The bill not being law isn't the problem. It's this statement which should bother law abiding citizens and politicians.

Quote:
She said she is passionate about her right to protest, and recently attended a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Calgary, so she and some of her friends from university emailed their MLAs to voice their concerns.

"It propelled a lot of us to send emails to our specific representatives, just stating that we oppose the bill and believe it infringes on our rights as Canadians to be out and vocalizing what we believe in," she said.


So, given this bill's dynamics her position seems to be that she and her friends should have the right to protest even when those protests are illegal, break the law, cost consumers and taxpayers money and disrupt peoples lives.

This bill isn't denying her the right to protest what it's doing is denying her and her friends the right to unlawfully protest and carry out illegal actions.

Sadly, this me me me and screw the rest of you attitude has become the anthem to a large portion of our population and is a direct result of all levels of gov't failing to enforce the laws during previous illegal protests and blockades.


I was told here years ago by someone on the left that "we were a nation of laws" well apparently "were only a nation of laws" if you want it to be and if this type of attitude continues we're going to end up in a complete state of anarchy.

The bill is almost certain to be tossed on appeal in court. It's just the UCP stunt-booking again for the mouth-breathers about how "tough" they are. "Zero tolerance! Hoorah!". :roll:

The right to protest is constitutionally protected, and no province has the authority to make laws forbidding it.

Illegal acts were already illegal, and peaceful protest is most effective if it disrupts people's lives.

That said, defining 'critical infrastructure' broadly so that it can apply to a sidewalk or street means the law will be challenged in court and be found unconstitutional. And the arrogance to say the bill has passed when it has not received final reading is just par for the course for the Kenney government.
