Bill C-19 Controversy

On February 7, 2012, during a Parliamentary Debate about Bill C-19, Miller stirred controversy after comparing the long-gun registry to Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Regime quoting former Liberal Minister Allan Rock: "I came to Ottawa last year with the firm belief that the only people in Canada who should have firearms are police officers and the military." Miller added afterwards: "Sound familiar? Adolf Hitler. 1939". Later on, he quoted former Liberal Senator Sharon Carstairs who've said "the registering of hunting rifles is the first step in the social re-engineering of Canadians" which Miller added "that is what Adolf Hitler tried to do in the 1930s". Miller later retracted his statements.

Controversial comments regarding immigrants

On March 16, 2015, while appearing on a call-in show on CFOS Radio, Miller commented on the issue of would-be Canadian citizens wearing a niqab at their citizenship ceremony. Miller said, "if you don't like that or don't want to do that, stay the hell where you came from, is the way, and I think most Canadians feel the same... I'm so sick and tired of, of people wanting to come here because they know it's a good country and then they want to change things before they even really officially become a Canadian, so , I have no sympathy for her..." The following day, Miller issued a statement apologizing for the inflammatory part of his comments, but maintained his opinion that one should uncover their face when taking the citizenship oath.

In the 2015 election, Miller was reelected by almost 5,000 votes.
