Dalton McGuinty just got a lot scarier, thanks to the efforts of Comrade Kwinter and his gang of safety goons. Bill 56 is now a reality:
Ontario's premier will be able to take advantage of extra powers granted through a "catastrophic" emergencies bill passed yesterday.Take note that this new bill applies to any "catastrophic" emergency, as determined and defined by the central authorities. Recall Paul McKeever's observations on the meaning of "emergency" as defined within the bill:
. . . under this bill, an "emergency" is given a special meaning:It should also be recalled that this bill "authorizes" anyone deemed "reasonably qualified" to provide health care services in a "declared" emergency. If health care workers refuse to put themselves at risk, their incentive are fines of up to $100,000 and a year in jail for each day they refuse to provide service.
Next stop: In response to Global Warming, Dalton declares a permanent state of emergency.
