Date: August 1, 2012

Attn: Edward Hudson
402 SKEENA Court

Dear Dr. Hudson,

I am writing further to your recent discussions with Mr. Klaassen, Counsel, Department of Justice, regarding teh Saskatoon Provincial Court reference hearing stemming from the revocation of registration certificates issued on March 18, 2005.

This is to confirm that the Canadian Firearms Program is in agreement with the contents of Mr. Klaassen's letter to you dated July 16, 2012, attached.

Please also note that due to Bill C-19, which came into force on April 5, 2012, non-restricted firearms are no longer required to be registered. Consequently, the Notice of Revocation issued to you is no longer applicable, and the Attorney General has advised us that the firearms listed in the revocation notice are no longer subject to surrender for lack of registration. Furthermore, all records of non-restricted firearms previously registered to you, if any, have been made inactive and will be deleted as soon as possible.

You are reminded that the Firearms Act still requires a licence to possess non-restricted firearms.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact Mr. Klaassen.

Kind regards,


Nicole Boucher
Registrar of Firearms
