Canada refused to sign on to arms treaty.
Sighting the uncertainty of whether or not the treaty would effect hunters, Canada refused to sign the arms treaty set forth and signed by some 90 countries including the US, signed by Kerry.


UN Arms Trade Treaty: Canada Refuses To Join 90 Nations In Signing
His office has said the government is still trying to determine whether the treaty would affect lawful recreational firearms owners in Canada.

"We said we would do consultations before we made a decision on that," Baird said Wednesday when asked why Canada has yet to sign the treaty.

Baird gets it, no point in signing something to appease a mob of leftist bitches. Harper killed the gun registry because the majority wanted it gone.

Re: Canada refused to sign on to arms treaty.
OTTAWA - The Harper government faced sharp criticism Wednesday for its continued refusal to sign a landmark treaty to regulate the global arms trade.

A group of non-governmental agencies, called the Control Arms Coalition, said it was frustrated and disappointed that the government did not follow the United States and more than 90 other countries in signing the Arms Trade Treaty.

As a Canadian, I'm glad our government has not signed.
Reading through some of the comments made me shake my head though.
Too many Canadians have been taught that guns have no place here.

Have not read it.
Was planning on reading it tonight.
Not light reading, I am going to presume.

Problem is from what I have read, is there are too many loose ends to the treaty that can be interpreted in different ways.

It's the interpretation portion not being clear that prevented Canada from signing.

You know the executive branch of the U.S. government is completely out of step with America when Canada has more concern about protecting it's gun rights than we do.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

I figure it's payback for not being voted to the UN council.
Harper is pissed by the snub and all those registering complaints against us regarding human rights from countries with some of the worst human right violations. We are supposed to be so politically correct, right.

Either that or Harpers crew all are gun owners not willing to give up their stash.

Fine, but with all the gun manufacturers being outside of Canada, wouldn't that make importing here for purchase a little difficult?

Getting a Remington in from the U.S. would be an international transfer.

Re: Canada refused to sign on to arms treaty.
Harper's constituency is in Alberta, no way he would do anything that would limit gun ownership out there. Considering the majority of Canada's land mass is non-urban, there's no way we are going to get involved with any treaties that could jeopardize the ability to have rifles or other guns.

hmm Reviewing and analyzing an International treaty
to see if it jives with that sovereign nations
own legislative code before signing on.

Re: Canada refused to sign on to arms treaty.
LOL - Now lets see.

Hillary steped down as Secretary of state because she will run for prez in 2016 and does not want to sign the UN treaty or get further involved in Obamas shenanigans because it would destroy any chance of election.

So they bring Kerry as the sacrificial facelift lamb who is BTW starting to look like an alien in a plastic suit to push the treaty through.

Hillary gets elected in 2016 and declares that the UN treaty has been misinterpreted and now prohibits all gun sales within the USA and starts the gun registration process and outlaws assault weapons and semi auto pistols.

In the mean time she also declares Obamacare was a failure but she will come to the rescue with single payer fully socialized medical care which was the plan all along.
