This article raises several concerns/issues. First, telling a lie or denying the
truth when asked about having a weapon seems to go beyond a temporarylapse in
judgment. Is lying and being deceitful typical behavior for him? Second, raising
money for cancer awareness. It seems a joke that people who do what they enjoy,
in this case, riding motorcycles, act as if they are doing a hardship and ask
money from people to support their "awareness ride". Why not do work for
cancer awareness. Help people who have cancer. or clean up the roadways or
something besides what he obviously enjoys doing. Third, if he is expecting a
4-6 month jail sentence, and he has been there since July and he has to be there
until January 2013, why not simply plead guilty and stay in jail at Canadian
taxpayer expense, and get his well-deserved jail term over. Kudos to the
Canadian officers for performing their jobs extremely well. Something about this
guy’s behavior must have raised their suspicions.
He intially lied and then told the truth. That should be taken into
consideration. Canada's gun laws are to restrictive. Confiscate the gun
and let him go.
