    Anti-Olympic signs could mean jail: rights group

    CBC News - British Columbia - Anti-Olympic signs could mean jail: rights group

    Quote Originally Posted by CBC
    A proposed B.C. law would allow municipal officials to enter homes to seize unauthorized and possibly anti-Olympic signs on short notice, civil libertarians say.

    Violators could be fined up to $10,000 a day and jailed up to six months, the B.C. Civil Liberties Association said Friday.

    The proposed law was introduced Thursday as a bill to amend the Municipalities Enabling and Validating Act.

    The government said in a statement that the changes will "provide the municipalities of Vancouver, Richmond and Whistler with temporary enforcement powers to enable them to swiftly remove illegal signs and graffiti during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games."
    I'm mostly posting this to show the people of the U.S. the bullet they dodged when Chicago didn't get the Olympics. Everywhere the Olympics go, tyranny follows. The Vancouver municipal government will basically be instituting martial law during the events, and laws like the above are being signed into effect without the consent of third party rights groups.

    The rich elites behind the Olympics have more sway over government than even the Constitutions of countries. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is being willfully ignored while anti-free speech laws are signed into temporary effect for the games.

    Supreme Court challenges have been made but who knows if they'll have any effect.

    Things like this were tried in Salt Lake City. Didn't take.

    Particularly when the Chinese government demanded that Taiwanese flags be removed from display at local people's homes.

    What!? That is messed up !
    Hope the Supreme Court challenges are successful.


    BTW, unrelated, but I was interested reading last week about a Supreme Court challenge to prostitution laws, resting on a violation of the right to life in the Charter. I wonder how that one will turn out!

    What's Anti-Olympic?
    That's like anti-football.

    And it makes you just love how Canadians trash talk the US.

    Why is this a surprise Canada can jail preachers who say homosexuality is a sin. Pretty soon there speaking out against the government or having anti-war protest could be illegal because the government there could probably declare themselves and the military a class of citizens/subjects that need special protections from evil hate mongers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
