Dear Sir:

Re: Hudson v. Attorney General of Canada

I am writing further to our phone conversation of July 10, 2012. This letter will confirm the following:

  1. The Federal Crown will accept payment of $2,000.00 in final satisfaction of the awards of costs related to the matter originating in Humboldt Provincial Court up to and including the Application for Leave to appeal the Supreme Court of Canada. Payment should be made to the "Receiver General of Canada" and sent to my attention no later than August 10, 2012.
  2. It is the Federal Crown's position that the reference to the Saskatoon Provincial Court regarding the revocation of Registration Certificates issued on March 28, 2005 is now moot. Registration Certificates for these firearms are no longer required. It is understood between the parties that the firearms listed on the Notice will not be subject to surrender, but that the Firearms Act still requires a licence to possess these firearms and that possession without a licence is an offence under the Criminal Code. We request that you file a Notice of Discontinuance with the Saskatoon Provincial Cout and serve us with a copy.
  3. The firearms that were seized at Carmel and Davidson and were ordered forfeit by Judges Orr and Plemel will remain in RCMP custody unless you obtain and produce a valid Possession and Acquisition Licence. If the firearms are not claimed by October 19, 2012 the firearms may be disposed of a the discretion of Her Majesty.
  4. You are also reminded that the registration requirements of the Firearms Act continue to apply with respect to any restricted firearms in your possession. For additional information you may contact the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program at 1-800-731-4000.

I trust the above is satisfactory and in accordance with our conversation. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.

Yours truly,


Prairie Region
