Does this relate to the NAFTA provision that prohibits imposing civil liability for censoring content, going farther by saying that liability should be imposed inf platforms fail to censor?

Ive always thought free trade agreements were less about freedom and more about the erosion of sovereignty democratically epected governments have over their economy. 'Free trade' is better branding though.

I like the foreign judges in there as a bulwark against the national security bill. The bill being essential to the legitimate sovereignty interests of China in the face of an increasingly confrontational US Military/ diplomatic stance. HK likely a espionage hub, dont you think?

I trust former Chief Justice McLachlin's judgement more than Dominic Raabs. Here's another article: . She herself thinks the rule of law is being protected, its outside commentators who are reasoning backwards, saying it is not so she should resign. Proof?

If we pulled our judges out of Hong Kong it would be spectacular media affair for China Hawks, but it would be a hollow victory or even a spectacular victory for China. Im sure they despise having colonial judges in HK. To be rid of them without expelling them would be a big win.

Well when she said authoritarian I take her to mean the word in its plain english meaning, and those are the two most powerful authoritarian regimes. Sounds like Otoole is grasping at straws

She was obviously referring to China and Iran.

The only reason i put up a token defense of his work is because I found it sincere.

Writing is probably cathartic, the publishers money could be desperately needed to pay off drug/medical debts! One should definitely read his work with a grain of salt. Without the limelight we wouldnt know his struggles, and certainly he's not the only leading prof/writer addict

U of T tenure coming from small town Northern Alberta is something. Best selling book. Massive youtube fame. Seems like his life unravelled from the heat of the limelight he created. I also dont defer to the social media mob in defining a person, nor do I endorse their tactics.

I read his book, it was meh, but there was insight. And I would say very little if anything controversial in it. His 'alt-right', supporters would have been disappointed, certainly.

Criminal justice reform is a never ending project. Still so much to do. Giving judgrs discretion again by abolishing mandatory minimums is a start.
