So if there was no law …

“Toronto’s police chief is admitting there never was a five-metre rule that had people fearing arrest if they strayed too close to the G20 security perimeter.”

My question is – since there was no law for the detentions are they not guilty of kidnapping for each of the 900 detainees?

On Citizenship

The CBC is reporting that Abousfian Abdelrazik, a Canadian stranded in Sudan is deemed a security risk, denied a passport.

I do not believe a government is just that can decide to restrict the ability of a citizen to return home.

Word of the day: Disgusted.

Michael Geist – Copyright Bill’s Fine Print Makes For a Disturbing Read

Michael Geist – Copyright Bill’s Fine Print Makes For a Disturbing Read

Yesterday Industry Minister Jim Prentice and Canadian Heritage Minister Josee Verner delivered what amounts to a stinging rebuke to the Supreme Court’s copyright vision of public interest and balance. After months of internal discussions (though precious little public consultation), the government unveiled its much-anticipated copyright reform bill. Casting aside the concerns of major business, education, and consumer groups, the bill seeks to dramatically tilt Canadian law toward greater enforcement and restrictions on the use of digital content, leading Liberal Industry critic Scott Brison to warn that it could result in a “police state.”

Shorter POGGE: Bob Rae has no clue.

Peace, order and good government, eh?: WTF?

“Its incomprehensible to me that a document would establish an equivalency between the United States and Iran on the subject of the treatment of prisoners,” said Rae.

See, it is the violently stupid mind in his little head, as exemplified by such a foolish outburst, that led Rae to tarnish the good name of the NDP when he pretended to rule Ontario in the 90’s. See, Bob, the document established an equivalency between the United States and Iran on the subject of the treatment of prisoners only in-so-far as they both fucking torture people, Bob. Which they both do, Bob. Admittedly the Iranians wait before torturing you and raping you to death until you are in their country and our American friends have the courtesy of offering their services on a world-wide basis.

Liberals my ass.

Impolitical: The embarrassment goes international

Impolitical: The embarrassment goes international

Politicians and academics on Wednesday criticized the late night firing by the Conservative government of the head of Canada’s nuclear regulatory agency as a political attack on independent agencies.

OK, when a US newspaper expends any effort to report on a Canadian issue and actually sees through Bushlite’s spin, then you gots problems.
