Trudeau speaks on Canada's 1st National Day Against Gun Violence | LIVE

CA, 01 Jun 2023
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to speak in Toronto on Thursday, as the federal government proclaimed a National Day Against Gun Violence to be held annually on the first Friday of June.

The prime minister will be joined by Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino and representatives of the Toronto Raptors basketball team to discuss the plans. The government says the goal of the national day is to raise awareness and foster a national discussion about the causes and effects of gun violence.

It comes as the Senate reviews a government bill that would cement restrictions on handguns, increase penalties for firearm trafficking, try to curb homemade ghost guns and ban assault-style firearms.

The Conservatives opposed the bill in the House of Commons, saying it penalizes law-abiding firearm owners instead of tackling gun crime.
