  1. Hey TSP, what does this mean to me? How would I use this if I were stuck in some sort of a legal situation? I have no knowledge of the legal world, so what sections are these referring to?

    1. Great question E! I’m sure many others are wondering the same thing.

      The sections listed are found under the Criminal Code of Canada. Each section identifies where you could find the charge in the Criminal Code of Canada and provides an explanation of the charge under the act. The reason that this information is useful to you is because it allows you identify what exactly you have been charged with.

      If you were charged under any of the sections above, you could consult a paralegal for further information. The paralegal would then provide you with the necessary knowledge to proceed with the matter. If you feel the paralegal is a good fit, you may ask the paralegal to represent you in the criminal matter.

      I hope that helps 🙂 Please do ask more clarification if need be.
