2009 was a landmark year for CANACE to say the least. We have perhaps appeared relatively quiet to the general public as of late because the bulk of our work has been in the Ontario court system, but this should not be confused with a lack of action on our part as we’ve been furiously busy.
On January 12 we won a precedent setting legal ruling which began to reshape the way that prosecution by private citizens is handled by the courts and the crown. See the ruling here, and the Parkinson v R page for more details. This followed an equally important December 2008 Parkinson v. R ruling.
January 27 CANACE founders traveled south of the border to meet with US officials and provide them with evidence regarding attacks on ATF agents and border patrol guards in Caledonia. Being invited into another Country to provide evidence that our own government refused to hand over to the States was to say the least one of those days that you realize you’ve accomplished something.
