The rally in support of the Maurice family will be held at the Okotoks courthouse on Friday, March 9 at 9am. A map to the location is below and some more details can be found at the facebook event page linked here.
Along with the account and email address below, a “fundrayzr” page has been set up for the Maurice family as well. Click here.
Edouard (Eddie) Maurice of the Okotoks area is facing three charges of aggravated assault along with firearm charges due to an event that happened on his property early in the morning of Saturday February 24.
As has become an unfortunate trend in Canada, the victim is treated as the criminal should they choose to defend their family and property from intruders.
Defending one’s property and family should not lead to imprisonment and possible bankruptcy.
While Maurice’s case works through the court system, a great deal of financial and emotional pressure will be placed on Maurice and his family. Legal fees and living expenses will become acute as time is consumed with his defense.
That is why friends and supporters are raising funds to ease these burdens on the Maurice family in the months to come in a trust fund.
A trust account at TD Bank has been set up by Travis Dunn (family friend) which will gather and hold funds on behalf of Maurice.
Donations can be made to any branch of TD to account number 8079-6142303 and e transfers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
A rally is being organized to show support for Eddie Maurice on the morning of Friday March 9 at the Okotoks court house where Maurice will be appearing that day. I will add details for the rally as I get them.
Financial support is welcome and critical.
Showing support through the rally and online helps too. We need to let the Maurice family know that fellow Albertans will stand by them even if the “justice” system may not.
Rural Albertans are tired of being victimized by criminals and being victimized by the system when they try to defend themselves. Rural crime rates are exploding and people can’t be expected to wait up to 40 minutes for aid to arrive. Self-defense of family and property is essential.
Please consider sending some funds to help the Maurice family and try to find time to come to the rally. This is so important to the Maurice family and all of us.
