Conservatives Don't Like Supreme Court Decision On Sniffing Dogs For Enhanced Police Work
At what point are right wing ideologues going to realize that Canadians do not want authoritarian encroachment in our society? Canada's Supreme Court has clearly ruled that law enforcement 'fishing expeditions' do not advance individual and civil rights in this country. The use of dogs as a screening tool is something that authoritarian and totalitarian regimes employ at the cost of individual protection under the law.
A right wing thinker will retort that 'if you are doing nothing wrong, you will have nothing to worry about'.
Stockwell Day wants new laws to justify the enhanced use of sniffing dogs in order to 'protect our youth from drugs'. The potential for abuse by the police is real. One needs only to look at how responsible Canadian police forces have been with tasers as a law enforcement tool.
