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). Secondly, he explained that the Métis had a right to defend themselves against the invasion of Canada. Nonetheless, the court had not accepted the insanity defence nor Riel’s pleas. The outcome of the trial was not in favor of the Métis leader and the jury would claim him as guilty of high treason against the Canadian regime. He was sentenced to be hung in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Government Essay The Mayflower compact, and John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government helped establish the principles of freedom, independence, and natural rights that were used to shape the ideas on which our founders created the Declaration of Indepence. The Mayflower compact was important because it was the idea that people had the right to determine the form of government in which they wanted to be governed (Nobles 1215). This concept was important because it was based on biblical principles that they got their rights from God, not from a king, government, or ruling elite (Nobles 1215). John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government was important because it helped create civil societies in which people would give up order to receive protection and security from their government(Locke 1690). This was important because it created a peaceful living and order, but also the people still had the right to overthrow their government if they felt they were not representing the people anymore and abusing power(Locke 1690).
"(“Roth”).The court said the first Amendment was not planned to protect statements like Roth’s. The problem is the First Amendment does not specify what kind of speech is protected or not. It simply says “Congress shall make no law….abridging the freedom of speech” ("First Amendment (ratified 1791”). Nowhere in the Amendment does it specify what kind of speech is protected. In addition, United State also violated its citizen’s right by creating a law (The Federal Obscenity Statute) to limit the speech of the people, which is an
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
The appellant was convicted, the trial judge stated that an aboriginal right could not be claimed unless it was supported by a special treaty that section 35 of the Constitution Act,1982 accordingly had no application. (1076). Therefore, the appellant failed to appeal his case meaning the crown had won. The court justified is decision in the case by stating that, section 35 applies to rights in existence when the Constitution Act,1982 came into effect; it does not revive extinguished rights. An existing aboriginal right cannot be read to incorporate the specific way it was regulated before 1982.
Back in olden times there was a war about the united states but did you know that it took away to write to constitution and to ratify it. The U.S constitution was to help the country agree on things and stay happy without wars. Ratify means to be approved. Yes the constitution should be ratified because of the bill rights, separation of power and talking about the bill of rights. I think this for these reasons.
In April 1982, Canada codified its exclusionary rule in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Section 24(2) in particular, provides for the exclusion of evidence in when “the admission of such evidence in the proceedings would bring the administration of justice into disrepute”. In Canada, the maintenance of judicial integrity requires a consideration of the seriousness of the offence with which the accused is charged and the extent of the violation. Initially judges had little discretion whether to exclude evidence. This, clearly, made for a more robust rule.
Based on the mandate given by 1945 Constitution, thus Indonesia's strategic defense establishment should be able to ensure the accomplishments of national interests. In essence, future strategic defense and security interests include permanent strategic interests, urgent strategic interests, and international cooperation. The permanent defense interests of Indonesia namely defense administration efforts to safeguard and protect Indonesian sovereignty and territorial integrity and the safety and dignity of the nation from all forms of threats, both coming from external or domestic sources. Even though threat estimates have demonstrated that external physical threats to sovereignty are unlikely, as an independent, sovereign and dignified nation, the strategic capability to defend ourselves must be maintained whether the threats are present or
The United Nations is an international organization that promotes cooperation between countries and the world. Canada’s involvement in the United Nations has little to no effect because the United Nations has no power. Canada’s impact on the United Nations was insignificant due to corruption, problems in finance, and peacekeeping missions. Canada should not be involved with the United Nations and therefore should leave the organization. The United Nations is corrupt and due to this Canada does little or has no chance to contribute to the organization.
The basis of Functionalism as a body of thought in International Relations is credited to David Mitrany (1888-1975) (Griffiths, 2013). The theory purports to explain how the international system organizes itself in terms of functions and needs, whereby functional agents provide and prescribe solutions for common needs through the integration process and with the aid of knowledge and expertise. Functionalist thinkers assume that the process of integration takes place within a framework of freedom, that the knowledge and expertise needed are available and that States will not sabotage the process. The theory rejects the idea of power as influencing the proliferation of international organizations as propagated by popular realist though. Using functionalism as a base, neo-realism emerged as an applicable theory to support the formation of the hoped for united Europe.
