On August 17, 2022, Shiloh Blue Keewatin was arrested in Regina with a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition for it.
As a result of this arrest, Keewatin was charged with
- Pointing a firearm, s. 87 CC;
- Careless use of a firearm, s. 86(1) CC;
- Possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to public peace, s. 88 CC;
- Possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized, s. 92(1) CC;
- 3 X Possession of a firearm (16 gauge shotgun) contrary to prohibition, s. 117.01(1) CC; and
- 3 X Possession of a firearm (16 gauge shotgun shells) contrary to prohibition, s. 117.01(1) CC.
At the time of his latest arrest, Shiloh Blue Keewatin was already subject to three separate Firearm Prohibition Orders – the result of previous convictions.
Those three useless pieces of paper (Firearm Prohibition Orders) did not stop this violent repeat offender from obtaining another illegal gun and use it to threaten another person with it.
Because no law enforcement agency in Canada is tasked with checking on individuals convicted of violating their Firearm Prohibition Orders.
These criminals are released on bail and that seems to be the end of it.
Until their next arrest for threats of violence or acts of violence.
Violent Criminal History
April 2, 2019: The Regina Police Service Street Gang Unit began receiving unconfirmed information about a possible assault and forcible confinement of an unknown female on March 26, 2019. Through continued investigation, the Gang Unit, with the assistance of the Major Crime Unit and Street Crime Units, were able to confirm the female victim. As the investigation continued, victim identification and safety became a priority, along with the apprehension of the suspect identified through the investigation. Other victims were also identified. Numerous investigative techniques led to the execution of an arrest warrant in the 2000 block of Ottawa Street on April 2, 2019. Given the nature of the (March 26th) offences and the likelihood of firearms being present, a request for Emergency Services’ assistance was authorized.
Shiloh Blue KEEWATIN, of Regina, is charged with:
- 2 X Aggravated Assault, [268(1) CC];
- 3 X Forcible Confinement, [279(2) CC];
- 3 X Uttering Threats, [264.1(1) CC];
- 6 X Possession of a Firearm or Ammunition Contrary to Prohibition, [117.01(1) CC];
- Possession of a Firearm Knowing its Possession is Unauthorized, [92(1) CC];
- 3 X Pointing a Firearm, [87(1) CC];
- Unsafe Storage of a Firearm, [86(2) CC];
- Possession of a Loaded or Restricted Firearm, [95(1) CC];
- 3 X Use of a Firearm in Commission of an Indictable Offence, [85(1)(a) CC]; and
- Possession of Methamphetamine, [4(1) CDSA].
A search of newspaper archives and the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CANLII.org) could not find any other cases to account for his three Firearm Prohibition Orders as listed by the Regina Police Service.
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.
