Quebec says it will proceed with its own gun registry after a Supreme Court decision that paves the way for Ottawa to destroy data coveted by the province. Public Security Minister Lise Theriault (Leez TAIR'-ee-oh) told reporters in Quebec City the government cannot accept the high court ruling. She said the fact the three Quebec justices were in the minority reflects the views of people in the province. Theriault estimates that it will cost the province 30-million-dollars to set up it own registry although that's only a preliminary figure. But the minister defends the decision to proceed, saying it's all about the safety of the public and police. (The Quebec public security minister is talking about the province setting up its own registry within months, noting that it has the support of all members of the national assembly.)
