Q.B. No. 810 of 2007

IN THE COURT OF QUEEN’S BENCH FOR SASKATCHEWAN

JUDICIAL CENTRE OF SASKATOON

IN THE MATTER OF AN APPLICATION FOR A JUDICIAL REVIEW PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF PART 52 OF THE RULES OF COURT;

AND IN THE MATTER OF AN APPLICATION FOR DECLARATION DIRECTED TO SECTION 117.03 OF THE CRIMINAL CODE:

BETWEEN:

EDWARD B. HUDSON
APPLICANT

AND

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CANADA
RESPONDENT

AFFIDAVIT OF PIERRE LEMIEUX

I, Pierre Lemieux, of Lac-Saguay, in the Province of Québec, make oath and say as
follows:

1. That I am a citizen of Canada.

2. That I was born in Sherbrooke (Québec), Canada, on July 5, 1947, and have spent
most of my life in this country.

3. That my family history in Canada goes back to approximately 1647, when my
Norman ancestors landed in New France.

4. That I have legally owned and possessed firearms in Canada, without any licence to own them, from the early 1970s until 2001.

5. That I consider the ownership and possession of firearms without a licence part of my Canadian heritage and my traditional liberties.

6. That French Canadians have owned and used firearms without licences for centuries, starting under the French Regime and through most of the history of Confederation.

7. That I have written books and articles on such topics, including my Confessions d’un coureur des bois hors-la-loi (Montréal: Varia, 2001).

8. That, in 2001, with much hesitation, I applied for the newly required firearms licence, and obtained it despite my refusal to answer a question relating to my love affairs.

9. That, on May 30th, 2007, I sent by registered mail the required form to renew this
firearms licence, but refused again to answer the same question asking, “During the
past two (2) years, have you experienced a divorce, a separation, a breakdown of a
significant relationship, job loss or bankruptcy?”, writing instead that “My love
affairs are none of your business”.

10. That I consider such questions as an assault on my dignity, and a violation of my
traditional liberties.

11. That I consider the requirement that an honest citizen need to apply for a licence to own firearms, and even just to keep the ones he has already acquired, a violation of
our traditional liberties.

12. That any decree that requires such degrading obligation from me cannot be a valid
law.

13. That, despite the Canada Firearms Centre having received my application form on
June 4, 2007, as proven by a Canada Post advice of receipt in my possession, I was
never contacted in any way by them or their representatives, and I have not received a renewed firearms licence.

14. I have thus been without a firearms licence since July 6, 2007, while retaining
possession of my legally acquired firearms.

15. That I take this Affidavit in support of Dr. Edward B. Hudson’s Notice of Motion to declare that Section 117.03 of the Criminal Code is ultra vires Parliament on the
ground that it is inconsistent with the Preamble to the Constitution Act, 1867 (the
British North America Act, 1867) and violates ss 26 and 7 of the Canadian Charter of
Rights and Freedoms.

Signed: Pierre Lemieux

 

SWORN before me at the City of L’Annonciation,
in the Province of Québec,
this 11th day of July 2007
