    Once the Crown withdraws any charges,grounds for the seizure becomes null and void. They must return any property seized as a result.
    Society needs to stop bending to the will of the delusional.

    You are right. The fact that charges were laid could result in licence revocation. Charges do not necessarily need to be laid as well. The suspended licence holder can request a hearing to have his/her licence reinstated. It would all depend on the circumstances.

    I'm not sure I would be comfortable shooting at someone because they were on my property, to steal or not. Firing a warning shot sounds like I would go to jail here whether I hit them or not. Now it they threatened me with a weapon that would be a different story. IMO this is getting to close to becoming US style of justice.

    US-style justice emerges because the populace has lost all confidence in their police services and courts. It's glaringly apparent in Canada that this has become all too prevalent. When we see the results of cases like those out west where Police were an hour away and ensuing events,it's not rocket science to see why.

    They would not likely "Threaten" you with a weapon. They would just "USE IT" on you. If you have to wait till a weapon is used on you before you can defend yourself, you have already lost the fight.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    It's not "US STYLE" justice. The right to protect one's self, property, friends family, or even strangers is older then recorded history.

    Just last week , I spoke with a cop that was patrolling our area [Rural Hamilton], He told me that if he was in the other end of his/their patrol area it would take him 43 minutes to reach us at the best of times .
    You don't have to live "out west " to have a rather long lag time for cops to respond, it can and does happen here in good old Ontario's rural areas.

    There is presently a trial going on in Hamilton. A guy shot and killed a man who broke into his truck. It’s now gone to the Jury. Should be interesting !

    There was a bank in london that got robbed so many times, they closed the branch. It was across the street from the police station. The police could look out the front window and see the robbery suspects leave the bank, but the cruisers were all 15 to 20 minutes away.

    I have been keeping up with this one, very interesting comments have come up by the defense attorney and [ witness's military ] for the defense.
    The outcome as has been said "should be interesting " .
