Even NDP rural MP's understood the importance of getting rid of the long gun registry, only the Liberals were out of tune and one NDP'er.
Linda Duncan, MP for Edmonton Strathcona voted against the bill. How out of touch is this MP? She has no clue what her constituents want or she just blindly ignores what they want, I'm not sure which. Her opponent can make real hay out of her vote to support the gun registry. Edmonton might be growing into a big city, but what she fails to realize is that a lot of us like hunting and the deer meat supports a lot of families, who might otherwise go without.
It appears she is already nervous, so her vote against the gun registry is not going to help her here in Edmonton.
Linda Duncan was only elected because the Liberals and NDP joined forces to vote for her, even if they try the same stunt next election, the Conservatives will out vote both parties.
Linda Duncan, out of touch with 40% of her riding, will not ride again. One less pork barrel pension to be concerned about, she already has a great pension from the U of A. One is enough. Let the lady walk into the sunset next election, she is a do nothing greenie, in the land of individual's who respect independence, and free will. With her vote against all our farmers, she has sealed her own fate. So be it.
