Mass Shootings: at work, rest and play – the new normal?

Every nation is a social experiment – which is the balance of class sizes to governance, maximum benefits distributed as equitably as possible – measured by civil unrest, partly normal crime states, hate crimes to open terrorism, towards revolution…

Something that is rather impossible in a land territory where there are so many categories of occupants.

In Canada:

Indigenous Peoples who where here when the Vikings first landed on these shores 1000 years ago, common era (common era having started once the globe was circumnavigated and people had to get over the cultural shock of Other People with Different Creation Myths Exist – send in the marines and missionaries, High Tech and Hats beats Undisciplined Feather Hair – a concept summarized as “Hats vs Feathers”) – who are under Aboriginal Acts of Legislation, who exist as a group legal entity. Collectives. 

Citizens – born here

Landed Immigrant – moved here

originally, men were the only ones who voted.

Then, Women got to vote, having to go above Canada to England’s court, so Canada sulked and finally separated in 1985 and became an adult nation, not one of the Commonwealth Collective nations.

Canada stopped being the world’s cannon fodder, and we rode America’s military might’s wake to be able to punch far above our weightclass in fightspeak. When England and America went to war, Canada declined to tag along to many places.

Canada was where the English Loyalists and many Slaves and later Vietnam Draft Avoiders/Objectors came to.

There was never a law against gays and lesbians voting, but there were laws against us and any time a government has laws that limit or reduce anyone’s access to and treatment under the law, that’s the Red Flag Problem. Rights are meant to advance and become inclusive.

Now, the very last people who were extended the ability to vote was the original indigenous population. That happened in the 1970s, but they had arrived on these shores from North over from China and along the coast in the stone ages to populate from south to north pole in several waves over the last 5,000.

China, Canada and Indigenous Peoples, eh?

The laws preventing them from their cultural practices of Pot Lucks and clothing and dancing, in speaking in their own language, were ended.

in 1980, the portion of the criminal code against abortion was struck down in the wake of Roe v Wade in the USA. There is no law about abortion in Canada, it is a privately administered medical proceedure administered by Health Canada, but since most major hospitals were run by religion groups, access to health care and planning families is better than in America, but not to the Canada standard it should be.

in 1999, the extension of British Common Law Marriage was inclusive of gays and lesbians – the equal of civil union, but not available in Quebec, which is under Napoleonic Code provincially. So the Federal Marriage Law (and Divorce Law) in 2003/04 is the only thing that is keeping Marriage equal in all provinces and territories. There is no common law in Quebec, while in BC, they have legally upgraded common law to married because of the tax differences between the 2 status.

The group of people who got the vote before indigenous people – who were not given a vote so that they had no say in who had a say over them – was in 1965.

in 1965, the Employees of the Federal Government in Canada were allowed to vote.

it was pretty much the same logic, so that employees had no say over their political party who formed the government of the day

it was too high a price to pay, and that was also when the equal pay for equal work began and male and female employees were to be paid the same.

So, there were the attempted to level the playing field to balance historical mis-treatments

affirmative action, employment equity, celebrate diversity….

The global era of connectivity and access to all the data one would normally associate with a library or research centre – once there was the Internet in the 1990s, the purpose of report writing as a school teaching method was meaningless. better to teach the format and how to populate that.
