Justice David Berg lambasted Ottawa Police Service Constable Corey Bourguignon for lying under oath when he ruled Vincent Lebrun’s Charter rights were violated so egregiously the evidence against him must be excluded. That evidence was, according to news reports, a grenade launcher. “There is no excuse for a police officer not knowing this basic tenet of our … [Read more...]
Brodie Curtis Young: RCMP Screwup Sets Another Career Criminal With a Firearms Prohibition Order Free
Colour me shocked that our broken firearms prohibition order system failed to stop career criminal Brodie Curtis Young from illegally obtaining a gun and ammunition for it. That's bad, but after RCMP constables violated Young's Charter rights, the entire case against him was tossed out so as not to bring the administration of justice into disrepute. The July 23, 2020, … [Read more...]
More Thoughts on R. v. Iniguez and Our Charter Rights
The R. v. Iniguez decision interests me for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which are the ramifications it could mean for 200,000+ licensed firearm owners whose guns our government wants to confiscate and destroy. I’ll get to that shortly. First, let’s dive into the more fascinating aspects of this decision. Note: If you haven't done so already, I encourage … [Read more...]
Warrantless Search Sets Illegal Sub-Machine Gun Owner Free
Elvis Iniguez is a free man today because the Toronto Police Services violated his Charter rights. They searched his home without a warrant and without his informed consent. The question we must ask is, “Did the judge make the correct decision?” I believe Ontario Superior Court Justice Heather McArthur made the correct decision based on the facts presented to … [Read more...]
4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Denies Your Right to Privacy
I'm forever baffled by morons wearing robes who believe violating our Right to Privacy is perfectly okay. The latest morons in black robes to defecate on our rights is the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia. These robed dipshits ruled, by a vote of 12-3, that police do NOT require a warrant to access your cell phone's location data. Wireless companies, … [Read more...]
EFF Report- Who is Protecting Your Data from Government Requests?

“In the Interest of Public Safety” High River Firearm Seizures are just the beginning
by Tim McNamara On 20 June 2013 the town of High River, Alberta, was inundated by one of the worst floods in a hundred years - homes were destroyed, bridges washed out, and the town was completely evacuated. Unfortunately for High River, the weather was not the only enemy the residents had to face. As the floodwaters began to recede, members of the RCMP, the … [Read more...]
Canada’s Supreme Court Issues Ruling on Computer and Cell Phone Searches
The Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) ruling, R. v. Vu, found that RCMP members violated Thanh Long Vu’s Charter Rights and Freedoms when they executed a search warrant on Vu’s Langley, BC, home in 2007. Despite finding that Vu’s rights were violated the Supreme Court refused to throw out the evidence gained by those violations. Instead the SCC ordered a new trial for Thanh Long … [Read more...]
CSIS Does “End-Run” Around Privacy Law to Spy on Canadians Abroad
It’s as horrifying as it is becoming routine: Canadian police agencies lying to Judges in Court so they can keep violating the law they are supposed to uphold. This time is the Canadian spy agency CSIS that’s caught in the spotlight. Judge Richard Mosley wasn’t pleased when he discovered CSIS and the Communication Security Establishment of Canada (CSEC) lied to him. Both … [Read more...]
[Video] High River RCMP Dog and Pony Show
RCMP in High River, Alberta, broke into the homes of evacuated residents and seized every firearm that wasn't bolted down or locked in a safe, claiming "public safety".

RCMP Commissioner Robert Paulson Finally Speaks to High River RCMP Gun Thefts
It took over a week but RCMP Commissioner Robert Paulson finally came out of hiding to face Canadians about the criminal actions of his force in High River, Alberta. Well, he didn’t actually come out of hiding to face Canadians. He merely published a letter to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP on the RCMP’s website. He still hasn’t reached down into … [Read more...]

High River RCMP Thieves Stole More Than Just Guns…
It's what we feared all along. After RCMP members broke into the homes of flood victims in High River, Alberta, they stole far more than just guns. While illegally searching the homes of Canadians without a search warrant, High River's RCMP thieves just couldn't help themselves to a few extra items "since they were there". One female resident is making a unique plea that … [Read more...]
What does a burning Ukraine Police Station and the High River RCMP have in Common?
What does a burning Ukraine Police Station and the High River RCMP have in Common? Both police forces have no respect for their citizens or the Rule of Law. In the town of Vradiyevka, Ukraine, roughly 330 kilometers south of Kiev, furious protesters took to the streets after authorities refused to arrest a police officer suspected in the brutal gang-rape of a young woman … [Read more...]
High River RCMP Looters are CRIMINALS and must be treated as such IMMEDIATELY
RCMP members and commanders in High River, Alberta, are the worst kind of criminals imaginable. They lay in wait for you until you are at your most vulnerable before they rape and pillage your belongings and then demand YOU pick up the tab for their thievery and destruction. Sounds harsh, doesn't it. It is. The more articles I read describing what these RCMP … [Read more...]
RCMP Violates Property Rights of High River Flood Victims, Searches Homes and Seizes Their Firearms Without Warrant
It’s a story we’ve seen too many times before... the RCMP willingly and completely without legal justification searches homes without a warrant and seizes firearms “for the public good”. No crime is alleged or presumed, just the same tired old mantra “Guns Are Bad” and therefore must be seized. Illegally, I might add. High River Alberta's flood victims are victimized … [Read more...]
Google a Defender of Personal Privacy Against Warrantless FBI Searches?
Say what you like about search engine giant Google, at least in this case they are on the side of we mere citizens as they stand up against US federal government warrantless demands for user information. Using a law that is almost definitely unconstitutional, the FBI regularly demands ISPs and other internet companies hand over user information without a warrant using … [Read more...]
Is Every Phone Call You Make Recorded Without Your Knowledge or Consent?
Constitutions, Charters of Rights and Freedoms, and Bills of Rights mean something under one and only one condition: when those in power choose to follow them. There is not a government in the world that actually respects the documents created by those who founded those nations. Here in Canada, the ink wasn't dry on the Trudeaupian Nightmare, our Charter of Rights and … [Read more...]
US Department of Justice: We don’t need no stinking warrants
US Department of Justice says, “We don’t need no stinking warrants.” It’s always reassuring when the minions of the state do precisely the opposite of what they ought. Instead of protecting and defending the rights of we “mere citizens” they violate those rights instead. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) obtained a copy of an FBI investigation manual which The … [Read more...]
Labrador RCMP member arrested for child luring
Remember when Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said in defense of the warrantless search provisions of Bill C-30, “You’re with us, or the child pornographers”? I find it rather ironic that, just days before Bill C-30 was officially scrapped, an RCMP member in Newfoundland was arrested and charged with child luring on the internet. A member of the RCMP has been arrested and … [Read more...]
Who needs the Constitution when you can have a Police State instead?
[powerpress] You’ve heard the saying many times before… The solution is worse than the problem it’s supposed to solve. That’s precisely the state of affairs in Paragould, Arkansas, a small town roughly 90 miles northwest of Memphis, Tennessee, today. Citizens of this small town, population 26,000, stripped of their Constitutional Rights, are now … [Read more...]
Castle Doctrine Rebounds in Indiana after stupid Indiana State Supreme Court ruling
The Indiana State Supreme Court made a ridiculous ruling last year in Barnes v. State (May 12, 2011). That decision said that Indiana state residents had no right to obstruct illegal police invasions of their homes. Folks who actually comprehend the Rights and Freedoms declared in the Magna Carta were up in arms (pun intended) over the ruling that essentially overturned … [Read more...]
Police overwhelmingly support C-30’s warrantless searches and violation of privacy
It really isn’t a shock to see police chiefs from across Canada coming out in support of the warrantless search and privacy violations contained in Bill C-30, disingenuously named “Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act”. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) even go so far as calling it a “reasonable tool” in the battle against crime. Obviously they … [Read more...]
Bill C-30’s invasions of privacy and warrantless searches are outrageous, but all the other Acts are just fine?
Bruce Cockburn wrote a famous song that contained the line “The trouble with normal is it only gets worse.” The same can be said for governments. They always get worse, too. The current so-called Conservative government is a perfect example of this, and Vic Toews unwittingly tried using this to his advantage. He quickly discovered, much to his dismay, that Canadians … [Read more...]
