From the start an out of touch Quebec Premier and an unrealistic Liberal government has misread the Quebec students. Montreal now is the scene rather of daily increased protests.. More and more persons now are protesting the unacceptable, too controversial law Bill 78 aimed at limiting protests against tuition hikes. Government officials worried about the fast-approaching tourist season have too hastily introduced Bill 78 but it severely and falsely restricts the fundamental rights of all Quebecers to freedom of speech, protest.. The draconian legislation also provides for fines for anyone who prevents someone from entering an educational institution. The student groups, labour federations and a wide range of other organizations rightfully now do claim the law is unconstitutional and a violation of basic rights.
Bill 78 is excessively punitive, restricts freedom of assembly and muzzles free speech through the threat of pulling student association funding.
MONTREAL – three main student groups behind a boycott of classes that is in its 15th week formed a common front Friday with more than 100 unions and individuals against the Quebec government’s emergency legislation, BILL 78, asking the court to strike down the bill that restricts protests, arguing that it infringes on fundamental freedoms. While the court challenge intends to quash Bill 78 permanently, the groups also filed a motion to have key articles in the law suspended until a decision is rendered on the constitutionality of the law. “It’s the biggest constitutional challenge in Quebec history.”
Bill 78 was adopted last week by Premier Jean Charest’s Liberal government in hopes of quelling some of the recent months’ unrest over Quebec’s plan to hike tuition fees But it seems to have had the opposite effect. People from all walks of life, who hadn’t been involved in the nightly student demonstrations and didn’t necessarily support the student strike, have joined in, denouncing the law as trampling on fundamental rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association. Civil libertarians and constitutional experts have weighed in…
The law suspends the academic term in progress and provides for when and how classes are to resume, as well as restricting protests. “The new law does put a limitation on free expression. The question is whether or not that limitation is reasonable.”The second motion filed Friday asks for the entire law to be struck down because it violates both the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, as well as the Quebec Charter. the fines for not respecting the law are exorbitant and could instill enough fear that a person might avoid all demonstrations altogether. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Students+unions+join+forces+against+Bill/6681886/story.html

MONTREAL— A peaceful evening march that began with people banging pots and pans in support of protesting students ended in the early morning hours with police kettling demonstrators and arresting 400 of them after officers were pelted with projectiles. Montreal wasn’t the only city to have roundups Wednesday night. There were also mass arrests at student protests in Quebec City and Sherbrooke. Kettling is a police tactic widely used in Europe where riot cops surround demonstrators and limit or cut off their exits. It has been widely criticized because it often results in the scooping up of innocent bystanders as well as rowdies. A recent report by Ontario’s police watchdog blasted Toronto police for their use of kettling during the G20 summit two years ago, saying they violated civil rights, detained people illegally and used excessive force. The Montreal demonstration was the 30th since the student protest against tuition fee increases began more than three months ago. http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/1183346–around-400-people-arrested-as-police-use-kettling-in-latest-montreal-student-protest?

Medicare is not the place to help doctors make more money but a place to help the sick citizens
Look I am getting realy tired of those too many bad pretentious family doctors, charge card happy quacks is what I call them. Those especially pretentious doctors who especially get a kickback from the local pharmacy that gives them a subsidized rent, and more kickbacks even on how much drug they had prescribed. The doctors even get a report from the pharmacy telling the doctor when the patients prescriptions are about to expire so they the Doctors can call their patients. Then these same doctor make money from the referral fees to other doctors and yes to the private clinics..All this would not be do disastrously immoral if the doctor could have helped me in the first place, but rather mostly too often the doctor did not know what was wrong with me and he or she wanted to do a series of test at a the private clinic, most test were not needed even, tests done mainly to increase his or her earnings, test not realy to help me, when rather next all I had to realy do was go to good triage at the local hospital and they did it all one place now too. I have said it before if you have an abnormal, serious medical problem do not waste your time going to the local family doctor, charge card happy doctor for sure. No wonder medicare is so costly these days..
THIS SAME CLEARLY PRETENTIOUS QUACK EVEN MISSED IT BY A WHOLE MILE.. HE WAS EXAMINING MY FOOD CONSUMPTION TRACTS WHEN THE PROBLEM WAS INSTEAD A CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE. AS THE HOSPITAL IMMEDIATELY DISCOVERED IT
