The head of Canada's gun lobby group is taking aim at a seat in Parliament.
Sheldon Clare is scheduled to announce his Cariboo-Prince George independent candidacy in October's federal election this morning. This would make Clare the riding's fourth candidate, joining Liberal Tracy Calogheros, Conservative Todd Doherty and Christian Heritage Party's Adam De Kroon.
Political wrangling is nothing new for Clare, who has served on the executive of the Canada's National Firearms Association (NFA) for a number of years, including five as president and CEO.
According to his biography on the College of New Caledonia web site, Clare has been a history and English instructor at the school since 1993.
Clare was also heavily involved with returning the Rocky Mountain Rangers to Prince George, serving as chair of the mayor's action committee on the militia in the early 2000s.
