Canadians therefore, needed to be protected from the corrupt toxicity of the Chinese. The Chinese were sojourning in Canada, which contributed to the view that they were mere visitors to Canada and not true citizens. Sojourning was interpreted as being entrenched in Chinese culture, and was seen as consciously refusing Canadian ideology . Particularly, Canadians viewed Chinese migrants as mere parasitic consumers taking money out of the economy and reprehensibly giving it to China . Canadian labour leaders were instrumental in pressuring the federal government to enact anti-Chinese immigration to protect white labour.
Laws are used and developed in order to provide guidelines, establish authority and to maintain a sense of orderliness in society. However, chaotic and unexpected occurrences can often cause individuals and groups in society to go above the law and perform acts that are seen as unacceptable under the legal system. Therefore, I agree with the article shown, that such occurrences, to a certain extent, can take place in Ottawa in the case of a natural disaster. For instance, although, Canada does not have a higher crime rate compared to the U.S, the country is still vulnerable to such an event occurring since many violent acts occurred during the 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup Riot, which was fueled by frustration and anger. Additionally, the natural
Name: Title: Institution: Labeling Theory This research puts into consideration the labelling theory as an illustrative model for the hypothesis of criminal law-disregarding conduct. The study presumes that for that infringement of the criminal law that have customarily involved the community and the crime victims. There are various research journal articles backing the labelling theory based on the analytical details that have been labeled and comparative of the fundamentals of the theory. Labelling hypothesis concentrates on the authority response to crime and makes a nonsensical contention in regards to the reasons for committing a crime. The theory connects deviance to the response of the individuals.
On the case of R. v. Noway, the court renders Noway not-guilty of the charges put forth on him which is the violation of the known and enacted criminal law 253 - operation of a motor vehicle while impaired. Criminal law seeks to provide justice to society. To be charged with a criminal offense, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed. This ‘burden of proof’ precedent was established in R. v. Oaks case which enacted that, all elements of the criminal code must be met including the mental intention; in order for the courts to exercise their authority and punish an accused person. Moreover, the rule of law [(1) that the laws are known and enacted, (2) government action is authorized by law and (3) everyone is bound by the law] also renders laws to avoid arbitrariness so that it is clear when a person is in violation of the criminal code.
Violent crimes are violations of the criminal law that requires violence against one person to another, which the extent of minor to major impact on society of criminal jurisprudence that has shifted from the past to today. There are two differences in the violence and crime. Crime can be any type of rape and homicide, but in fact where does the sense of violence come from as today. In the past nothing wasn’t homicide or violence, it was all about the different laws in different groups that were created and to be punished in the way of hate, the sense of integration or separation in the past. Today crime is in any type of way, but as a law enforcement, what makes a violent crime.
The theory of criminal justice This theory states that criminal procedures are part and branch of philosophy that focuses on punish those who break the law. There is a strong correlation between criminal procedures and the philosophy of law as well as the morals and ethical standards of society. Criminal law theorists put more emphases on offenses that can be seen as illegal and that warrant criminalization of the activities or events. Thus, most of these theorists believe that there is the need to punish the lawbreakers to set an example to other individuals who may have intentions of following their suit or engaging in legal activities. Some of the activities classified by criminal law theorist as a crime or illegal include murder, rape and
A police officer or any person for that matter is allowed to use deadly force in the defense of another person. This is not only justified in the public domain, but also, a defense in court. The force used however should not only be reasonable but also necessary given the circumstances at the time. The degree of reasonableness and necessesity is left to the person and public for judgment and hence action befitting the situation. In many instances police officers and citizens alike have been caught on the wrong side of the law and made to justify the amount of force used against another person while defending others or themselves.
In some people’s assessments, multiculturalism in Canada is unsuccessful. Racial segregation by tacit agreement, identity doubt of Canadian citizenship, and entrenched Eurocentrism have all combined to substantiate multiculturalism in Canada is futile. First of all, multiculturalism is abortive in Canada because immigrants from one culture habitually separate from others. According
The judicial branch created the power of judicial review. Judicial review allows for judges to own the power of deciding the solution to each case. Publicity influences the judge to decide on a form of punishment. In order to obtain publicity, judges can produce numerous cruel and unusual punishments. With cruel and unusual punishments, humiliation can not deter other from committing a similar crime.
Introduction This question requires for an understanding on the rules and principles relating to criminal liability for an omission. As well as whether the rules and principles are too restrictive on individual freedom. In order to have an understanding of the rules and principles of omissions, one first must understand how criminal liability is imposed.

Heinous crimes are can have horrible and lasting affects on society, wether they be murder, manslaughter, sexual assault, or drug charges. Aggravated sexual assault can be argued to be the most heinous crime in Canada. Section 273 of the C.C.C. defines aggravated sexual assault as anyone who “in committing a sexual assault, wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the compliant” (Greenspan, Rosenberg, & Henein, 2016, p. 257). Sections 271, 272, and 273 of the Canadian Criminal Code (C.C.C.)
Through the case of Saskatchewan (Human Rights Commission) v Whatcott , the court was able to define hate speech and determined that the flyers William Whatcott created and distributed were not protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The information on the flyers were inaccurate, and caused both social and direct harm to the individuals it targeted. This case is similar in nature to the R v Butler  case as it focuses on freedom of expression and involves material that the public found offensive. Although similar, we are able to see through the outcome how society has progressed and changed throughout the years. The pamphlets in Saskatchewan (Human Rights Commission) v Whatcott  do not display the level of tolerance of diversity and acceptance that our society should strive to
