‘If we can find a way to move forward’

In the wake of Jack Layton’s announcement yesterday, Charlie Angus, one of the dozen NDP MPs whose votes will decide the fate of the gun registry, doesn’t seem entirely committed to voting for C-391 on third reading. But Jim Maloway, who has repeated his intention to vote for C-391, is unmoved.

Regardless, said Maloway, he still plans to vote with Hoeppner. “Nothing there changes my view on the long-gun registry,” said Maloway.

He also said Layton’s proposal is too little too late. “This bill just went through committee last spring,” said Maloway. “Where were all these amendments at the committee?”
