Protecting Courts From Families

February 28, 2012 permalink

Ontario is considering bill 34, Security for Courts etc. Persons entering courthouses must provide identification and answer questions. Their person, possessions and vehicle are subject to search. Police may use reasonable force for any of these purposes. Persons not cooperating can be refused entry or forcibly removed or arrested.

This law is not to guard against religious terrorists out to destroy the infidel. For one commentary, refer to Karen Selick. While at first the bill shows no connection to family law, the security becomes necessary to protect family law functionaries as they take on the role of forcibly separating parents from their children, and parents from each other.

Find the bill at the link above. In case it changes, here is our copy (pdf). Thanks to John Dunn for finding this bill.
