Article.

Quote:
"We don't see a rational or functional link between the destruction of the data and decriminalization," Dufour said, emphasizing that the registry was the creation of a partnership with Ottawa.


And on that basis you lose, because the only reason it was held to be legal for the Federal Govt. to do it in the first place was because it was a criminal offence not to register. Property laws are provincial, other criminal laws are federal, so for the federal govt. to regulate property there has to be some compelling public safety reason.

So saying they don't care if it's a criminal offence anymore sinks their argument, imv.

I think they know they're going to lose, it's just a song and dance for political reasons.

And here is the data they're trying to save.

Québec court sides with Québec government.

Some of the comments in the ruling are ridiculous, the judge lists various things he thinks the registry did with no evidence to back it up. He's a judge, not a criminologist.

He waffles on at great length about how federalism works and thus Québec is entitled to the data but at this point in time Québec hasn't enacted their own registry so on what legal basis are they entitled to it? The federal law is repealed.

So onward to federal court then.
