NDP movement on gun registry?

Le Devoir has some details, they're behind the subscriber wall though:
Le Nouveau Parti démocratique (NPD) tente de trouver un moyen de sauver le registre des armes à feu sans nuire à ses élus ruraux. Le chef Jack Layton tente de déterminer lesquels de ses 12 députés récalcitrants pourraient rentrer dans le rang sans compromettre leur réélection.
Why do they put such a big story behind the wall? Ridiculous.

Anyway, this could be why the Conservatives are starting to talk up the vote not coming forward before the summer break on June 23rd (see updated post from yesterday). Don't know, however, if they can prevent that or not. What a big defeat it would be for them though. You know, even though it's just your average private member's bill.
