Criminal Law In Canada
The criminal law of Canada is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government. The power to enact criminal law is derived from section 91(27) of the Constitution Act, 1867.
Ontarios Official Flower: the Trillium
Jan 28th 2011, Expendable/Control/Fear
I don't know whether it has been a Platonic philosophy that defines the individual as expendable. Maybe it has come from the Communist Chinese, perhaps from people taking the ethos behind slavery and redefining them as service to a greater power alone. Come what may, the snakes and parasites of commerce seem to be getting their way with what has been cherished by all Civil Rights groups for hundreds of years. The death of the individual (and of the individuals' rights and freedoms) in favour of cheap and even criminal commerce seems to be in order, along with the dwindling of numbers of our Provinces' flower, the Trillium and the disappearance of bees.
In the past week, several human rights violations have been aired upon our local news channel (CTV). I have just seen a perfectly beautiful young woman on TV, who has appealed through media services about a Human Rights Commission decision. It appears that she shaved her head in solidarity with a relative who had cancer. Working as a waitress, she was wearing scarves or wigs to hide the baldness. In Ontario, many people shave their heads to donate to a cancer drive; it is very standard and an act of humble charity. What happened is that the restaurant owner fired her, saying that the shaved head was inappropriate. The Human Rights Commission , when appealed to, claimed that a person could be fired if the business did not like their looks. This kind of bizarre social prejudice has been condemned by just about all Canadians for nearly fifty years, and it is unheard of.
Earlier in the week, the same CTV aired an article about the death of human privacy, and of freedom of speech. A man who worked as a childrens' athletic instructor was fired for writing something fairly mundane and civil in the companys' Facebook. After the terrorism in the US, leaving six dead, and many wounded, including a congresswoman, this man had written that the congresswoman was "awesome", and only a mildly conservative Democrat and that terrorism like this must, of course, be addressed, seriously, by the law.
The organizations' director subsequently fired him for espousing an opinion that was slanted. Even though most people would see this as a regularly instructive moral opinion, and would most likely share the sentiment, adding (in Canada) that tighter gun regulation was in order, the company claimed that it was their business policy to espouse no opinion one way or the other, so the man was fired. He was rehired, however, but he had gone to the press. If the press does not back freedoms of speech and of the press it might as well drop dead.
During this same CTV article, a young woman, when interviewed, said that there essentially was no freedom of speech in industry; business owners or management are allowed to read even private facebook entries, in order to estimate their employees' concepts and directions, probably in case of industrial espionage. Apparently one does not dare discuss any polity nor spiritual endeavour without becoming subject to cries of 'inappropriate', or to actual discriminatory procedure.
Having gone through a proven case of employment discrimination made by Ontario government, and after seeing what a waste of time the chuckleheads are who support wrongful endeavour by some of its employees, because they were born to incestuousness and the steaming slum of rightist bigotry as if it were a silver spoon held to their nose, and because people are "there", to do with what they wantonly will, I could, literally, wite a book about the insanity and illegality of government process.
Today, I am willing to bet that there is more than one actual Nazi in Ontario Human Rights, or the system just does not support real civil rights cases anymore.
Our Bill of Universally held Human Rights is no more than "there", to pick and despoil, probably by the same people who have uprooted the trilliums and eaten the bees. What next - agreed upon flogging in the streets, so some politicians' fatuous wife can sufferless form diabetic frigidity?
So, go ahead, feel free to read this, too. I's posted in public because youa re the same people out there; industrialists who steal, torture and condemn the very people whom you have immiserated. Some of you enjoy our earnings that you've sufficiently theived for the purchase of large amounts of guns and weapons. You can't stop all of us decrying your right to keep somepeople down, all of the time. You'll never stop humans form evolving in civil and moral ways, rather than to march to your primitivism and either techno or realistic cannibalism, either.
On April 25, Gregory Despres arrived at the U.S.-Canadian border crossing at Calais, Maine, carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with what appeared to be blood. U.S. customs agents confiscated the weapons and fingerprinted Despres. Then they let him into the United States.
The following day, a gruesome scene was discovered in Despres' hometown of Minto, New Brunswick: The decapitated body of a 74-year-old country musician named Frederick Fulton was found on Fulton's kitchen floor. His head was in a pillowcase under a kitchen table. His common-law wife was discovered stabbed to death in a bedroom.
Despres, 22, immediately became a suspect because of a history of violence between him and his neighbors, and he was arrested April 27 after police in Massachusetts saw him wandering down a highway in a sweat shirt with red and brown stains. He is now in jail in Massachusetts on murder charges, awaiting an extradition hearing next month.
At a time when the United States is tightening its borders, how could a man toting what appeared to be a bloody chain saw be allowed into the country?
Bill Anthony, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the Canada-born Despres could not be detained because he is a naturalized U.S. citizen and was not wanted on any criminal charges on the day in question.
Anthony said Despres was questioned for two hours before he was released. During that time, he said, customs agents employed "every conceivable method" to check for warrants or see if Despres had broken any laws in trying to re-enter the country.
"Nobody asked us to detain him," Anthony said. "Being bizarre is not a reason to keep somebody out of this country or lock them up. ... We are governed by laws and regulations, and he did not violate any regulations."
Anthony conceded it "sounds stupid" that a man wielding what appeared to be a bloody chain saw could not be detained. But he added: "Our people don't have a crime lab up there. They can't look at a chain saw and decide if it's blood or rust or red paint."
Sgt. Gary Cameron of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police would not comment on whether it was, in fact, blood on the chain saw.
On the same day Despres crossed the border, he was due in a Canadian court to be sentenced on charges he assaulted and threatened to kill Fulton's son-in-law, Frederick Mowat, last August.
Mowat told police Despres had been bothering his father-in-law for the past month. When Mowat confronted him, Despres allegedly pulled a knife, pointed it at Mowat's chest and said he was "going to get you all."
Police believe the dispute between the neighbors boiled over in the early-morning hours of April 24, when Despres allegedly broke into Fulton's home and stabbed to death the musician and 70-year-old Veronica Decarie.
Fulton's daughter found her father's body two days later. His car was later found in a gravel pit on a highway leading to the U.S. border. Despres hitchhiked to the border crossing.
After the bodies were found on the afternoon of April 26, police set up roadblocks and sent out a bulletin that identified Despres as a "person of interest" in the slayings, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The bulletin caught the eye of a Quincy police dispatcher because it gave the suspect's Massachusetts driver's license number, missing a character. The dispatcher plugged in numbers and letters until she found a last known address for Despres in Mattapoisett. She alerted police in that town, and an officer quickly spotted Despres.
In state court the next day, Despres told a judge that he is affiliated with NASA and was on his way to a Marine Corps base in Kansas at the time of his arrest.
After the case was transferred to federal court, Despres' attorney, Michael Andrews, questioned whether his client is mentally competent.
Fulton's friends in Minto, a village of 2,700 people, told the New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal that he was a popular musician, a guitarist known as the "Chet Atkins of Minto" and a 2001 inductee in the Minto Country Music Wall of Fame.
