year than guns.

Are you advocating registering/licensing/insuring firearms similar to how vehicles are regulated?

NO, I'm saying banning inanimate objects is bloody STUPID!!
If you are going to do that do the one that kills the most.

Sounds like she is approaching this with decent logic. I definitely appreciate hearing someone in government speaking the truth and not bending to those that profile all firearms owners as the scourge of the earth. Truth is, bad people will do bad things no matter what laws are in place. Punishing the innocent for crimes not yet committed, and statistically won't be committed, is not the answer.

Not just this issue, but the lady has Guts. Kinda gets her in hot water at times, which is a good thing.

She is usually 99% on top of her game, definitely one of the partyís shining stars. However I am disappointed she chose to attack Bernier for his recent comments. Berniers comments were bang on. The people who are triggered by the common sense used by Bernier are never going to vote CPC so we donít need to pander to them just because they experienced a trigger event.
Scheer has zero policy and is turning into a real disappointment. He needs to step it up big time.

Default Michelle for PM

I am a fan of her outspoken ways and wish that she was the PC leader. I still am not a fan of Scheer
