    As a farmer none of that applies to me I think. My dogs never leave my property. They don't drive on the public roads so they have no licenses. Hell they aren't even fixed. :D

    Peter, sometimes I wonder if you live in the same Canada I do. Have you ever considered moving? From your descriptions I'd never consider living back east. Two big dogs here. Never had anything stolen, never lock anything. And I've never been charged or held liable for anything from having said dogs.

    Yah take a break. I've pushed a ton of soot this week as people are starting to think ahead for the heating season. Thankful for the work. But I'm heading off this weekend and beginning of next week for some camping. Real camping. No wifi. Lol.

    I agree. Much smarter to think through scenarios ahead of time. but still heat of the moment could be hard to stick to any sort of pre-planning. A ounce of prevention and all that. Ive boasted before about being able to sleep with my doors wide open. But anyone that knows me on here knows I've got a couple of beasts watching my back too. And no doubt about it, it's easy to sleep sound with Thundy and Tankyboy stretched out in the mud room.

    Certainly I would concede that our laws and justice system are much less lenient in the use of force to defend yourself, when compared to the USA. Up here, if you're going to shoot someone, you'd better have your ducks in a row. Meaning it had better be a legitimate defence of yourself and home.

    It probably doesn't, but it still has some biggish cities, maybe it would be interesting to compare stats in similar sized cities from the US?. But how do you compare without comparing? I'm just regurgitating in that link what seems to be commonly accepted, our crime rates are lower. Canada is what it is, same as the USA. But here yes you may be charged if you go to town in someone for trying to rob you. Espescially I believe if they have surrendered or are retreating. If you really look into charges against homeowners for defending against an invasion I believe that is the common theme you will see. That an assault took place after a surrender or during retreat. Otherwise we can as the law states 'stand our ground'. Section 40 of the Criminal Code notes, “everyone who is in possession of a dwelling house is justified in using as much force as necessary, to prevent any person from forcibly breaking into or entering the dwelling house without lawful authority

    Jay. That link is the same other story that Peter brought up a bit back. The innocent homeowner who is charged was a drug dealer. Last in the list of charges is possession for the purpose of trafficking. So he was more than likely previously prohibited from having guns and had them anyways to protect his stash, which is why he was being home invaded in the first place. He is exactly the type of homeowner who should be charged. A frigging drug dealer. Good for the cops for laying the charges on thick I say. Stories like this get 'twisted' to outrage Canadians.

    Jim. Some blurb taken out of context, reported by some obscure am radio news channel is not something I'm looking to discuss a whole ton. I will discuss our actual laws and actual cases if anyone cares to debate.

    Correct me if I'm wrong Jim. But where did I say it was 'no big deal' to be investigated for assault? I'm sure it's a big deal, I imagine the whole event was.

    You're not following at all. If you assault someone in Canada it will be investigated no matter what where or who took part in it. That is called due diligence and has to be done to be fair to all parties involved. It ain't the Wild West.

    Jim. I'm third generation Canadian. I have not nor do I know anyone who has been 'terrorized' by the police. Yet there is a whole u tube basically over boiling with USA troopers trampling all over your guys 'rights'. I pass it off as sensationalistic camera footage but maybe I should paint your whole country with the same brush instead? Do you fear your police? Because I don't.

    I completely miss the relevance. You guys don't get audited in the US? Or it's optional for you or something? You just say 'no thanks, I'd rather not'. And to clarify, it had nothing to do with police whatsoever. I was 'terrorized'(according to Jim) by an accountant.

    Seriously. Read that last national post article I linked and tell me again how few 'rights' I have. The original story Peter linked and the one he linked a week or two ago are nothing more than sensationalistic reporting. Click bait.

    This is the law in canada: In Canadian criminal law, a convicted person who is designated a dangerous offender may be subjected to an indeterminate prison sentence, whether or not the crime carries a life sentence, but this does not apply to convictions of first degree murder, second degree murder, high treason, and treason.

    Because the article is a non-article. You think that homeowner is going to be charged and going to go to court for assault? I think that's highly doubtful. He's being investigated for assault because he assaulted the thief. If the events are as described I would think any reasonable prosecutor will not press charges.

    Of course he's being investigated. He assaulted the thief. That's how it works up here. But seriously link me up with all the Canadians that are serving time because they lawfully defended their homes.
