Red Deer-Lacombe MP Blaine Calkins says new laws put heat on gun owners while easing up on offenders

Back in the last parliament, the Liberals under the direction of Trudeau used their majority (even though they had the support of the other parties on the left) to pass bill C-75. That bill changed the criminal code, weakening mandatory sentence provisions, and codified something called the “principle of restraint”, which means the court must release someone on bail as soon as possible, with the least amount of conditions.

Even a repeat offender.

Now, the same Liberal cohort, is expropriating property from law abiding, licensed and daily vetted firearms owners, under the threat of criminal sanctions.

Read the article below.

Tell me if you can follow Liberal logic. You can’t, because there isn’t any. Liberals yell “science science science” from the highest treetop, then call everyone else who disagrees with them names, then enact emotion driven legislation with no facts to back it up.

I’ll fight to keep our communities safer by focusing on criminals, gangs and smugglers, and leave lawful patriotic tax paying Canadians alone.

Red Deer man arrested in one of Alberta’s largest ever contraband tobacco seizures

News Release from Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis

$4.5 million in contraband tobacco products seized by AGLC investigators

An investigation by Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) led to the seizure of an estimated $4.5 million dollars of contraband tobacco. The seizure represents one of the largest recorded in Alberta history. The total potential lost tax revenue is estimated to be more than $2.5 million dollars.

A search warrant was executed in partnership with Calgary Police Service and the RCMP at a storage facility in southeast Calgary. Ali Al-Hameedawi of Red Deer and Husham Hakeem of Calgary were each charged with trafficking in contraband tobacco, contrary to section 121.1 of the Criminal Code of Canada and fraud over $5,000. The accused are scheduled to appear in Calgary Provincial Court on August 26, 2021.

Contraband tobacco:

  • is any tobacco product that does not comply with federal and provincial laws related to importation, marking, manufacturing, stamping and payment of duties and taxes;
  • comes from four main sources: illegal manufacturers, counterfeits, tax-exempt diversions and resale of stolen legal tobacco; and
  • can be recognized by the absence of a red (Alberta) or peach/light tan (Canada) stamp bearing the “DUTY PAID CANADA DROIT ACQUITTÉ” on packages of cigarettes and cigars or pouches of tobacco.

In addition to lost revenues that may otherwise benefit Albertans, illegally manufactured products also pose public health and safety risks as they lack regulatory controls and inspections oversight.

All wholesalers and importers of tobacco into Alberta must be licensed to sell or import tobacco for resale. Furthermore, all tobacco products must be labelled according to federal and provincial regulations. Albertans who suspect illegal tobacco production, packaging and/or trafficking are encouraged to contact AGLC’s Tobacco Enforcement Unit at 1-800-577-2522.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding with Alberta Treasury Board and Finance, AGLC enforces the Tobacco Tax Act and conducts criminal  investigations  related to the possession, distribution and trafficking of contraband tobacco products. In 2020-21, provincial revenue from tobacco taxes was $755 million.
