Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office is urging the RCMP in High River, Alta., to focus on “more important” tasks and to return the guns officers took from homes while searching for victims in the evacuated flood zone.
Harper’s office issued a statement Friday morning in quick reaction to the news that the RCMP had taken some firearms that they said weren’t stored properly in empty homes.
“If any firearms were taken, we expect they will be returned to their owners as soon as possible,” the statement said. “We believe the RCMP should focus on more important tasks such as protecting lives and private property.”
