Boyer is a pothead politician / promoter, has campaigned (unsuccessfully) as a candidate for the Marijuana Party of Canada (http://www.marijuanaparty.ca/), and is affiliated with the pot church CERI (viewtopic.php?f=47&t=9261), which is unsurprising given their common ‘interests’.
Beyond that, Boyer is one hell of a weirdo, even by Freeman standards.
First to the reported cases. Two report convictions for marijuana trafficking:
- R. v. Boyer, 2009 BCPC 278: http://canlii.ca/t/264b5
R. v. Boyer, 2007 BCPC 313: http://canlii.ca/t/1t69j
The 2007 decision is a sentencing decision by Judge Bagnall. It reveals that Boyer is a life-long criminal, with narcotics convictions ranging back to 1980 (para. 4). He is almost continually before the courts in the period running up to this case (para. 4). In this instance Boyer pled guilty, but before he did that he advanced a mixture of spurious arguments, some with an OPCA character (para. 13):
Mr. Boyer asserts that he does not “hold a person” under the Criminal Code (nor, presumably, under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act) because his birth was never registered in the usual fashion and he does not have a birth certificate. He says that this means that he holds a “void contract with society itself.” He says that he instead “holds a person” under the Elections Act. He argues that this means that, although Canadian laws apply to him, he can seek protection from prosecution for his beliefs in the fact of his membership in the Marihuana Party.
Like CERI, Boyer argues marijuana is sacred (para. 15):
Mr. Boyer’s beliefs were the subject of many of his comments. He believes that according to the Bible, God gave all “wind-pollinated herbs” as a gift to mankind. This category includes marihuana.
Interestingly, Boyer managed to convince the judge he is terminally ill (para. 18), which she considered was mitigating factor. Considering Boyer is still kicking six years later that terminal illness sure is a slow one… A four month custodial sentence was ordered (para. 23).
In 2009 it’s Judge Giardini’s kick at the can. Once more Boyer is found dealing drugs, but he does not plead guilty. He is, as we see, still alive, but has lymphoma which is “really bad”. Boyer advanced a number of constitutional arguments that simply rehash previous approaches that were summarily rejected (equality rights: paras. 32-35, 45-48; fair trial: paras. 36-39, 49-53), and then the novel argument that officers of the Marijuana Party of Canada were somehow exempted from the criminal prohibitions against marijuana related offences. That didn’t work either: paras. 40-43, 54.
The weird defence Boyer made was that he had Freeman-on-the-Land status as a consequence of his birth documentation, which is worth quoting in full (para. 23):
Mr. Boyer testified that he was born in 1951 and his birth was registered in King George’s Registry. According to Mr. Boyer his birth was never “transferred”. He said his father told him the Queen was not a true sovereign and therefore he ought not to apply for a birth certificate. As a result of a series of events (which I will not set out in this judgment), Mr. Boyer eventually obtained a copy of a Statement of Birth. However, he said this Statement of Birth is not a valid birth certificate. Mr. Boyer asserted that the Crown has no jurisdiction over him until he has a birth certificate. He also maintained that by inserting numbers on the Statement of Birth, (37300), the Queen “defaced” his birth certificate. Mr. Boyer testified he is “a free man on the land”. Mr. Boyer also testified that he does not have what is defined as a “person” in the Criminal Code or the Interpretation Act
Boyer was convicted, and received a six-month prison sentence: http://forums.cannabisculture.com/forum ... er=1571085
These judgments did not prepare me for the raw weirdness of Boyer’s actual materials. His Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/remarcablefoods) has the strong marijuana rights focus I anticipated but also indicated Boyer is very excited about the One People’s Public Trust ["OPPT"]. Then I started reading linked documents uploaded to his Scribd account (http://www.scribd.com/marc_boyer_2/documents).
Oh lordie, I was not ready for this. First, Boyer has this unique style in which many of his materials are illustrated with each paragraph accompanied by what I suspect was scrounged clip art. The first one I read was “My Freeman Declaration 1”, dated April 16, 2013 (http://www.scribd.com/doc/136311042/My- ... laration-1). He had indicated on his Facebook page he was very proud of this document.
The first couple pages of this document explains what Boyer meant when he told the provincial court judges that he did not have a regular birth certificate. His father, an accountant and military officer, had realized the “dark implications of getting a Birth Certificate.” and told his son to never do so, so that he would not be “a subject of a paper queen” and “a million dollar baby”. Boyer left Canada for 16 years when he discovered Social Insurance Numbers would be created, which made him a person who had not “SINned”. This leads Boyer to conclude, among other things, that he is “a major prophet of our end times”. His arrests are timed with volcanic eruptions. After failures of the courts to accord him the appropriate status, he went to ground.
But the end times are coming, via astronomical disaster, which is linked to the OPPT!
AND what impresses me is that it got a very big sign from the Heavens that it's a goodthing NAMELY: [Heather Tucci] filed on Christmas Day 2012, and 3 days later the Southern Cross had two massive gama busts; [to give some background] This is by far the closest galaxy to earth. It's a binary galaxy; it had 2 dancing black holes at it's centre. They collided, and the Centauri galaxy is toast, which means 2 big things. FIRST: Every dark force that has been interfering with humanity for the past thousands of years like the Archon, the reptilians, etc, say they come from that constellation, and that means they have been destroyed. That's good news. SECOND there is a series of massive shock waves heading this way at far faster than the speed of light. This has all the markings of a shaking like this world has ever seen and will never see again; this shock wave could be the fulfilment of Mat 24 and/or Luke 21and/or Isaiah 59 prophecy. This event looks like what's been called IN THAT DAY. Exactly as to prophecy, it's coming our way, and no one knows when it will hit, or what force it holds.
Ha ha! The SerpentKings are gonna be fried, gamma-ray style!
The document then devolves into various ramblings of Biblical and apocalyptic flavour, and reveals how what will decide the fate of all is whether the BAR admits it must serve the OPPT, or the forces of darkenss. Boyer’s role?
The fact is that the odds that i'm a major prophet of our end times is impossible to deny; I am NOT Jesus Christ. He comes shortly after me and frankly i can't see how this canhappen without it being over my dead body, and i simply don't have a problem with dying, and frankly no one should because we all become Spiritual flesh Ask yourself, [in hindsight] what are the odds, of me being the abnormal birth of 1Cor15? I says there that upon my death, I deliver 'the other everything' [the Creation] to God and Jesus descends on the world in a light [solar flare] and brings life to the dead once and for all, and it says there: don't worry about the one with the abnormal birth he becomes a Life Giving Spirit. I ask - If you knew you were this guy, would you be worried about being killed?
A theme in the “My Freeman Declaration” document is that Boyer had somehow thought the Scottish courts could save him from the despotism of Canada. And lo, here in his Scribd account are a series of documents that appear to be what Boyer had earlier in 2013 sent to the Lord Advocate in Scotland:
- NOTICE OF LIABILITY BY FILING THIS MANDAMUS, date March 20, 2013: http://www.scribd.com/doc/131479488/Fil ... d-Advocate
March 22, 2013 return email: http://www.scribd.com/doc/131860241/My- ... d-Advocate
Combination March 24, 2013 memo, March 25 email response from the Scottish officials, and Boyer’s March 25 answer: http://www.scribd.com/doc/132277265/Fin ... d-Advocate
Dear Mr Boyer,
Thank you for this additional information.
Unfortunately, the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Office is responsible for the prosecution of crime in Scotland and we only investigate crimes that have been reported to us from specialist reporting agencies such as the police. Form your e-mails it looks as if you are referring to an incident in Canada? If so you will need to take this up with them.
I am sorry I cannot be of further assistance.
Boyer’s reply, “IN RESPONSE TO YOUR MALFEASANCE”, is … err … forceful?
it's just what i thought - no one will uphold the Supremacy of God and rule of law because it's not their job, but then i'm with the god of Canada and you're with the god of Scotland [not the same thing] BUT THEN EVERYTHING HITLER DID WAS PERFECTLY LEGAL TOO,
With all due, sincerely GO F*** YOURSELF - you failed a big test so go to hell - REPENT or PERISH is a choice BUT upholding your oath is not. As i said GO F*** YOURSELF because you just f***ed the last freeman in the Commonwealth [F*** as defined as making A FREEMAN A SLAVE THRU FRAUD] You're the perverts who insisted the word itself must be banned that way it could never return As i keep repeating GO F*** YOURSELF you're going to hell because you simply refuse the offer to lift a finger to be with God. Albert Pike called himself the Order of the Scottish Right and you're from Scotland, I honestly have never met a Scot who is not a m***** f***ing Mason. I assume one exists, i just can't find one [as in any Scottish oath holder, because i have Scottish friends]
United we stand divided we fall is absolutely correct, but then that's the answer to Luke 11 where it asks 'how can you destroy the house that Albert Pike built without dividing it?' What impresses me is you refuse to refer me or forward to anyone who can help... Oh you can't think of one. Humm. GO F*** YOURSELF - In regard to the Order of the Garter = i don't think its evil i know it is and if that makes me your antichrist then that's just the way it is. I'm here to liberate mankind from yourself BUT you choose to uphold your demonic creed. GO F*** YOURSELF.
Sincerely without frivolity BUT with true vexatious intent
[Edited for profanities.]
There’s lots more documentation here. It’s often damned weird. I can only review a bit at a time before my eyes bleed.
Of course Boyer has also recorded videos of himself (http://www.youtube.com/user/increationwetrust/videos), many of which are staged with him wearing a maple leaf sweater and in front a marijuana-themed blanket.
There’s a ton of them. They too will induce eye-bleeding.
But Boyer at least looks the prophet part, I’ll give him that.
As a final note, Boyer makes reference to Longley's Loophole in some of his materials, but I don't think he actually is making that reference in an appropriate or accurate manner. I am presuming the "Longley" in question is Blair Longley, leader of the Marijuana Party of Canada. Longley and his Loophole are actually a pretty fascinating example of a taxpayer successfully identifying a genuine mechanism to reduce tax - would you care to discuss that for the forum, Burnaby49? I think they would be interested in the tale.
I think I need a drink.
