« The Green Party of Quebec says police on patrol have proven they cannot responsibly handle firearms, so they should be stripped of their weapons.
The party is not calling for a total ban on firearms among police officers, but says they should be much more restricted than they are now, where every officer is armed.
« We’re not saying that there should be no firearms on any police officers ever. It’s just that the frontline patrol officers doing the patrol work should not necessarily be armed, » said Green Party leader Alex Tyrrell. “We think that we could have a much better approach to community policing if not all police officers were armed.” »
