    I can't imagine this happening,yet,it did,quite clearly. Not long ago,right here in Durham Region,I had a work colleague that was fired at while fishing while wading in a creek that ran between two farms. The farmer ordered him off the property at gun point and held him until the Police arrived. He was given a $50 ticket and the farmer wasn't questioned. A police officer said "You can put that away,now." Other than that,nothing else was said. Maybe,your case has set a case-law precedent along with many others that have cropped up over the years. Trespassers need to tread lightly. Searching Canadian case law may be well worth it.

    I hope it wasn't the case that set the precedent but you may be right. I may talk this over with my two nephews and niece who are young OPP officers and City of Windsor Police Officer. My one nephew was studying to be a lawyer before he made the career change to OPP. He may be able to dig up some information for me for piece of mind. But then again the shooter has to live with himself if he's still alive.

The wealthy land owner happened to be patrolling his land and in the distance noticed my two cousin and the friend. The three trespassers my cousins and the friend also saw the land owner and decided it was best to leave and pack up. The land owner started shooting at them hitting my one cousin in the side while more bullets whizzed by the other two men head. They dragged my cousin to the car still alive and rushed him to the hospital where he died. The wealthy land owner got off with a slap on the wrist. Justice in its finest form and all true. I was 13 years old at the time and will never forget how Canadian law screwed over my entire family .

    remember this story :

    Deryl Ring, the man who confronted the snowmobilers with a gun that day, is an alpaca farmer who lives in the area. He said the snowmobilers crossed through his land while they were riding, stressing out his prize-winning animals.
    So he got in his truck and caught up with them on his neighbour's property to confront them.

    (good Video for the court )

    Not sure if we ever posted the sentence he received;

    Deryl Ring received a conditional discharge and 50 hours of community service for a confrontation with snowmobilers last year.


    Deryl Ring arrives at court this morning. (CBC)

    The 62-year-old pleaded guilty to two charges mischief and assault while in possession of a weapon. Ring must also hand over his firearms for a year. It was a joint submission from defence and the Crown. The conditional discharge will be removed from his criminal record in three years if conditions are met.

    That would of definitely changed things for sure especially during those early years (70's & 80's)when you really didn't have to worry about where you could fish.

    Don't forget there are unstable, low functioning, drugged-out people everywhere not just in urban areas. You maybe the person trespassing and you maybe assuming all you're going to get is a warning by the landowner. In asking for permission for turkey hunting I encountered people with all kinds of obvious issues and I really wouldn't want to be caught trespassing by these individuals. They care very little about the law as we know it. I always assume the best in people and I am rarely disappointed but I now realize I might be naive. There problem gets much worse around here during the deer season. Trespassing on to farms that have been traditional hunting areas will not be tolerated. Hell some of these individuals have divs on Crown Land. Dan O.
