Say what? As absurd as some of our court decisions seem to be, the Euro-wannabes north of the border have trumped us when it comes to sheer lunacy (H/T Doug Bandow):
A recent court decision in Canada should send chills down every parentâ€™s spine. The ruling is so out of bounds that the news story sounds like a parody â€” but it isnâ€™t. A Canadian judge ruled that a 12-year-old girl was â€œexcessivelyâ€ punished when her father told her she could not go on a school camping trip because she had broken rules for use of the Internet.
O Canada, the nation with tribunals that enforce politically-correct government censorship of speech, now gives us micromanagement of parental responsibilities. Wherever Canada is, I fear the United States is not far behind. Let’s stand up against the nanny state!
Who do you want appointing federal judges next year: Barack Obama or John McCain? Sobering thought.
