This time it's 41,000 cops and doctors and nurses and survivors of gun violence.
Supporters of the long-registry have launched a new website. Here's a list of the groups:
The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police
The Canadian Police Association
The Canadian Association of Police Boards
The Canadian Public Health Association
The Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians
The Canadian Association for Adolescent Health
The Canadian Paediatric Society
The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists
The Trauma Association of Canada
The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions
The YWCA of Canada
The website is full of facty-logicky stuff -- for example, cops accessed the registry more than 4 million times last year at a cost to us of a buck each time.
Pretty reasonable, eh?
Oh. Did I say 'reasonable'? My bad.
If a program or policy is reasonable -- instead of say, idiotic, counter-productive, regressive, and insanely expensive -- that's enough for these ReformaTories to kill it.
I hate these people. Why can't we get rid of them?
h/t to Scott Tribe for the new website.
