Garry Breitkreuz Stop Or I'll Shoot

Garry Breitkreuz is best known for his opposition to the Canadian gun Registry and has been a long time activist for the rights of Canadians to bear arms. However, as with most of the new Conservative Party, he belongs to the anti-Christian Religious Right, with strong views on everything from Women’s Rights to Abortion, and brings those views fully loaded to the House of Commons.

October 11, 1993; he was quoted as saying "We should try to keep our mothers in the home and that is where the whole Reform platform hangs together."

Tuesday, March 31, 1998 (re-introduced September 26, 1998); motion M-33 to oppose the Human Rights initiative on corporal punishment with relation to children (spanking) “During Question Period in the House of Commons, Mr Breitkreuz defended the right of parents to decide how to discipline their children, and denounced attempts to use the Convention on the Rights of the Child against parental authority.” ( The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada - ‘Parental authority the real target of anti-spanking lobby’)

His rhetoric was interesting: “The motion M-33 that I'm bringing forth calls on Parliament to amend section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, to (a) recognize the fundamental right of individuals to pursue family life free from undue interference by the state; and (b) recognize the fundamental right, responsibility, and liberty of parents to direct the upbringing of their children and urge the legislative assemblies of the provinces to do likewise.” All Reformers use this term as implication that the Liberals and NDP are socialists.

December 15, 1999, he introduced a motion, M-360, which read "That, in the opinion of this House, the government should bring in legislation defining a "human being" as a human fetus or embryo, from the moment of conception, whether in the womb of the mother or not and whether conceived naturally or otherwise and making any and all consequential amendments required."

October 16, 2007 - Voted against Bill C-377 - Climate Change Accountability Act; tabled by: Jack Layton: An Act to ensure Canada assumes its responsibilities in preventing dangerous climate change.

This of course was not the first time he voted against any real action on the environment. The Reform Party, Garry included, were notorious for voting against any attempts to meet the goals of Kyoto. They then used this later to state that the Liberals failed to meet the goals of Kyoto.

Garry Breitkreuz was also one of the founders of the Saskatchewan Provincial Tory Party , that was involved in the biggest political scandal in Saskatchewan's history. (The party defrauded taxpayers of more than $ 837,000.00). Fellow Conservative Tom Lukiwski was Executive Director of the Party at the time.

Breitkreuz is the epitome of the 'new' Christian male movement 'Promise Keepers', with a guns and girls mentality. No control over the former and total control over the latter. The group's Canadian founder, David Sweet, Conservative MP for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale, Ontario; has said there was a reason why Jesus only chose men as Apostles, because women were natural followers (and men natural leaders obviously).

The group is mostly about profit, taking money out of struggling churches and placing it in the hands of 'for massive profit' organization, who together with their sister group, Real Women, are working to take the Women's Movement back to a time when we were the property of men.

However, while Breitkreuz is a vocal anti-abortionist, his real passion is guns, guns and more guns. Visit his website, and you'll see just how fanatical he is. From 1994 to the present he has made it his goal to scrap the Canadian Registry and arm a population.

If he put even a 10th of his time into fighting issues that matter most to Canadians, like climate change, the economy, poverty or unemployment; his government might actually accomplish something. Instead he has wasted more time and money flogging a dead horse (that he probably shot).
