This is a discussion on Canada CCW arrest video within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; YouTube - Defending yourself with a handgun a crime say police...
BTW, the ruling party is not progressive/liberal. The ruling Conservative Party are in favour of bringing in sensible gun laws, but are in a minority government. If the Liberal Party wins the next election it will be bad news for us. One of the items in their platform last time was to BAN private ownership of handguns altogether.
Also BTW, Mrs. GunnyBunny moved to Canada from the US.

the news dude finds it disturbing that someone defended their own property?
I suppose he leaves his garage open and invites everyone off the street to help themselves.... yeah right.

I could think of many words to describe it but I'll just use the word 'SAD'.

When a bear comes into your home (B&E) and is rooting around for "eats," to refuse to be food is rational and expected. Same thing, doubly so, when that intruder coming after you is a biped and evil, focused on terminating you.
And yet, Victoria BC police claim that upstanding citizens are to be criminalized as vigilantes for defending themselves against crime in their own homes?
Pathetic and sad, how far some humans have fallen into insanity.
Don't hold out any hopes of ever changing. Canada's parliamentary type of government insures that the power is always in the population centers Toronto, Montreal etc. The people in the less populated areas might not as well even vote.
An armed populace are called citizens.
An unarmed populace are called subjects.
