Robin Dean Wuttunee’s criminal history is long and violent, so violent that he was deemed a dangerous offender by the courts, according to the RCMP.
While many details are banned from publication by judicial orders, his repeated violation of Firearms Prohibition Orders prove, yet again, just how useless our current system is.

Robin Wuttunee, Samuel Larry Wuttunnee, Evan Kennedy and Dustin Moosomin threatened those inside the home with a gun, sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl and assaulted a 26-year-old man in their attempt to steal drugs and money.
On September 15, 2007, The Leader-Post reported Robin Wuttunee was sentenced to five years in prison for the crimes he committed during the 2006 home invasion and was placed under a Firearms Prohibition Order.
On December 18, 2011, a warrant for Robin Wuttunee’s arrest was issued after he beat a woman with a shotgun on the Red Pheasant First Nation. Wuttunee was charged with possession of a weapon for the dangerous purpose, pointing a firearm, assault with a weapon, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition order.
On October 12, 2016, The Leader-Post reported Robin D. Wuttunee was fined $12,510 for illegal hunting, use of a search light for hunting, and guiding without a licence.
On July 17, 2021, Robin Wuttunee was arrested on Onion Lake Cree Nation after a security checkpoint search discovered a semiautomatic rifle in a duffel bag. Wuttunee was charged with five counts of possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition order, six other weapons offences and three counts of failing to comply with a release order.
On September 9, 2021, Robin Wuttunee was back in court facing charges for attempting to break out of the Saskatoon Correctional Centre.
Wuttunee was denied bail in Lloydminster Provincial Court on Aug. 26. In his ruling, Judge Murray Pelletier said he was denying Wuttunee bail on secondary grounds. This means that detention is necessary for the protection or safety of the public including whether there is a substantial likelihood the accused will commit a further offence or interfere with the administration of justice.
The System is Broken
People with a history of violent offences are a proven danger to public safety, yet these are the people our government refuses to deal with.
- No police agency in Canada tracks individuals with Firearm Prohibition Orders registered against them.
- There is no legal requirement for police to track individuals with Firearm Prohibition Orders registered against them or routinely check on them to ensure compliance.
- There is no legal requirement for individuals with Firearm Prohibition Orders to notify police when they move to a new residence. Police have no idea where these people are.
As you will see if you study any of the cases on my media tracking page for Firearm Prohibition Order Violators, the only way these offenders are discovered is when police arrest them for some other crime. Only after their arrest on other charges do police realize the offender is the subject of a Firearms Prohibition Order.
If you feel so inclined…
Please contact Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino and encourage him to fix our broken Firearm Prohibition Order system so repeat violent offenders like Robin Dean Wuttunee are not given a free pass to offend again.
