Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Canadian court to parents: You can’t ground your child

And the left wants us to emulate Canuckistan?  No thanks!  From AFP:

A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl’s grounding, overturning her father’s punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting “inappropriate” pictures of herself online using a friend’s computer.

The father’s lawyer Kim Beaudoin said the disciplinary measures were for the girl’s “own protection” and is appealing the ruling.

“She’s a child,” Beaudoin told AFP. “At her age, children test their limits and it’s up to their parents to set boundaries.”

“I started an appeal of the decision today to reestablish parental authority, and to ensure that this case doesn’t set a precedent,” she said. Otherwise, said Beaudoin, “parents are going to be walking on egg shells from now on.”

“I think most children respect their parents and would never go so far as to take them to court, but it’s clear that some would and we have to ask ourselves how far this will go.”

According to court documents, the girl’s Internet transgression was just the latest in a string of broken house rules. Even so, Justice Suzanne Tessier found her punishment too severe.

Beaudoin noted the girl used a court-appointed lawyer in her parents’ 10-year custody dispute to launch her landmark case against dear old dad.

Got a little slut for a daughter who likes to yap on the ‘net and post skin flicks of herself for the world to see?  Sucks for you, pal, because according to the court, you can’t do a damned thing about it.

So now the Canadian government gets to tell you how you can and cannot discipline your child.  Heck, why bother raising the kids, then?  Just pop out a rugrat or two, then turn them over the Nanny State to raise.  Let them change the diapers!

A judge stepped in to basically protect her fundamental right to be sexually violated by an adult.

  1. In the distance I hear the roar of a thousand red and green GMC clunker pedophile vans heading north.

  2. I guess Canada’s police state should be enough to scare sane Americans to combat these power hungry judges in our own country.

    I’m so glad I don’t live in Canada!

  3. It’s not Canadian Courts… its one provincial Court – of all provinces – Québec which if anyone outside of Canada knew anything about that province – would know that they just aren’t right.

    And in spite of our liberalism and our idiocyncracies… I am proud to be living in Canada – thank you very much.

  4. Blaming liberals is always a cop-out. Corrupt/rogue politicians and corrupt/rogue judges are to blame. And the same goes for the liberals who blame conservatives when things don’t go your way. Stop your complaining, and start taking action. That’s what the fucking electoral process is there for.

  5. So is there a followup? Did the Dad appeal and win?

  6. Québec is the most left-leaning province and is so proficient at separatist blackmail that it is essentially its own country already. As such, I wouldn`t attribute anything that comes out of that place as reflective on Canada as a whole.
