Ironic? More like creepy.

I don't follow the rules so I assume no one follows the rules.

This isn't true. I've been repeatedly assured by Fark that only Americans defied Covid rules and that the rest of the planet is populated by angels.

More like perfectly correct.

How can a judge that breaks restrictions, hold in goodwill that another group has broken restrictions and penalize them.

This is just basic PI stuff.
 
2021-07-12 11:39:04 PM  
Maybe he could have the PI arrested. He paid a young boy for his services.

That is really creepy.

"A lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which launched the challenge on behalf of the group of churches and individuals, later admitted his organization hired the private investigator, though he said it was not an attempt to influence the decision in the case."

Manitoba? man I was figuring it was those churches in southern alberta that always have mumps and measles outbreaks because vaccines are the debil for some reason or another. stem cells or something? I unno.

I was wondering what would happen if a US judge called the State Police to report being followed by a strange vehicle.

Ah, the old "if one guy doesn't wear a mask one time, then it's OK if we deliberately spreads the plague and over 600,000 people die" rationale.  A classic.
 
2021-07-12 11:42:04 PM  
Not only did someone come up with this "let's stalk the judge so we can embarrass him in his own courtroom" plan, but then everyone else agreed and carried it out. I know I'm just restating the obvious here, but it is just astounding in ways I can scarcely parse.

Whaaaat, an organization called the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is a right-wing shill organization? But their name is almost entirely made up of "good" buzzwords, how can they be far-right shills?

Don't want to bring you down even more, but Calgary has way more problems than just them.

a quadrant system is in tons of places, edmonton's being forced into using it too now which I find really funny.
They figured the city couldn't ever possibly be more than 100 blocks across so they made downtown 100st and 100ave. 

some of the funnier things I find about calgary is some of the more visible jerks who claim to be calgarians are from out east and then crap their stupid ideas on everybody. like that mayoral candidate who just spent a few weeks in jail, or Kenny.

the head of the alberta NDP is from calgary too so go figure.

Yes, truly the most dangerous forms of lockdown violations are the ones you have to secretly spy on someone for extended periods of time to detect.  And not, if course, the ones that are scheduled publicly, say every Sunday, with packed-in indoor spaces and choirs projecting viral particles into the recirculated air.

There is no indication anything of the sort is true, even with surveillance of his home and activities. Protecting your own ethical failings on others isn't "reasonable suspicion", it's just nuts.

oh dude.
I'm in a pretty gerrymandered riding, and every once in a while I go to my MLA's open mic nights or what ever they call them, so as to be a voice of (relative) sanity.
There's a ton of people who will go off about their 2nd amendment rights or their 1st amendment rights, ya know, completely forgetting what country they live in.

some folks actually do have good arguments about stuff but whooeee there's a lot of nutters of all stripes out there.

although generally it's people angry that metis and first nations folks can hunt on crown land, but they try it one time and they get caught for poaching. Also a lot of people making fun of trudeau.

It's just a coincidence that they were following this particular judge.  Weird, right?
