New Brunswick appeals beer-freedom fighter’s acquittal sending case to Supreme Court

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.

Watch my video to see where things stand as I provide an update on the proceedings.

Then Cameron Robock’s “friends” would be doubly happy if the NB government doubled the tax?

My friends from there say they hope that scum bag goes to jail. As they pay taxes with respect, and getting alcohol with your money at the same time rocks.

Of course they appealed!… Hosing the local populace via liquor mark-ups is a way of life in the Maritimes to gain tax revenue… In New Brunswick’s case, the idea of raising local revenue by drilling and fracking for the riches under their very own feet is “outre”???
