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

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we're back in the library for you to continue your blog work. For this new entry I'd like you to find out as much information as you can about one of two notorious Canadian serial murderers...Clifford Robert Olson Jr. (Serial) or Robert William Pickton (Serial) as well as Marc L├ępine (Mass). For this assignment I'd like you to tell me what they did and why they did it....use Levin & Fox's typology of serial and mass murder to explain motives. Do not use Wikipedia as your source for this assignment use the links on the names above. Aside from answering what they did and why they did it, also try to state which serial killer category Olson or Pickton are: mission-oriented, hedonistic, visionary, power/control, thrill killer, expedience killer; (and define whichever category you select). Also,  answer what can we learn from their horrific actions and is it ever possible to stop people like this in Canada? Why or Why not?

B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today  we'll discuss the numbered treaties on the Prairies and the Indian Act. I'll give you a few notes on the impact of the treaties and the Indian Act and then we'll look at the North West Mounted Police. It is important to note that in 1885 John A. Macdonald said of the Metis "If they are half-breed, they are [considered by the government to be] white". This meant that the Metis were not covered under the Indian Act and were not entitled to "Indian Status" and therefore did not have the same rights until the Supreme Court of Canada recognized the rights of the Metis in 2003. For more on the Numbered treaties and the Indian Act see:

CBC Digital Archives - Why Treaty Rights are worth Fighting For
The Canadian Encyclopedia: The Indian Act
Henderson's Annotated Indian Act

Your work today is to complete questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 180 of the Horizons text.

C Block Law 12 - Today we'll end our look at Criminal Law with your criminal law unit final test. If you studied and are prepared then I'm certain you will do fine. I'll need you to finish and submit last week's work on empaneling juries and trial procedures as well as sentencing and punishment as our unit is finished. Good Luck!
