Dear Mr. Klaassen,
Re: Hudson v. Attorney General of Canada – Remaining Items to Clear File
Thank you for your letter of 16 July 2012 confirming our telephone conversation of 10 July 2012. I appreciate your succinct, point-form summary of the three remaining items in Mr. Spencer’s old “Hudson File”.
I have a concern with Point # 2, the Federal Crown’s position regarding the revocation issued on 18 March 2005 of the Registration Certificates of four of my firearms, and their demand that I surrender these four rifles. I note that the Federal Crown’s position is that this subject is now “moot”. I further note that the word “moot” has several diametrically opposite meanings – the first meaning being “open to discussion or debate.”
Since this fracas began with the letter from the Canadian Firearms Center demanding that I surrender these four rifles, I believe that this action should end with the Canadian Firearms Center (or whatever office or department the CFC may have morphed into over the intervening years) sending me a letter declaring and certifying that all the records relating to these four firearms have been destroyed, and further, that the Canadian Firearms Center retracts their demand that I surrender these four rifles.
Concerning Point #1, our agreement that I pay two thousand ($2,000.xx) dollars to be shed of all court costs involved with the case that began in Humboldt, since this is suppose to be a “final clearance” of my file, I would like to render this payment only after I receive the letter afore mentioned regarding my rifles.
And concerning Point #1, the court ordered forfeiture of my two shotguns to Her Majesty the Queen, I would again like to request that in these types of firearms seizures where no real crime has occurred, the Crown make these firearms available to the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation for their fund raising projects for wildlife habitat renewal.
Please note that Point #4 concerning restricted or prohibited firearms has no reference, relation, nor bearing to any of my discussions or interactions with Mr. Spencer in any of our court matters.
I trust that these refinements to our agreement will be acceptable to all Crown parties involved.
