Toronto City Council has voted 20 to 13 to support the Schlifer Clinic’s fight to save the gun registry, recognizing that “it supports the long-standing Toronto campaign to end violence against women.”

From the National Post:

Toronto city council has instructed its legal staff to seek leave for intervenor status in a court battle over the defunct federal long gun registry.

The Barbra Schlifer Clinic, a legal clinic that helps female victims of violence, is seeking an injunction to keep the registry running and preserve the data while it fights the government’s decision to kill it in court.
