Gary Meschishnick Q.C.
Saskatchewan Party President
901, 119 4th Avenue South,
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7K 5X2

Dear Gary,

Re: Edward B. Hudson v. Her Majesty the Queen
Court File No. CACV 2117

Further to our previous discussions regarding the Saskatchewan Party’s regrettable slowness in implementing Policy Resolution JS10-1 to amend the current the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code to enshrine the individual’s Right to own property (1), I would like to invite you to Court to hear a specific example of where our Rights to private property are being abused by our Government.
As the enclosed Hearing Notice from the Registrar for the Court of Appeal indicates, I will be in Court at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, 15 September 2011 at 520 Spadina Crescent East, Saskatoon, to present my Constitutional argument against one small part of the Firearms Act.

As amended by the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act, Criminal Code section 117.03 gives the police the authority to seize, confiscate, and destroy our personal property without arrest, charge, trial, or conviction. I find that intolerable in the extreme.

I will be contesting this usurpation of authority at the Court of Appeal next month, arguing that I have the Right to a trial by my peers before the Government can destroy my legally acquired and responsibly used personal property.

I will be ‘self-represented’, but as this will be my third appearance before the Court of Appeal on related Firearms Act issues, my argument will be a bit more concise than some of my previous appearances in court. Unfortunately my case is listed second for that date, so I cannot say that we will be starting promptly at 10 a.m. – more likely my case will not be heard until noon.

I have posted my “Legal Argument for a Right to Trial” on-line:

I hope that this Court case will help you appreciate why we need a greatly strengthened Saskatchewan Bill of Rights.

I look forward to discussing the improvement 0f the protection of our personal property Rights with you. Perhaps we could meet before we all gear up for the fall election?

Sincerely,


Edward B. Hudson DVM, MS
Secretary
