First up: Court ruling on parental discipline stuns, raises questions of right to raise children
If you deny your children access to TV or withhold their allowance, can they take you to court? And win?
That implausible scenario emerged after a judge in Gatineau sided with a 12-year-old girl who challenged her father after he refused to let her go on a school trip for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet.
Experts in family law and child welfare say they were dumbfounded by last Friday's ruling by Superior Court Justice Suzanne Tessier.
Okay, so you can't ground your kid for disobeying you. Got it.
Next: Anti-spanking bill passes through Senate
OTTAWA -- A bill that would expose parents to criminal prosecution for spanking their children has cleared the Senate, bound to reopen wounds still sore from a Supreme Court ruling four years ago.
Sponsored by Liberal Senator Celine Hervieux-Payette, the bill passed final reading in the Senate on Tuesday night.
Approval in the upper house followed debate and three days' of committee hearings at which criminal defence lawyers and the Canadian Bar Association argued against the criminalizing impact it could have on parents, as well as teachers and caregivers.
Okay, you can't spank your kid, check!
Next: No pulling kids from gay-friendly classes, Vancouver parents told
VANCOUVER - The Vancouver board of education says it plans to enforce a ministry policy that prevents parents from pulling students out of classes that deal with alternative sexuality.
A recent staff recommendation from the Vancouver board of education says parents can pull their children out of sensitive lessons in health classes because of religious or family beliefs, but can't opt their children out of gay-friendly lessons in any other classes.
Okay, schools must teach gay-friendly lessons, and your kids are not excused, there will be a test! Got it.
Maybe a Muslim should go to the BCHRC and file a complaint against the province, that would really put the BCHRC in a pickle, who do they pander to, the gay agenda or the Muslim religious beliefs?
So, as parents, we can't spank, ground, or shield our children from "alternative sexuality". When my kids do something wrong, what's left? I bet they would go ballistic if I made them read passages from the Bible, but as far as I can tell, that's still safe, until someone complains to the HRC's.
In the meantime, this little gem seems to be what parents who are feeling unloved can do to feel better:
Residents upset by swingers clubs
Now, residents are upset about a swingers club almost across the road from the strip club, called Menage a Quatre. Mr. Grimes's motion, passed by council, said the club is meant "to allow swingers to engage in multi-partner sexual acts."
Another club in the area, called HERS Night Club, advertises itself on its website as a venue for customers, who pay $5 to $60 admission, "to get away from the hypocrisy and double standards of the outside world and come live out sexual dreams and desires." (It also says on its site that it is moving to a new location.)
Did you know that it is perfectly legal for a 16 year old (thank goodness they raised the age of consent, it used to be legal for 14 year olds!) to go to a swingers club, as long as they don't serve liquor? I wonder if that's why the admission is only $5 for some patrons?
Oh, and how does this one grab you?
Que. police allege baby was victim of porn ring
Provincial police in Quebec allege that an infant was one of the victims in an international online child pornography ring.
"What we know is that most of the victims were of elementary school age and one of them was as young as a baby who was just a few months old," Sgt. Joyce Kemp told The Canadian Press Wednesday.
"They are children who had not yet reached puberty."
At least this it still illegal! Glad they caught those scumbags, may they rot in jail.
BUT, don't you dare ground your 12 year old daughter for posting their pictures on a dating site!!!!
Lefties think swingers clubs, bathhouses, legalized prostitution, and indoctrinating young kids with lessons on "alternative sexuality", is GOOD!
Spanking or grounding your kid, BAD!
Time for parents and grandparents to grab their pens and start protesting.
