The police in Revelstoke were called after a concerned citizen reported that she observed a vehicle that appeared to be intentionally hitting construction zone pylons on the side of the road.  The police found the vehicle and pulled it over.  One thing led to another, and a firearm was discovered in the vehicle.  The client was charged with numerous firearm offences as a result.  A few weeks before trial, Mr. van der Walle sent the Crown his Notice of Constitutional Argument, alleging numerous violations of the client’s rights, including an illegal search,an illegal arrest, and violations of the right to counsel.  Much to her credit, the prosecutor saw the merit in Mr. van der Walle’s arguments and entered a stay of proceedings prior to the trial date.  Not guilty.  No trial necessary.
