The Government of Alberta has sent instructions to the RCMP K-Division, the arm of the federal police force with authority in Alberta, to ignore direct orders from the federal Trudeau Government.

In a bid for assistance with the firearm confiscation program, federal Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino issued a direct request for support from the Kenney government in Alberta.

“I am writing to seek your support in implementing the buyback program,” Mendicino pleaded in a secret letter to Alberta’s government. He added that his office would be working directly with policing authorities to successfully implement the “buyback program.”

To make a long story short, the Alberta government declined.

Alberta’s Minister of Justice, Tyler Shandro announced today in a press conference that he will obstruct the gun grab by any means necessary. His office, in a coordinated response to Trudeau, issued orders to the K-Division expressly directing them to ignore federal orders on the matter.

Ignoring Federal Orders

“Alberta is not legally obligated and will not offer any provincial resources to the Federal Government as it seeks to confiscate lawfully acquired firearms,” Tyler Shandro shot back at the federal government today [emphasis in original].

“The decision to ban over 1,500 models of different firearms, simply because the “style” of the firearm was deemed to be aesthetically displeasing, is offensive and suggests to us that you are uninterested in meaningfully addressing gun crime,” the response reads.

“Further, I am concerned that federal officials have indicated that they will direct the RCMP to participate in the confiscation program. I am advising you that I am disputing such direction or intention to take such direction, as outlined in Article 23.0 of the Provincial Police Service Agreement.”

“Finally, preliminary estimates suggest that you will need to confiscate over 30,000 firearms in Alberta alone. We believe that Public Safety Canada does not have the capacity, wherewithal, or the resources to seriously attempt this effort. And, much like the long gun registry, we believe your efforts will fail in the face of opposition from the public.”

Commands to the Alberta RCMP

The blow to Trudeau didn’t stop there, as orders were dispatched to the K-Division headquarters at the same moment.

“I am writing to formally advise you that the confiscation program is not an objective, priority or goal of the province or the Provincial Police Service, and nor is such deployment ‘… appropriate to the effective and efficient delivery of police services…,’” Minister Shandro wrote to Deputy Commissioner Zablocki.

“Despite taking this step, I remain concerned that the Federal Government will direct the RCMP K-Division to serve as confiscation agents. To prevent this from happening, I am disputing such direction or intention to take such direction, as outlined in Article 23.0 of the Provincial Police Service Agreement,”

Outrage over Trudeau’s plans   

The executive order issued by Trudeau will inevitably criminalize firearms owners in huge numbers, spurring many legal firearms owners to speak out.

Despite the ban, which was issued nearly 900 days ago, “violent criminals continue to shoot up our cities [and] illicit guns still flow across our borders to gangs,” said firearms advocate Tracey Wilson.

Trudeau unilaterally issued a deadline of October 30th for any gun identified by his political staff to be turned in to the closest RCMP detachment.

The Government of Alberta has also announced that it will be joining a lawsuit against Trudeau’s proposed gun grab.

Over 2.2 million Canadians are legally licensed to own and trade firearms in the country.
