Tuesday, April 4. 2017

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

C Block Social Studies 11 - Today we will work on our chart that briefly explains the battles Canada was involved in during the First World War (identifying Canada's role in them, and explaing the results impact). Use the resources from yesterday's post for Ypres (2nd Battle), Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele (3rd Battle of Ypres). Lastly I'll have you work on questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 39 and question 5 from page 47 of the Counterpoints textbook.

D Block Criminology 12 - Today you need to work on your shoplifting poster. Remember:
You work for the Retail Council of Canada and have been hired to create a poster campaign about shoplifting. The poster campaign has two purposes:
  1. To help employees identify people who are shoplifting and
  2. To explain how to reduce shoplifting in stores (target hardening and target removal strategies)

Look at yesterday's blog entry for tips on how to spot shoplifters and for more check out:

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today I'll give you time to finish your work on questions 1-7 on page 74 from the All About Law textbook.  Next, you will be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 ( Main Question: Did Thornton have a legal duty arising out of the common-law to inform the Red Cross of his HIV status?) and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72 (Main Question: Is willful blindness relevant to a mistake of fact in consent in a sexual assault charge?)

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll move into assault, sexual assault, other sexual offences, robbery, and abduction. In Canada, there are three levels of assault, based on the level of severity and corresponding penalties:

Level One: assault (max penalty 5 years)
Level Two: assault causing bodily harm (max penalty 10 years)
Level Three: aggravated assault (max penalty 14 years)

These levels are identified in section 265 of the Criminal Code. All assaults have two common elements:

1. The accused must have intent to carry out the attack and cause harm.
2. There must be no consent by the victim (for example, as in a boxing match).

Now, legally speaking, parents have rights to use corrective measures in order to discipline children. This issue was raised in the Canadian Foundation for Children, Youth and the Law v. Canada (Attorney General) 2004 case. In its decision, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld Section 43 of the Criminal Code which "provides that a parent, teacher, or person acting in the place of a parent is justified in using force to correct a child’s behaviour that is under his or her care provided that the force used is reasonable in all of the circumstances". So what is "force"? The force must be used for educative or corrective purposes (not as a form of punishment) relating to restraining, controlling, or expressing disapproval of the actual behaviour of a child capable of benefiting from that correction; the force cannot result in harm or the prospect of harm.

My question is "Should parents have the full authority to discipline their children as they see fit or should parents never be allowed to use physical force on their children"?

After our discussion I'll have you work on questions 2, 3 and 4 on page 231 of the text. To help...

Implying death ( bodily harm or burning property (burn/destroy) *Must be believable and Must be imminent
CC 265 Assault
Any unwanted application of force against another person
Level 1 simple assault
Level 2 assault causing bodily harm
Level 3 aggravated assault
CC 273 Sexual AssaultAny unwanted sexual contact
Level 1 any touching (molestation).
Level 2 with a weapon
Level 3 aggravated (endanger life or wound/maim/disfigure)

Spanking children could soon be illegal in Canada
