CFUW Request Stronger Gun Control

May 11, 2018 - The lack of control over guns endangers human life. Guns facilitate violence and increase the vulnerability of women and children living in abusive situations to serious physical and psychological harm and to homicide.
CFUW wrote to Minister Goodale, Minister Monsef and several Members of Parliament to ask for strong provision in Bill C-71. Clubs across the country are also getting involved in this serious public safety issue and writing to their own elected officials. For more information contact cfuwadvocacy@rogers.com
