The CCFR is thrilled to announce to it's members that Michelle will be attending the 2018 CCFR AGM in beautiful Gatineau, Quebec as a special guest, speaker and member. Michelle, a Calgary native and MP since 2011 completed her RPAL certification recently and was excited for her first firearms purchase.
