Wow a Canadian court says you can feel safe in your own home. The right to self defence is strongly endorsed. This is is good news. I believe as does the common law that one has the right to defend one's home, self and family. It is good to know that even some judges believe that

Matt Gurney on an Ontario court’s strong endorsement of the right to self-defence

Last weekend, in the small town of Arnprior, Ont., a father and son confronted a man apparently trying to force his way into their home. During the struggle, the alleged intruder, 41-year-old Corey Blaskie, was fatally stabbed. Blaskie had prior criminal convictions, and the family (not yet identified) had already suffered a spate of property crimes against their home in recent months.

It’s too early to draw any conclusions from this unfortunate incident. But it is worth noting that even while local police have said that charges against the father, a retired Canadian Armed Forces officer, and his son may be pending, a recent ruling by the Ontario Court of Appeals suggests that if charges are laid, the two potential defendants have cause for optimism.

charges that are laid by police against people who are defending themselves always get kicked to the curb by a jury. the judges should decline to even hear that type of case. the police are very dangerous to our freedom when they can charge people for self defence.

When exactly should the optimism kick in, before or after these victims of crime are bankrupted by legal bills from a justice system that should be on THEIR side?

Trucker, we are leaning into the Castle Doctrine at present.

Now we just gotta pound it into the lib crown.

The fact is, if the crown keeps laying charges, when it is evident that the court will toss them, its not justice, its lawfare by the crown.
