Liberals Refuse Federal Court Order to
Give Evidence for May 2020 Attacks

16 June 2021

We are updating as we get more info. — Canada’s Liberal Party-led government refused a Federal Court order to produce the evidence that led to its political attacks begun in May 2020 against gun owners.

Hidden Under Section 39

The Clerk of the Privy Council, the most-senior government employee and a top adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, used Section 39 of the Canada Evidence Act to keep e-mails, memos and notes hidden from the court and the public.

The Clerk, Janice Charette, signed the Section 39 certificate on June 14. A Federal Court judge on May 27 gave the government 30 days to produce all documents related to its crackdown.

Disclosure ‘Shall Be Refused’

“As a result of the certification by the Clerk, pursuant to s. 39, ‘disclosure of the information shall be refused without examination or hearing of the information by the court,’” government lawyers told the Federal Court yesterday.

“The attached s. 39 certificate is an absolute bar to filing with the Court under seal the information encompassed by the Order.”

Criminalize and Confiscate

The refusal is the Liberals’ latest obstruction tactic as they push ahead with their May 2020 Order in Council (OIC) that criminalized honest citizens and ordered the confiscation of suddenly blacklisted rifles and shotguns.

    30 Day Deadline
