Hilarity: Canadian Court Overrides 12-Year-Old's Grounding

I reckon that in Canada, when one makes a suggestion that a spoiled child make a "federal case" out of something, the declaration should be taken seriously from here on out:

OTTAWA (AFP) - A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl's grounding, overturning her father's punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting "inappropriate" pictures of herself online using a friend's computer.

Seriously, if Canada's legal system is this desperate for "something" to do, perhaps it's time to look at letting some of the "dead-weight" Magistrates go?

Maybe we can even start with Justice Suzanne Tessier? She obviously has too much time on her hands to be piddling around at the Bench all day.

Whoa—I'm a day late and a dollar short here? How in the heck did that happen! Thanks to dpud for pointing my faux pas out (with bonus French for Quebec's sake, of course).

Can I now say that I think the Northern Border is now more dangerous to our culture than the Southern Border? That is one of the most disgusting and completely illogical and wholly illegal rulingprecedent I have ever seen.

Brian, you are right. These judges must not have anything better to do... like make sure laws are protected and obeyed. What law was broken here to have a case heard in front of this judge.

And, if this was like America, having a case ruled in Superior Court would mean that this case was heard in lower courts, right?

Via HotAir: "And wins, natch. Look at it this way: If they’re not going to recognize free speech rights, why would they recognize parental rights? "

AMEN Brothers! If they don't value profound human right of free speech, then you know they will not recognize parent's rights.

Here's a solution: Cancel your internet subscription claiming poverty as the reason. If the gob'mint thinks she should be on the internet, the least they could do is pay for it.
