    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    Interesting to see how the last week plays out. O'Toole was doing well but suddenly took a nosedive according to the CBC poll tracker. I don't think it's coincidental that O'Toole's numbers started plummeting and PPC numbers started surging right after O'Toole flip-flopped on firearms and said...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Well, clearly I was wrong about the strength of the case. I notice that at the bottom of the article it references two statements she gave to the MPs, so I suspect that that is what "cooked her goose" because otherwise it would seem incredibly difficult to prove who was responsible for the...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    I think that @Eaglelord17 said it well when he said that the use of s. 33 (which is essentially an admission that "we know this violates the Charter but we're doing it anyway") says a lot about the moral reprehensibility of a proposal. It's true that s. 33 is a thing, it has a 5 year lifespan...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Actually, children are not required to be sent to government schools. Homeschooling is completely legal in every province as far as I know.

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Historically the provinces that have mandated vaccines for school children (I believe only Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba do), there have always been exemptions so that would get around the argument of "force" probably. It seems that this is what they are doing now at the government level, plus...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    True it would probably scare the lower level people more ... and maybe it would be an empty gesture. Would probably be better as an argument on a lawsuit for battery.

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    As of right now, so actual laws have been put in place. But arguably a case could be made that they are all parties to the offence if someone wanted to go that route. It would be really interesting to start a private prosecution where someone was injured by a vaccine (and has good medical...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Maybe it depends on the units involved. At least back in the late 90s/early 2000s, I remember many a joint weekend exercise with local units. Often, we would field a company where two platoons were Royal Winnipeg Rifles, a third platoon was Cameron Highlanders, and then the enemy force was Fort...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Legally I don't think they can. It would be a very interesting legal battle if they tried. I think I know they can't, which is why I am seeing lots of releases were the "mandatory" vaccine actually means if you don't get the jab you have to be routinely tested which in my view is very different...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    How far do we take this argument though? One could say that any form of employment is "voluntary", but do people not have the right to a job? It would seem that they do, I don't think anyone would say that a prohibition on LGBTQ people in the CAF would be justified because it's a voluntary...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    In Canadian Criminal law, an assault is any application of force without the other person's consent. Stabbing someone with a needle, even if you didn't pin them down to do it, is an assault if the person did not consent to the injection. Consent is vitiated if it is coerced or acquired under...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    In my view you don't need to justify to us why you make a personal medical decision after weighing the pros and cons. This is certainly concerning. It bothers me from a perspective of principle, forcing/coercing people and it raises a red flag to me of why suddenly in the past two weeks we've...

    Montreal police ticket veteran bagpiper for carrying traditional knife

    Depends on what definition of weapon you are using. For the purposes of the Criminal Code, an item is only a weapon if it was "used, designed to be used or intended for use" in causing death or injury or threatening a person. I think the Criminal Code definition is a reasonable one. The...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I think we have very different ideas on what constitutes the state staying out of the bedroom. In my view the government should simply be silent/not pass any laws relating to the bedroom. The CPC has never proposed any laws, for example, outlawing certain sexual orientations for example. It's...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I think Brad Sallows summed it up well ... the CPC has actually changed (leftward) but at an insufficient pace for the media and others, thus it appears that they are shifting right whereas they are just slow. That said re: "stuck in the past" it's very true that politics are downstream of...
