Do I Have a Defence?
In many cases, a firearm seized by police is found in a location where more than one person may have access to it, such as a house or a vehicle. The investigation may be based on a mere hunch, a police informant, or even a traffic stop that may lead to the issuance of a search warrant. Like all cases, the defence strategy will be to put the actions of the police under the microscope to uncover any Charter violations that may result in the exclusion of the evidence seized. In most firearms cases, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms plays a pivotal role, and our defence team has the experience and the knowledge to identify all issues, including those that include police not following proper procedure in following proper procedure in these cases.

These cases are very similar to drug prosecutions including police techniques in the execution of search warrants and informants. These charges are very serious, and can carry a minimum period of incarceration of 3 years for those charges relating to the possession of a prohibited firearm or a restricted firearm and loaded firearms.
