11/06/2019 – Brampton, ON – Ms. Ruby Sahota, Member of Parliament for Brampton North, resides in Brampton with her young family. Just like other mothers, she is concerned about the increase in crime – especially gun and gang violence, that comes with warmer weather. Last week, MP Sahota, a member of the House of Common’s Standing Committee on Public
Safety and National Security, asked the Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, how Peel Regional Police could access an investment of $65 million made to combat illegal guns and gangs in Ontario by the Federal Liberal Government. Minister Blair, a former Toronto Police Chief, clarified that although the funding to fight illegal guns and gang is coming from the federal government, it is in the hands of the Ontario Provincial government to decide when and where to invest this money. “It’s interesting that the Conservatives like to pretend like they are hard on crime, but that is far from the truth. The Provincial Conservatives have only spent $11 million of the available $65 million from the Federal Liberal government even though communities like Brampton are desperate for the funding as crime is increasing year after year,” said MP Sahota. “Despite claiming to be ‘tough on crime’, the Federal Conservatives have promised to eliminate our new common-sense gun laws without any common-sense crime prevention strategies to replace it.”
