Today's schedule is A-AG-B-C-D

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today you can start with the pro/con chart on Confederation that I'll give you in class. After, we will look at the Charlottetown and Quebec conferences in August and October 1864. We'll talk about the circus atmosphere of the Charlottetown Conference and examine the outcomes of the week long discussion. Next we'll look at the Quebec conference and identify all of the political and logistical problems that the Founders of Confederation had to overcome. We'll figure out what the Quebec Resolutions (also called the 72 Resolutions) were and see how taxation and representation issues were deal breakers for PEI and Newfoundland.

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll review yesterday's topics of firearms, street racing, prostitution and obscenity. After this we'll talk about terrorism - Criminal Code section 83.01(1) and criminal harassment - Criminal Code section 264. I'll have you work with a partner on the Canada (Attorney General) v. Khawaja (F.C.), 2007 case and we'll discuss it as a class together. The following links will help with terrorism in Canada:

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch the History Channel documentary "Paradise Lost". From the New York Times review: “Jonestown: Paradise Lost” methodically clocks through the cult’s final days, when Representative Leo Ryan of California’s 11th District arrived in Guyana with reporters and family members of People’s Temple followers to investigate continued complaints about Mr. Jones’s mistreatment of his supplicants. Just as the group was to leave, Mr. Jones’s gunmen killed Mr. Ryan and the defectors he was taking back to the United States. Cult members killed themselves later that day. This documentary will take the bulk of today's class and we'll take some time to discuss it afterwards.
