The Ontario Cabinet can impose something close to martial law without you even knowing
Everybody in Ontario should understand the Public Works Protection Act. It sounds like some obscure piece of legislation that couldn’t matter very much to most people. But look again. With a snap of the Ontario Cabinet’s fingers, they can essentially eliminate your right to assemble and eliminate probable cause before your person or your car could be searched.
The piece of legislation that was used to guard the G-20 is something that many civil rights lawyers just found out about and certainly the public found out about for the first time. Some people are calling it a form of martial law. The following is my interview with lawyer Paul Cavalluzzo a constitutional lawyer, who takes us through the Act. Pay attention, it could be you or your children’s rights that are at stake.
JAY: You got involved in the case because you were involved with some lawyers who got an injunction on using a piece of sound equipment that was going to be used like a weapon.
JAY: Give us a quick update on that, and then we’ll talk about the legislation.
