Rat Bastard 2.0 has decided the state belongs in the (children's) bedrooms of the nation.
A spokesman for Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould confirmed Monday the government is including the repeal of Section 43 of the Criminal Code of Canada, which protects parents — and to a lesser extent, schoolteachers — who use “reasonable” physical force against children as part of its greater pledge to implement all 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.See? I told you that all 94 recommendations were horrible. Now you're seeing what comes next.
Heather Smith, president of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, said she would be open to Section 43 being repealed so long as it was replaced with something that specifically protected educators who may feel the need to use physical force — as narrowly defined by the 2004 Supreme Court decision — in the course of doing their jobs.Ron Ensom is an insane anti-spanking advocate who is telling a blatent lie. So, I'm going to call him out.
"There is a high threshold of accountability for teachers . . . I see it as protecting children, but it protects teachers against frivolous allegations," said Smith.
Those who oppose Section 43 argue the de minimis principle would already protect parents and teachers against prosecution on trivial charges.
In other words, even if someone called a child welfare agency after witnessing a smack on the bottom, an investigation would be unlikely to go forward if there were no other signs of maltreatment, never mind reach the police and the courts.
“This criminalizing of parents is a scare tactic,” said Ensom.
Ron Ensom, you claimed that parents will not be criminalized if Section 43 of the criminal code is repealed. If it is repealed, the very first time in the news that I hear about a parent being charged for spanking their child I will go to where you work and beat the living shit out of you. Think of it as an appropriate punishment for your bad behaviour. You're a lying sack of shit, and I am going to hold you responsible for your lies.
