Radical Supreme Court shows disrespect for society

I wrote to the Advocate on March 1, regarding the lack of good sense on the part of the Supreme Court of Canada on their recent rulings. Now they have done it again!

I wrote to the Advocate on March 1, regarding the lack of good sense on the part of the Supreme Court of Canada on their recent rulings. Now they have done it again!

They ruled that marijuana can be prescribed to sick people in other forms that just “smokin’ it,” namely food such as cookies.

Suddenly the court has now become doctors and scientists. Considering that Health Canada has not yet investigated and ruled on the safety and effectiveness of medical marijuana, why would the Supreme Court intentionally preempt Health Canada?

Blind arrogance!

In another case, they ruled that particular Christian prayers spoken prior to public meetings, such as city-council meetings, violated the neutrality of the state and contravene the religious freedom of an atheist (an atheist man has challenged the prayers in Saguenay, Que.).

It appears that radicalism and political activism are the new normal for our Supreme Court. More and more, they seem to be displaying a concerted disrespect for a moral and common-sense society.

Are they teaching us a better way to live or are they dangerously promoting a lifestyle that will lead to self-destruction of our society?
