Self-defense in Canada
It's getting pretty ugly. Masked gang throws firebombs into man's house at night, he shoots into air to drive them off, and he gets prosecuted for careless use of a firearm and pointing a firearm.
The list of court cases being defended against by the Canadian Constitution Foundation is pretty astounding, too. People fined for handing out literature, or writing letters to the editor that offended someone, orders to never again publish such material, orders to apologize, tax auditors who seized and shredded documents, then claimed taxes were due since the taxpayer didn't have original statements, etc.
Do you have to be a citizen or resident of Canada to complaint to the human rights board?
I am offended by censorship, and wouldn't mind a few grand^H^H^H^H^H^H^H, suffered irreparable harm from reading that link.

There is no Freedom of Press or of Speech in Canada.

Sounds like they're tripping down Britain's old road - whoever is standing at the end of a fight gets prosecuted, regardless of who started it or why.

There's nothing to see. Move along.
This is how it's been up there for decades.
