RCMP Letter – Legitimate Notice or Fishing Expedition?

The RCMP’s problem is upwards of 175,000 now-Prohibited firearms were classified as Non-Restricted on April 30, 2020, the day before their virtue-signalling press conference announcing the ban.

The RCMP has no idea who owns any of these guns and the only way to trigger individual notifications is by revoking a Registration Certificate.

Since registration is not required for Non-Restricted firearms, neither the Trudeau government nor the RCMP know who owns these guns.

So why did the RCMP really send this letter?

Sask. Bill amendment prevents municipalities from banning guns

REGINA -- The Saskatchewan government has introduced amendments to Bill 194, that it says will further protect the rights of legal gun owners in the province.

The province says amendments to this bill will prevent banning gun ownership at the municipal level.

Recently the federal government had made clear its plan to pass legislation that would allow municipalities the ability to ban guns.

“The Government of Saskatchewan prefers to take the position of encouraging education and safety with a focus on current enforcement efforts, while taking a tough stance on criminals who are breaking the existing laws, rather than further restricting legitimate firearms ownership by law-abiding residents,” Government Relations Minister Lori Carr said.

The amendments were to The Miscellaneous Municipal Statutes Amendment Act, 2019.

Action Item # 15:

Support the Canadian Taxpayer Association as they enter the Legal Fray:

Taking the gun ban and buyback to court

We all want a safer Canada, but buying back guns from licenced gun owners won’t stop criminals

So we need your help to save taxpayers’ money by taking Ottawa to court.

The Trudeau government’s gun ban won’t make Canadians safer, but it WILL waste hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.

Even worse, the Trudeau government imposed these new regulations without holding a vote in Parliament.

Ottawa is ducking accountability yet again.

Canadians aren’t going to stand for it. In fact, at least one has already launched a court challenge to these new regulations.

Cassandra Parker, who owns a small business in Prince George, B.C., has launched a legal challenge in the Federal Court against the new gun buyback. She needs all the help she can get.

We want to jump into the court fight as interveners to support her.

We’ve done this before: to fight the carbon tax; to fight for the right of the Ontario government to shrink Toronto city council; and for the right of provincial governments to refuse pay raises for employees.

Whenever we’ve shown up in court, the CTF has been there to represent a point of view that no one else will: taxpayers.

We’re lucky to have an outstanding lawyer, James Plotkin, representing us as we seek permission from the court to intervene.

Normally, the legal fees for a case like this are extremely expensive, but James has given us a deep discount. So we need to raise $21,000 by the end of June to make sure we are ready to file documents before court deadlines.

Can you help chip in to cover the cost? You can donate on our secure website by clicking this LINK.

https://www.taxpayer.com/donate/scrap-the-gun-ban-and-buy-back

We know that to fight for you, we need to use all the tools we have and that includes going to court to make sure your voice is heard.

Thank you as always for your support!

Aaron, Todd, Shannon and the entire CTF team

Alberta Parks and Environment minister Jason Nixon

Be it resolved that the Legislative Assembly

(a) recognize that the criminal use of firearms primarily involves unlicensed individuals, often using illegally smuggled firearms;

(b) express its opposition to the Government of Canada’s recent decision to amend regulations to the Criminal Code to prohibit the possession, transportation and sale of certain types of legally-acquired firearms by licensed, law-abiding citizens; and

(c) urge the Government of Alberta to take all necessary steps to assert provincial jurisdiction in connection with these matters, including replacing the Chief Firearms Officer having jurisdiction for Alberta as designated by the federal Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness with a chief firearms officer for Alberta designated by the Government of Alberta in accordance with the Firearms Act (Canada).

Effect of firearms legislation on suicide and homicide in Canada

No beneficial association was found between legislation and female or male homicide rates. There was no association found with firearm prevalence rates per province and provincial suicide rates, but an increased association with suicide rates was found with rates of low income, increased unemployment, and the percentage of aboriginals in the population. In conclusion, firearms legislation had no associated beneficial effect on overall suicide and homicide rates. Prevalence of firearms ownership was not associated with suicide rates. Multifaceted strategies to reduce mortality associated with firearms may be required such as steps to reduce youth gang membership and violence, community-based suicide prevention programs, and outreach to groups for which access to care may be a particular issue, such as Aboriginals.

Major Announcement - National Education Campaign

The CCFR is launching the largest public awareness campaign on behalf of gun owners in Canadian history. This new high water mark is in the form of a massive national advertising campaign. This program is designed to raise awareness of the CCFR's property rights lawsuit and how it affects the lives of every Canadian. Through this, the CCFR aims to present the unfair treatment of gun owners and create an opportunity for non-gun owning Canadians to see the other side of this debate. This campaign launched yesterday Monday, June 22nd and is made up of the following actions:

A 750-word full page article and infographic on the injustice of the gun ban via OIC and its relationship to property rights in Canada. This article will be published, in this format, in 17 broadsheet and tabloid format newspapers across Canada. These include the National Post, Financial Post, Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Province, Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald, Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Regina Leader Post, Windsor Star, Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette, Kingston Whig-Standard, London Free Press and Sun newspapers in Edmonton, Ottawa, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto.

In addition, a full page open letter will be published in the 17 above-mentions publications three separate times over a 6-week period.

A sponsored interview/article supported by online banner advertising delivered via over 6 million impressions. This includes social media advertising and advertising on the websites of all the previously-mentioned newspaper websites as well.

360,000 instances of audio ad commercials on all major online music services.

All these sources drive traffic to our new domain www.propertyjustice.ca which in turn redirects to an all new page on firearmrights.ca. Visitors are greeted with a new explainer video detailing why all Canadians should care about this historic court case and why they should consider supporting it. They will also be directed to our online quiz so they can determine if they currently know anything about Canada's firearm laws.

Licensed, law abiding, Canadian gun owners will not be ignored. Our opinions matter and we are part of the Canadian cultural fabric.

None of these projects happen without the support of individual gun owners becoming members or donating to the CCFR. Please support the CCFR in this and other ground-breaking projects because doing nothing is not an option.

The not unexpected response from the Human Rights Commission:

Dear XXXX:


This is further to your complaint (“complaint”) to the Canadian Human Rights Commission (Commission). You allege that the Government of Canada’s (federal government) provisions in an Amnesty Order1 for prohibited firearms result in adverse differential treatment based on the grounds of race and national or ethnic origin, contrary to the Canadian Human Rights Act (the Act). To date the Commission has received many similar complaints.


Under s. 40(1) of the Act, an individual may file a complaint with the Commission if they have reasonable grounds “for believing that a person is engaging or has engaged in a discriminatory practice”. The term “discriminatory practice” generally means to adversely differentiate "on a prohibited ground" under the Act.


The threshold to show reasonable grounds in a complaint is low. However, the Commission is satisfied that in this case, the complaint does not demonstrate reasonable grounds that the federal government is engaging in a discriminatory practice.

The Amnesty Order provides a period of time to allow people to safely dispose of firearms newly-prohibited under the Criminal Code2. The Amnesty Order also permits people who already possess a prohibited firearm, to hunt in the following limited circumstances until they can obtain another firearm3 :

“in the exercise of a right recognized and affirmed by section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982”, which recognizes and affirms the existing aboriginal and treaty rights of Aboriginal people in Canada; or,
“to sustain [a] person or their family”. This exception for sustenance hunting is available to any individual, irrespective of their race or national or ethnic origin.

The Amnesty Order expires on April 30, 20224. After it expires, the prohibition on firearms will apply to all persons, although the federal government has indicated it will engage with Indigenous communities to assess whether the new regulations have a continued impact on their constitutionally-protected rights5.

The crux of your complaint is that the exception in the Amnesty Order applicable to Indigenous persons exercising a s. 35 hunting right discriminates against people who are not Indigenous. This allegation does not constitute “reasonable grounds” under s. 40(1) of the Act because differentiation based on rights in s. 35 of the Constitution Act, 19826 does not result in discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act. The Constitution is the supreme law of Canada. It takes precedence over all other Canadian laws.

Moreover, the rights guaranteed in s. 35 to Indigenous persons are unique and “flow from both their historical and cultural origins as well as their status as constitutional rights.”7 The Supreme Court of Canada has stressed that s. 35 rights are held only by Indigenous members of Canadian society8. The allegation that the temporary amnesty for Indigenous persons based on their constitutional rights results in discrimination to non-Indigenous persons does not constitute reasonable grounds to file a complaint of discrimination under the Act. Therefore, the Commission is unable to accept your complaint.

Lawsuit against Trudeau's gun grab will move forward

The Justice Centre announced that it will be moving forward in applying to challenge the constitutionality of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Cabinet Order of confiscating property that was legally acquired by Canadians, according to the Justice Centre's website.

This just in from the CCFR:

On May 2nd, the CCFR made a statement regarding a variety actions we were prepared to take to oppose the Liberal Gun Ban. Part of that statement was a commitment to coordinate mass filings of Sec.74 challenges should the RCMP revoke registrations for AR15s and other previously restricted firearms. See the end of this statement for a brief explanation of these types of challenge applications.

The purpose of this mass filing is to serve as a legal and reasonable form of protest. Though the applications would almost certainly fail to preserve the restricted classification of our firearms, the desired effect would be to allow use of our firearms while the matter is settled in court. It would also serve as an almost unmanageable bureaucratic burden on the court system resulting in delays that could stretch for years. Again, this is a reasonable and legal form of protest that could have been easily avoided had the government acted in a fair and honest way.

At this point, the CCFR has decided not to pursue this course of action. There are several factors we have considered in making this decision. The way this prohibition happened; we would not be able to continue to use our affected firearms in the interim thus negating one possible benefit. The way that Sec. 74 challenges typically work is not compatible in this situation. Next, the Canadian courts, both Provincial and Federal are significantly backlogged. Our coordinated filings would clog the courts so severely that many criminal cases would not have an opportunity to be heard in a reasonable time. This would trigger a flood of Jordan applications.

Jordan law applications are related to sec 11 of the Charter and its guarantee of a trial within a reasonable time. In 2019, a story from Global News revealed that nearly 800 criminal cases were stayed and offenders walked free because of unreasonable delays due to an overloaded court system. To date, six murder cases have been among those dismissed. There were roughly 6000 cases in Canada in danger of being abandoned as of 2018. These are the figures available.

Adding another 10,000 to 40,000 applications could result in serious criminals going unpunished for their crimes. As a law and order group, the CCFR finds this risk unacceptable. Adding the reality that this action would not allow us to use our firearms in the interim nor otherwise save them is the reason we will not pursue this course of action.

Public relations and representing licensed gun owners as the everyday, honest citizens they are, is not served by clogging the courts to make a point will fail to enhance our image to mainstream Canadians. In fact, it would leave us exposed to negative press; especially since we are already seeking remedy from the courts via our Charter challenge and injunction application.

The CCFR is currently investigating another approach to this situation. We are considering launching a single application under Sec 74 to test the limits of the law. We have two legal teams providing opinions on how much evidence can be entered and whether constitutional arguments can be introduced in a proceeding of this kind.

What can you do?

If you want to take the government to court, you already are. If you haven’t supported the CCFR’s legal fund, consider doing that. The CCFR is the first firearm organization to directly sue the government and file a charter challenge on behalf of gun owners in Canadian history. Our decision to not coordinate a mass filing is one we have made as an organization. We continually endeavor to be a firearm rights organization you can be proud to support. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
