Of course you are going against the whole unionized day care industry which wants women (or men) to go to work as soon as possible and have someone else raise the children.

Rebuild traditional marriage?

Here is another option.

Punish the judiciary for ramming SSM down the throats of electorates who clearly are uncomfortable with it.

A while back, out of curiosity I looked up how many sites, blogs, ect that I could find that were harshly critical of lawyers and judges in general. Take note I said "in general", not just referring to a specific case or cause but critical of the people & professions themselves.

Turns out there are quite a few. These outcries need to be encouraged so they become louder, loud enough that those in power can no longer ignore them.

This has already begun and has been felt by the judiciary. TERRIFIC!!

A few years ago SCOC chief justice Antonio Lamer pompously decreed "This judge bashing must stop!"

Well, I would say to the pontificating old fart, Not only should it continue but it should increase ten thousand-fold.

A couple of years ago I was at a Christmas party. One of the guests, a person I had never met before was introducing himself. When asked what he did for a living he reluctantly and timidly admitted he was a lawyer. He was almost apologizing for it. I didn't let on how pleased I was with his awkwardness. I thought "If he is ill at ease in admitting he's a lawyer this is a step in the right direction."

In our community a near-to-retirement police officer berated a judge publically in the courtroom for freeing a felon on the flimsiest of excuses. He was ordered to apoligize and refused. He was fined and several members of the community offerred to pay his fine for him.

It was clear whho's side the public was on.

The anger and sentiment is there. Public censure must be encouraged to grow until judges feel the pressure and start exhibiting a healthy dose of humility.

Then maybe they will have some respect for the public they now dismiss and scorn so greatly.

I know that PM Harper is against gay marriage and he said that if he was elected he would make sure it didn't happen. I suggest that we give him a chance in 2015 to make good on that promise.

old white guy

this is just one more nail in the coffin. moral breakdown of society is followed by the slow and steady demise of said society. it will not be reversed and more perversion will be accepted.

Agree with what John says above. Judges have too much power and are out of control. Kind of ironic that the anti-American Trudeau brought in the Charter of rights and freedoms (rights and freedoms we already had BTW)which made our system much more like America in which the country is basically run by judges and lawyers.

A good way to start needling judges would be writing letters to the editors of mainstrean newspapers condemning and ridculing the Canadian Judicial Council (CJC). This body, in addition to its other duties investigates and disciplines judges for wrongdoing.

Anybody want to bet $10 on how often they find a judge guilty? ----- Nah, didn't think so.

No suprise. - NEVER!

Recently a presiding diciplinary judge stated: "These proceedings will not be a witch hunt nor will they be a whitewash."

If he had to qualify the proceddings with that preamble then you know he must suspect that the public doesn't trust him.

Good.

P.S. Anybody wanna bet $10 on the verdict of the proceddings? --- Nah, didn't thinks so either.

Judge on trial was deemed pure as the driven snow. Big surprise huh?

Frank

Lol...you guys think Harpervwill kill gay marriage? He has said he will keep gay marriage. Do you think he is lying? Or is he deceiving Canadians. I think he is being honest when he says the Charter protects gay rights. You guys are delusional.
