South Asian Post;8/26/2010, p22
The author reflects on the efforts of the Conservative Party of Canada to expel Chief Superintendent Marty Cheliak as director general of the Canadian Firearms Program. He is critical on the motive of the political party on its action since Cheliak showed significant contributions on the program's efficiency. He argues that the Conservatives wanted him out of the program because he could be a hindrance on their plan to remove the gun registry scheme in the county.
