NFA Endorsed CPC National Council candidates

The 2021 Conservative National Convention will be taking place this week online from March 18 to 20 2021. Over 5,500 convention delegates from across Canada will meet virtually to discuss policies and vote for a new National Council. The CPC National Council is responsible for overseeing the management of all party affairs except for the raising and spending of party funds, which is overseen by the Conservative Fund. The membership of the National Council and Conservative Fund are volunteer positions.

Given that there will likely be a federal election called sometime this year, and stricter gun controls will be a major Liberal election plank, it is very important to embattled law abiding Canadian firearms owners that are also CPC members to have pro-gun rights councillors representing them on National Council.

Canada’s National Firearms Association is always deeply involved with every CPC Policy Convention and routinely engages in the process to promote pro-gun policies and support aspiring councillor candidates that openly help advance the cause of gun rights in Canada.

This 2021 Virtual Conservative Policy Convention is no different. The NFA has once again worked hard to develop and move firearms policies to the convention and has interviewed most of the CPC National councillor candidates to assess their views on gun rights in Canada.

Only those candidates deemed most ardent and knowledgeable supporters of law-abiding Canadian firearms owners were formally endorsed. NFA endorsed National Council candidates are marked * and cited below to assist CPC ‘gunny’ convention delegates cast an informed vote.
