‘Leave hunters alone’: Conservative MPs attack Mendicino over proposed gun safety bill

In a heated exchange during question period in the House of Commons on Monday, Conservative MPs Raquel Dancho and Rob Moore grilled the Liberals on firearms legislation Bill C-21 and its amendments, referencing a recent comment by Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price. Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino defended the bill, saying it only targets AR-15-style rifles. “It seems the only person in this chamber that does not understand this bill is the minister himself,” Moore responded. “Carey Price, NHL hockey goalie, understands it bans hunting rifles… Leave hunters alone.”
