Everyone deserves to feel safe. So, one of the first steps we would take as
a New Democratic government would be to allow any municipality that chooses to ban handguns,
the right to do so. But know that’s not nearly enough. If we want to build a safer community, we’ve
got to tackle the root cause of violence. And it’s complex but we know we’ve got
to tackle poverty. We’ve got to make sure young people see
a bright future for themselves and their families. We’ve got to make sure that people have
access to good jobs, the health care they need, so we can build a bright future. That’s how we tackle the root cause of violence.
