MP Rick Casson Back in Ottawa

The long gun registry is the hot topic as Parliament resumes.

The fate of Canada's long-gun registry is just a couple of days away. Parliament resumed Monday and the registry faces abolition Wednesday when a private members bill from the Conservatives comes up for a vote.  Peter Stoffer (Nova Scotia) became the 6th NDP MP to say he'll now back the registry, something that frustrates Lethbridge MP, Rick Casson. During the last vote, he says there were 20 opposition MP's supporting the private members bill, and now all of them have changed their minds. He says the vote might be extremely close, and the bill could possibly fail. Casson says this session of Parliament will also focus on the economy, and says the Conservatives will be working on taking what he calls "the monopoly" away from the Canadian Wheat Board.
