Corey Hurren, of Bowsman, Man., was a "good community member," known for his friendly demeanour behind the local grocer's meat counter, and for cooking garlic sausage his customers raved about,

Looks like he's been eating his product a lot, do the Rangers not have fitness standards? He is a large man.

Latest from the RCMP ...
Statement by Deputy Commissioner Federal Policing Mike Duheme: Update on arrest at Rideau Hall
July 3, 2020


Good morning and thank you for joining me here today. I'd like to acknowledge that we are gathered on unceded Algonquin Territory. I will offer a few remarks in English and then in French followed by a short question and answer session.

To start, I want to make it very clear that there are many elements that I'm not in a position to speak to as the RCMP investigation is ongoing. I can tell you that a bail hearing has been scheduled for this morning and the accused will face multiple charges. As soon as the RCMP is in a position to do so, we will release the details of these charges.

I also want to emphasize that I will not speak to resources or any elements that may compromise our important Protective Policing mandate. This is not specific to this case – the RCMP never releases details regarding the protection of the Prime Minister, the Governor General or any other protectee.

That said, I want to stress that there was never any danger to the Prime Minister and his family, nor to the Governor General, as neither were on the grounds at the time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say how extremely proud I am of the professionalism our members on the scene showed in quickly and safely addressing this volatile and dangerous situation.

Here is what I can tell you about yesterday's events, which began at 6:30 and ended peacefully with an arrest at around 8:30.

As previously stated, on July 2nd at approximately 6:30 in the morning, a lone male breached the main pedestrian entrance of 1 Sussex Drive – at Thomas Gate – with a vehicle, which was disabled on impact.

National Capital Commission workers noticed the vehicle breach and notified the Commissionaires who approached the area and observed the male walking with what appeared to be a firearm. They notified the Rideau Hall Operational Command Center who immediately reached out to the RCMP's National Division Operational Command Center and our patrols on the ground.

Around 6:40, the accused was seen on the grounds of Rideau Hall by our members who are stationed there as part of our ongoing security detail. The entire facility was immediately placed on lockdown.

Our colleagues at the Ottawa Police Service and Emergency Medical Service were advised and were quick to support us. We thank them for their ongoing support.

At 6:42, the accused proceeded on foot on the grounds of Rideau Hall to the greenhouse, which is an onsite structure with limited public access.

At 6:43 our team confirmed they had visual contact on the suspect. Moments later, RCMP Members successfully engaged the suspect in a discussion. The objective was to de-escalate an obviously perilous situation with an armed suspect.

At 6:53 the suspect continued to engage in dialogue with our members, providing his name and other information that helped to open the channels of communication.

Our members relied on their training and instincts to continue speaking with the suspect until just before 8:30 am, at which point he was apprehended without any incident and taken into custody for questioning.

I can tell you a number of units and personnel were engaged in locating and containing the scene, including the Emergency Response Team. As a precaution, the Chemical, Biological, Radioactive, Nuclear, and Explosive team was also deployed to search and secure the suspect's vehicle. As I mentioned earlier, the Ottawa Police Service also supported this response.

I cannot emphasize enough how effective our members were in being vigilant, reacting quickly and using successful de-escalation techniques to resolve this highly volatile incident swiftly and without injury to anyone.

I can confirm that immediate measures have been put in place to increase security following yesterday's event. We will be conducting an after action review as well as further analysis on the overall security posture and technology in place.

As mentioned, the suspect is scheduled to be in court for a bail hearing today where charges will be sworn.

I am very proud of all our people and our partners who moved fast and acted decisively to contain this threat.

Thank you. I am happy to take some questions.

This, from yesterday ...
At 6:30 this morning, a lone male breached the main pedestrian entrance of 1 Sussex Drive (Thomas Gate) with his vehicle which was disabled on impact. The armed suspect then proceeded on foot on the grounds of Rideau Hall to the greenhouse, an onsite structure with limited public access, where he was rapidly contained by RCMP members who were on patrol in the area. While an RCMP member began dialogue with the suspect, the RCMP National Division Emergency Response Team was also dispatched and arrived shortly after 7 am. The armed suspect was apprehended shortly before 8:30 am without any incident and he was brought into police custody for questioning. As a precaution, the CBRNE team was also deployed to search and secure the suspect's vehicle. As previously stated, the Prime Minister and his family, as well as the Governor General, were not present on site at the time of the incident.

The suspect's identity will be confirmed as soon as possible. We can confirm that the individual arrested by the RCMP is a member of the Canadian Armed Forces. The RCMP is collaborating closely with the Canadian Armed Forces ...

[quote = Global News]Hurren has been charged with the following offences:

4 counts of careless use, storage and handling of a firearm
4 counts of contravention of transport regulation of a firearm
4 counts of possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose
1 count of possession of a restricted firearm, knowing its possession is unauthorized
1 count of possession of prohibited device, knowing its possession is unauthorized
1 count of possession at unauthorized place
4 counts of unauthorized possession in motor vehicle
2 counts of possession of prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition
1 count of uttering threats[/quote]

More at link

So from the list of charges, four distinct firearms including a prohib and a restricted, as well as separately a prohibited device. Also an uttering threats charge tacked on at the end. So, yeah... That could have been really bad.

So, according to the charges there were more weapons involved then the one rifle (long arm) reported in the media.

Chance are most will be dropped, tossed or plead away. I cannot find any reference in the CCC to: "2 counts of possession of prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition". All ammunition reference (except for below) refer to "prohibited ammunition" which is very uncommon.

Except: 89 (1) Every person commits an offence who, without lawful excuse, carries a weapon, a prohibited device or any ammunition or prohibited ammunition while the person is attending or is on the way to attend a public meeting.  However a defense lawyer will argue there was no public meeting

My guess is sloppy reporting and/or sloppy writing by the Public Affairs officer

Generally speaking when there are many charges, most will be shed in a plea deal. That doesn't mean the charges were incorrect or unwarranted, just that in the interest of judicial expediency, a deal is made.

I cannot find any reference in the CCC to: "2 counts of possession of prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition". All ammunition reference (except for below) refer to "prohibited ammunition" which is very uncommon.

Nope. S.95(1) Possession of prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition.

You can be safely confident that the charges were reviewed and drafted by investigators with appropriate experience and expertise.

There is no mention of 'public meeting' charges. To my non-expert but non-layman's eye, the list of charges is consistent with a person who drives somewhere with four firearms in the vehicle, does illegal stuff while there, and has ammunition that would have allowed him to use the firearms if he so wished.

The prohibited device charge is interesting, and would be distinct from the firearms themselves. That'll normally be a magazine with capacity in excess of what's allowed, or a suppressor.

The 'possess restricted knowing possession is unauthorized' suggests he only had a non-restricted PAL. Yet there's also a charge for possess prohib with ammunition, but no unauthorized possession of prohib. That could potentially be a result of a previously non-restricted firearm having now become prohib. They'll lay the charge for the possess with ammo, but respect the two year grace period for straight possession. I'm speculating on that though.

So yeah. Don't do what 'Donnie Don't' did.

Ah I see under a)

95 (1) Subject to subsection (3), every person commits an offence who, in any place, possesses a loaded prohibited firearm or restricted firearm, or an unloaded prohibited firearm or restricted firearm together with readily accessible ammunition that is capable of being discharged in the firearm, without being the holder of

(a) an authorization or a licence under which the person may possess the firearm in that place; and

(b) the registration certificate for the firearm.
