Canadian Tories to let Border Guards Have Guns
"It's simply a practical matter of how soon these officers can be trained and the firearms issued to them," said Vic Toews, the Conservative MP who served as justice critic in Opposition.
"That's our commitment and I trust our minister will do exactly that."
Toews said in an interview Wednesday he was bothered by news that about 20 Canadian border guards left their posts as the gunmen approached the border. . . .
