Needed: 8 – 10 members to come out and help with setting up the backstops
Ryan Keefe is asking for volunteers to complete the backstops on the range. This work needs to be done!
I realize this is short notice but Ryan would like to have 8 to 10 members to help assemble the new rifle rang back stops. Once backstops are constructed we will need a skid steer to move them into place and fill with sand. Bring your cordless driver and work gloves!!
When: Saturday morning (August 29) 8:30ish
If you are able to come help please let Ryan know at 204-268-0180 text or call

Thank you to all who came out last night to pick rocks on both ranges. We had about 25+ members who did a lot of work. With the help of one member’s Gator and trailer, another’s quad and trailer plus Marty Botincan’s little Bobcat both ranges are looking great.
We have some signage to post, the new pistol area firing line pad to form. We’ll be notifying the membership with the next work crew which will be a smaller one due to the nature of specialized work that has to be done to complete this last portion.
We’re almost there folks!
Stay warm and cover any vegetation/flowers for the next few days, starting tonight. It’s cold out there!

THE CCFR HAS COMMENCED LEGAL ACTION OPPOSING THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT’S FIREARMS BAN
May 26, 2020, Calgary, AB
Today the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights filed an Application in Federal Court in opposition to the recent firearm ban announced by the minority Liberal government on May 1. This ban was brought into effect by an Order in Council made by the Governor in Council amending the regulation that classifies firearms in Canada. The CCFR’s Application asks the Federal Court to strike down the amended regulation on the grounds that:
1. The regulation is invalid, unlawful, and outside of the scope of powers the Criminal Code could have delegated to the Governor in Council;
2. The regulation and the means by which is was created and amended is unconstitutional;
3. The regulation and its effect breaches each of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Bill of Rights, and section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982;
4. The exercise of the regulation-making power by the Governor in Council was and is irrational, and contrary to clear fact and all available evidence; and
5. Specifically, the firearms purported to be banned by this Order in Council are obviously suitable for hunting and sporting purposes in Canada, because that is exactly what we have been doing with them for decades.
Following the Order in Council, the RCMP began making amendments to the Firearms Reference Table (“FRT”), changing the classification of hundreds of firearms to “prohibited”, thereby unilaterally writing law and creating criminals out of law-abiding Canadians. Accordingly, the CCFR is asking the Court to declare that these purported “bans by FRT” are of no force or effect, both for similar reasons as applied to the regulation above, as well as the fact that the RCMP simply have no legal power to unilaterally make laws reclassifying firearms in Canada and creating criminals out of Canadians. This is especially troubling given that the RCMP aren’t even notifying the affected Canadians about these unilateral reclassifications.
Because the firearms affected by the regulation and the “bans by FRT” are in fact reasonable for use in Canada for hunting and sporting purposes, the CCFR is asking the Court for a declaration of that, and also for a consequential declaration that all of these firearms are to be deemed to be classified as non-restricted for all purposes, and therefore may be enjoyed by Canadians for both hunting and sporting purposes.
In order to protect the interests of Canadians from irreparable harm in the interim, the CCFR is also asking the Court to grant an injunction staying the effect of both the regulation and the “ban by FRT”, until these matters can be properly adjudicated.
This court action is the first in a series of actions planned by the CCFR to defend the rights, freedoms and liberty of law-abiding Canadians.
