B Block Introduction to Law 10 - This is it...the last day for research or compilation. We have the library booked in order to continue work on our serial killer research activity which is due next Monday in class. If you have completed the research for this assignment then you can print off your work and start to assemble your poster (I have poster paper for you in the library). Either way...this is it so use your time wisely

A Block Law 12 - So yesterday we took the block to discuss the collective rights of Canada's Aboriginal/First Nations people. We talked about the significance of the Calder v. Attorney-General of British Columbia (1973) decision and the Delgamuukw v British Columbia (1997) decision as well. I'll have you work on questions about this tomorrow but today...

We'll talk about the LGBTQ+ community in Canada and the Civil Marriage Act (which legalized same-sex marriage in Canada on July 20, 2005) and take a closer look at Human Rights and how they are enforced in Canada.

To finish, I'll have you work on: Questions 1-4 on page 94:

1. Explain the difference between civil rights and human rights.
2. How do prejudice and stereotyping lead to discrimination?
3. Explain the difference between a complainant and a respondent.
4. What is the difference between intentional and unintentional discrimination?

Questions 4 & 5 from page 97:

4. Explain the concept of a poisoned work environment. Provide an example.
5. Explain the difference between accommodation and undue hardship.

AND Question 5 from page 104:

5. What types of remedies are available under human rights law?

For more on the BC Human Rights Code look at the Attorney General's Human Rights Protection site. For more on the Canadian Human Rights Act see the Canadian Department of Justice site. For more on Human Rights in Canada see the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today we'll try to answer the Key Questions Why Do People Migrate and Where Do People Migrate Within a Country? To do this we'll look at push and pull factors along with the difference between a refugee and an internally displaced person. I'll have you fill in a chart on push/pull factors and then we'll look at internal rather than international migration (migration within a country). The text talks about Russia, Canada, China, and Brazil so you'll need to fill in a chart on these 4 case studies of internal migration. Lastly we'll look at (and yep you've got a thing to do on it) urbanization, suburbanization, and counterurbanization.

C Block Criminology 12 - Today I'd like you to read through the "Nature of Victimization" on pages 53-5 and 57-58  and "Theories of Victimization" dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities on pages 59-62 in the CRIM text. After discussing these sections your job will be to complete the following:

1. Briefly outline and explain the patterns we've identified in victimization (social ecology, household, personal characteristics and repeat victimization)
2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization.

For more on victim assistance see:
BC Ministry of Justice Victims and Witnesses of Crime and Violence

There is a good CBC article here on the costs associated with victims of violent crime.

Flex - I will be available in 115/611 for assistance and help on: Intro Law projects; Human Geography population activities; Criminology victim questions; or Senior Law Human Rights work
