You defend your property and probably your life with a firearm, YOU go to jail. But this is my favorite part here:
One man is in hospital and a property owner is in custody after shots were fired during an alleged theft in progress early Saturday, Alberta RCMP said later in the day.
It happened near Okotoks at about 5:30 a.m., police said in a release, adding officers were on scene within minutes.
"The owner of the residence encountered two individuals rummaging through his vehicle(s). During the confrontation with the individuals, there were an unknown number of shots fired from a firearm. The suspects then fled the scene."
Police are cautioning property owners to call them rather than "pursue or engage with suspicious individuals."
