Gerard Comeau, the New Brunswick man that was caught transporting fourteen cases of beer and three bottles of booze from Quebec across provincial borders, has become a freedom fighter by accident.
In Canada, each province has their own rules. According to New Brunswick, Comeau’s haul was beyond the legal limit of twelve pints of beer and one bottle of liquor or wine that they allow across provincial borders.
Comeau’s booze was taken away and he was fined close to $300, but he decided not to pay it because he wanted his day in court to fight the law and fight for freedom.
After months and months of court battles, he was finally acquitted and all charges were dropped.
Now the plot thickens as the province of New Brunswick has appealed that decision and attempted to bypass the Court of Queen’s bench and head directly to the Court of Appeal.
After that request was denied, the government is now asking the Supreme Court, the highest court in Canada, to make a decision.
