Trudeau promised firearm-tracing regulations that would help police better trace guns used in crimes. The campaign pledge was not popular with the firearm community, which has long opposed the rules and "continues to advocate against their coming into force," according to an internal note to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, obtained by The Canadian Press last spring. Heidi Rathjen, co-ordinator of an organization comprised of survivors of the Polytechnique massacre and members of victims' families, criticized the government's working group on firearms. "The new committee ... has had only two meetings — one in March and one in May," she said. "When the minister (Goodale) was asked when the gun control bill would be tabled, one of his responses was the committee was 'hard at work.'" Rathjen said the delays are due to the "objections of firearm owners."
