Proud to be a Canadian. Our Prime Minister in his never ending zeal to eradicate gun crime with the introduction of Bill C-21 and amendments to Canada’s Criminal Code this year is making my community a safe haven for some Canadians.

His recent sentencing amendments and insistence on the premise that those from certain backgrounds require different and lenient treatment due to their racial and\or unfortunate socio/economic status in this colonial corrupted land has lead to some interesting outcomes as described below.

From an article by Chris Doucette of 15 May, 2024 we find the following charge sheet outlined after a York Regional Police arrest of a young man of Indian extraction:

He’s charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a firearm knowing its purpose is unauthorized, careless use of a firearm, careless storage of ammunition, four counts of possession of a prohibited device, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, tampering with a Vehicle Identification Number, forgery, possession of a Schedule I substance and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking… “The suspect was found hiding in the back of a stolen vehicle and when taken into custody, a loaded firearm fell from his waistband.”

Quite a shopping list of offences. The specific brand of pants was not named in the article but I am sure that the police recorded such in their notes. The suspect should also have been charged with stupidity for his concealed carry system.

Now I don’t want to focus on the negative here but I feel that once this young man appears before a justice for a bail hearing he will be back on the street within hours as he fits neatly within the framework of Mr. Trudeau’s jaundiced view of the real world of crime.

The article quoted above did not specifically state whether or not this individual was out on bail to begin with or under a Court order prohibiting the possession of any firearms or if he had in fact stolen the vehicle he was caught hiding in. Apparently the pistol seized fell out of his pants upon arrest, but it would not surprise this reader if any of the above pertains to this individual, notwithstanding, he is innocent until proven guilty.

Fortunately for we, the public, our Ontario Premier Doug Ford, is putting forth legislation that would, upon conviction, prohibit the individual from holding a valid Ontario license for ten years, fifteen years or a life suspension. Can’t get much tougher than that, according to Premier Doug.

This is certain to shake the car theft industry to the core in fear of losing a license that many do not possess to begin with or are too young to even apply for a license. No doubt that Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act will come down hard on these perpetrators, impose a curfew to be ignored and let them off unsupervised due to time served waiting in line at the Tim Hortons drive-though.

These strategies are akin to the legislative pounding given to Canadian gun owners by our ever diligent virtue signalling Liberal Government bent on making points with the electorate.
