Timothy Lee Felger v. Her Majesty the Queen (October 17, 2014)
Natasha Kaye Healy v. Her Majesty the Queen (October 17, 2014)
The appellant operated a store and went to some lengths to ensure that police did not enter the premises without a warrant. The appellant posted a sign saying that police were not allowed entry. He also had his lawyer send a letter to the chief of police indicating that no member of the police was allowed onto the premises. Undercover officers attended the store and purchased marijuana from the appellant. The trial judge excluded the evidence on the basis that it constituted a search that infringed the appellant’s rights under section 8 of the charter. The appellant was acquitted of trafficking in marijuana.
