#47 INTERVIEW – Brian Sauvé, President of the National Police Federation

We've got an important interview for you. Brian Sauvé is the president of the National Police Federation and that's the union that represents the RCMP. We asked him to join us because we have questions about the federal policy to ban and buy back hundreds of guns and types of guns, and the NPF has publicly come out in opposition to that policy. Our Vice President of Communications, Todd MacKay, spoke with Sauvé. You can sign the PETITION calling on the federal government to scrap the buyback here: https://www.taxpayer.com/petitions/scrap-the-gun-ban-and-buy-back Like this show? Subscribe and give us 5-stars!
