The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has announced their official intention to intervene in the CCFR's court challenge against the OIC gun ban. The JCCF is a public interest, non-partisan law firm and registered charity that provides pro bono legal representation to protect the rights and freedoms of all Canadians.
In their press release dated July 13, 2020, the JCCF highlights the lack of democratic oversight in present parliament and questions the motives of the government with this sweeping ban.
“The arbitrary and opportunistic confiscation of property from Canadians by a Federal Cabinet operating behind closed doors, with no transparency and without accountability to an independent Parliament, is little better than theft,” states Jay Cameron, Litigation Manager with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms.
“Canada is a democracy, but Trudeau’s Cabinet passed this Order-in-Council during a pandemic and during a Parliamentary shut down when this Order-in-Council has nothing to do with COVID-19. This looks like an effort to avoid the scrutiny of the representatives of Canadians in Parliament. Our position is that the Order-in-Council is outside the bounds of the rule of law and the Constitution.”
Opposition to this undemocratic gun grab is mounting, as heavy hitters like the JCCF come out to support the CCFR's legal action, the largest and most comprehensive of all the court actions filed against the ban.
You can support the fight against this ban!! Help us, help you save your guns.
