Summer Fun Food Drink Chapter 3 My New Canada

Canada as weekend Police State Toronto G8 G20

Yup. Pretty much sums up the New Canada.

A gentle reminder for those folks who will be celebrating Canada Day in the Victoria area – and leaving their vehicles at home – and doing the right thing by taking cab or B.C. Transit to their destinations…

You do not have to consent to a search of your person or belongings while celebrating Canada Day. You have every right to move from place to place in the Capital region with sealed wine, beer or liquor on your person. Open liquor is obviously another matter.

If you are unsure about this, read the 2008 report within the Commission for public complaints against the R.C.M.P.

This applies to the Victoria police, the transit authority as well as other regional and community law enforcement agencies.
