7 Firearms Turned In During Amnesty Program In Northern Manitoba

Around 700 firearms and over 22,000 rounds of ammunition were collected by law enforcement during the Manitoba Association of Chiefs of Police Gun Amnesty Program, though only seven came from the north.


The program, which ran through the month of June, allowed Manitobans to turn in any firearms or ammunition to police no questions asked, with most of what was collected destined to be destroyed.


There were no weapons turned in here in Thompson during the program, though three were collected in The Pas, two in Flin Flon and one each in Cranberry Portage and Churchill.


 Heather Stefanson, who was the Minister of Justice at the time, said that the Province takes the safety of families and communities very seriously, adding that the program was a great success.
