NDP Leadership Hopeful Peggy Nash Headed to Thunder Bay

NDP Leadership RaceTHUNDER BAY – Updated – Last week, Thunder Bay Superior MP Bruce Hyer shared how NDP leadership candidate Paul Dewar was headed to Thunder Bay. On January 30th, Peggy Nash is headed to Thunder Bay. Informed sources have confirmed to NetNewsledger.com that one of Nash’s campaign planks in her leadership campaign would be the restoration from scratch of the federal long gun registry.

On December 6th, 2011 the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, Nash said, “It’s shameful that while Quebecers and Canadians across the country are remembering the victims of violence against women, Stephen Harper is working to dismantle the gun registry.”

“Rather than trying to fix the registry to make sure legitimate concerns are addressed while keeping our communities safe, Stephen Harper is simply trying to divide Canadians. As leader of the NDP, I will work to restore the registry in a way that makes sure that it works for all Canadians,” continued Nash.

On Monday, January 30, 2012 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Tony & Adam’s Restaurant, 45 South Court Street in Thunder Bay, NDP Leadership candidate Peggy Nash, MP (Parkdale-High Park) is hosting a Pub Night for NDP members and supporters.

Both Thunder Bay area MPs have repeatedly voted against the long gun registry, and currently are being sanctioned by the New Democrats over their vote keeping their promise to constituents to vote to get rid of the long gun registry.
