A PEACE BOND CAN BE IMPOSED ON YOU BASED ONLY ON UNPROVEN ALLEGATIONS
Refusal to sign a section 810 bond can result in imprisonment for up to 12 months. It is a criminal offence to violate the conditions of a section 810 peace bond.
Section 810.2 (1)
Any person who fears on reasonable grounds that another person will commit a serious personal injury offence, as that expression is defined in section 752, may, with the consent of the Attorney General, lay an information before a provincial court judge, whether or not the person or persons in respect of whom it is feared that the offence will be committed are named.
Section 810.1 (1)
Any person who fears on reasonable grounds that another person will commit an offence under section 151, 152, 155 or 159, subsection 160(2) or (3), section 163.1, 170, 171 or 172.1, subsection 173(2) or section 271, 272 or 273, in respect of one or more persons who are under the age of 16 years, may lay an information before a provincial court judge, whether or not the person or persons in respect of whom it is feared that the offence will be committed are named.
The courts have wide ranging powers to impose a common law peace bond on Canadians, regardless of whether or not a crime has been committed.
Most often these are imposed based on the (fabricated and delusional or vindictive) allegations of women who are out to get even with an ex spouse.
Peace Bonds started around 1892 as a codified version of the common law peace bond available to magistrates to order individuals likely to commit property offences to "keep the peace".
Peace Bonds have expanded and now also target individuals (i.e. men) who might commit violent or sexual offences. Does not matter if they have or have not committed a crime. Men are being punished because someone says they MIGHT do something. Guess who is making these accusations? No prize for right answer.
Both 810.1 and 810.2 are supposedly designed to be preventative and not punitive. That is nonsense. Any restriction on your liberty is punitive.
