Clashes in the Commons with Tories and AB says no to Alberta again

Toronto Sun Columnist Brian Lilley tells BCN’s Jeannette Rocher, that Alberta’s Justice Minister Tyler Shandro has every right to not want the province’s RCMP to be used in the federal gun buyback program. Ottawa is commissioning a firearms ban which includes a buyback program and wants to use RCMP to help them carry it out. But Lilley says the RCMP is not a national police force, it’s a provincial one.
Plus, clashes in the commons over a phrase the conservatives are using, and more talk of a booze tax.
