The major defence that was brought forward was deeming the man insane and incapable of comprehending the difference between right and wrong. Riel was against the allegations and was determined to pledge his own case that he was sane and his actions were justified in order to gain rights for the Métis people. His lawyers, however, “threatened to withdraw from the case” when Louis protested (Groarke, 2013, p.6). In addition, Groarke (2013) wrote of the defences Riel raised in his speech to the jury. His first statement was that Canada had no dominion over the Northwest Territories at the time of the uprising, deeming them as an invader (p.9).
It is further any motions not previously ruled upon by the Court are DENIED. The court found that originally rule of was not applied having considered the findings and conclusions set forth above and the requirements of 28 U.S.C. § 2253, the Courts find, sua sponte, that a certificate of appealability should not issue, as Petitioner has failed to make a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right.
The rule of self determination for secession cannot thus be availed under international law. The East Agnosticans as the secessionist may follow from the Quebec case before the Supreme Court of Canada where the unilateral secession in the Quebec case was unconstitutional and illegal. The Supreme Court determined that the quebec secessionist were not a “people”, they lacked a clear majority of the people of Quebec. And furthermore there is no evidence that the rights of the East Agnostican people have ever been subject to flagrant human rights violation from the government of Agnostica. And the response of the international community which did not provide official recognition as the secession was led by few inhabitants the Igbo people of south eastern Nigeria to the attempted secession of Biafra from Nigeria in the
This document (the Federalist) will provide all the reasons to support the new plan of government described in the U.S. Constitution, and responses to each of the criticisms of the plan. Opponents to the new plan criticize it most on it creating a strong central government that will be abusive to individual liberty. However, an energetic government is crucial to the protection of individual liberty. The plan of government under the Articles of Confederation was unable to effectively protect individual liberties because it did not act directly upon the people, and had no authority to enforce its laws. One of the biggest problems resulting from the Articles of Confederation was that there was no means to enforce unity amongst the states.
What I can safely conclude from these theories then is that the status of a fact, that is whether it is material or not, plays a big role in forming the principle of law or ratio decidendi. Why? Because by eliminating the immaterial facts, the court may come about a principle that is more extensive or broad and therefore can be applied as binding precedent in future cases with similar
There are currently no constitutional limits on hate speech, even though many community areas such as college campuses have passed restrictions. Any law that restricts hate speech is actually unconstitutional as of right now, and to move forward with an agenda that would restrict speech in this way on a federal level is simply not supported by the Constitution. Attempting to pass a law that defines hateful speech and outlaws it would be a violation of the first amendment, as it would be very difficult to do so in a way that does not infringe on other liberties granted under the first amendment. Many of those who support hate speech as a first amendment right argue that hateful words do not incite violence unless that violence already existed, and would have happened with or without encouragement. This is a nice thought, and in a perfect world it would even be true, however, this notion is not supported by the massive amount of evidence showing violent acts encouraged by hateful speech.
Secondly, the U.S. would provide a shield if a nuclear power threatened an ally or a country the U.S. deemed to be vital to its national security. And, lastly, the U.S. would provide military and economic aid to countries under treaty agreements, but the requesting nation would be expected to bear primary
The United Nations is corrupt and due to this Canada does little or has no chance to contribute to the organization. The United Nations is a global organization that was created to prevent future wars, however, due to the peacekeeping missions, it has made it worse. Canada joining peacekeeping missions means
International law cannot be invoked to settle a dispute which is essentially a domestic matter of that state. The question is whether a matter is essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of a state or not has to be decided by the Security Council which is controlled by the five permanent members of the United Nations. The availability of the veto power in the hands of the permanent members of the Security Council is a major obstacle in solving international problems. There is no certainty for international law. The international law has failed to maintain order and peace in the world for many
