Gun control debate
The Federal Conservative government has introduced new legislation that would abolish Canada's long gun registry.
Susan speaks with Conservative senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu about why he supports the move.
Gun control advocates, women's groups and opposition MPs are denouncing the move to scrap the registry.
Heidi Rathjen was a civil engineering student at École Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989, when Marc Lépine shot and killed 14 women at the school. She's since become a vocal advocate for gun control. She explains why she thinks the registry should be maintained.
