Alberta Resident Fined $5,000 for Possessing Void Licence

A resident of Alberta has been fined for possessing a void deer hunting licence.

Robert Baier, of Stony Plain, Alberta, pleaded guilty to the charge and was fined $5,000.

Court heard that on November 4, 2013, Baier produced an Ontario resident deer hunting licence at a camp along the French River in Blair Township in the District of Parry Sound. As a resident of Alberta, Baier requires a non-resident hunting licence. Possession of the Ontario hunting licence was, therefore, void.

Justice of the Peace Susan Hilton heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Parry Sound, on June 10, 2014.

The Ministry of Natural Resources reminds the public that in order to qualify as a resident of Ontario you must reside in Ontario for six consecutive months during the immediately preceding twelve months.

To report a natural resource violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
