Long gun registry awaits final reading

There could be more pressure on Members of Parliament from Northwestern Ontario next month. A bill to abolish the federal long gun registry could go for third and final reading before the Christmas break. Kenora M.P. Greg Rickford says he's not happy how two NDP members of Parliament from Thunder Bay have been treated on the issue. Rickford feels John Rafferty and Bruce Hyer should be allowed to vote the way they want, without being disciplined by their party.

The man has been charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm, failing to remain and failing to stop. The passenger of the vehicle has been taken to Thunder Bay Hospital.
