Straight thoughts 105

May 13th, 2003

How would we react if the Supreme Court ruled that Language is one of the "Charter" rights and on that basis would give Quebec one year to change all of their laws and start using English in their Province to accommodate the "rights" of 10% of English-speaking Quebecois?

How would Canada react if the Supreme Court ruled that Inuit people should change their culture and way of life to accommodate 5% of the Inuit population who have a different way of life?

How would the world react if the US imposed CNN news as the only TV station in Iraq, Japan or Vietnam because of the foreign population there?

How would South Africa, Israel, Lebanon, Iran, China or any other number of nations react if we required them to change their culture and tradition to accommodate the small amount of "westerners" in their midst?

However, we seem to be required by our own courts to change our traditional definition of marriage and our culture based on the traditional family because of less than 1% of the people who live in homosexual relationships.
