NOVEMBER 18, 2018 – Filed ATIP request for the current number of Authorization to Carry Permits issued by Province
FEBRUARY 20, 2019 – RCMP responds but withholds the number of Protection of Life Carry Permits issued advising that release of that number ‘could reasonably be expected to threaten the safety of individuals’.
MARCH 22, 2019 – Filed a complaint with the Information Commissioner of Canada about the exemption used by the RCMP to withhold the number of ATCs issued for Protection of Life.
MAY 2, 2019 – Received the RCMP reply dated April 25, 2019 with the current number of ATCs issued for Protection of Life = ONE.
[…] MAY 2, 2019 – RCMP REPORT ISSUING ONE PROTECTION OF LIFE CARRY PERMIT […]
What were the other reasons to permit people to carry?
Hi Colin: All the ATCs issued by province are in the 3 additional pages attached to my post.
In my restricted PAL course my instructor who was former police and peace officer said it was a judge who had sentenced a high up in organized crime. I believe he was a judge in AB or ONT.
I wonder if the one person is a Liberal MP?
Whoever it is Peter, they have friends in very high places for sure.

So, self protection is a valid reason to own a firearm.
Not according to Allan Rock in 1995 but looks like one person in Canada convinced the police in some province to issue one.

Wow. So only one person’s life in the entire country has been deemed worthy of self-defense with a firearm?!
Unless I’m reading it wrong they still wouldn’t tell you in which province, as if it would cause a danger for the individual to know what province they live in.
Right you are Ken. I’ll asked them again for the Province the permit was issued in but they did not provide it. I’ll have to let the Information Commissioner dig that out of them.
