66% believe gun control laws should be more strict in Canada: poll
A new survey by Leger Marketing has examined the issue of gun control in Canada and the United States. 38% of the 678 Canadian homicides in 2019 were gun-related; the rate of gun deaths in the U.S. is 8 times higher than that of Canada. Recently introduced federal gun control legislation, Bill C-21, includes a voluntary buy-back program for assault weapons that were prohibited in May 2020.

According to the poll results, 66% of Canadians believe gun control should be tighter in their country. Conversely, a lower percentage of Americans feel the same way (60%).
