“Perhaps some good news for Eddie Maurice.
You see, the Kenney government is changing Alberta law so the good guy isn’t treated as the bad guy, a trespasser won’t be able to sue an individual for actions they take while protecting their property.
That is, as long as that person is not convicted of a criminal offence while protecting their property.
The announcement is Wednesday. Don’t be surprised if a happy Eddie Maurice is in the room.
You see, this is where the news gets better. The law will go back in time. The bad-guy-can’t-sue law will be the law effective Jan. 1, 2018.
As you know, Eddie Maurice is the guy sued by a trespasser who was up to no good on Eddie’s property and was hit in the arm by the ricochet of a warning shot.“
