The Nanny State wants to make drinking safer

- July 18th, 2012

From the blog of the Canadian Constitution Foundation

Coming to your local bar … plastic cups? According to a provincial court judge in Nova Scotia, it may be time for the provincial government (and one would assume provincial governments across Canada) to ban glass glasses and bottles in bars.

Obviously this judge has never been in a bar fight, watched a bar fight or been in a tough part of town.

I’ve heard of people using chairs as weapons before, let’s ban those. I’ve seen people smashed against bars before so let’s take the physical bar out of the bar. And tables have pointy corners sometimes so only round ones. On second thought, tables can be used as weapons so let’s ban those unless they are made out of cushy foam that never hurts anyone or the environment.

Or here is a better idea…..how about Judge Gregory Lenehan sticks to applying the law and leaves crafting the law, social policy or the stemware regulations to those responsible for such things.

Buffoon.

    It’s our own fault for giving these people the power to abuse citizens in the first place.

    Is there one judge left in Canada that does not think it is appropriate to wear their rectum as a balaclava while at work?

    We need to rely on the government for safe drinking water anyways. I mean who else will care about the average citizen. It wouldn’t be corporations because they just care about corporate profits and trying to help in the agenda of taking away people’s benefits. It is either huge government or government of the 19th century. Those are the extremes. Why can’t people try for a government of the left-centre or the right-centre? Why does it have to be the far-left or far-right?
