I work in the justice system in Newfoundland and the banishment thing is kind of wild. Similar punishment is used frequently in probation orders and release conditions (ex: stay out of the community of X or don't go past X to the geographic region known as Y and defined as Z) but I haven't seen someone banished from the province before.

Typically we punish people by sentencing them to conditional sentences, so house arrest, and forcing them to stay in communities with crippling unemployment and zero life prospects rather than running off to Fort Mac. It's effective if the desired outcome is retaining our population and maintaining a steady stream of repeat offenders at our courthouses.

I was wondering how this could be reconciled with our mobility rights under the Charter, but perhaps it is somehow "grandfathered".

Well, when you're convicted of a crime and jailed your mobility rights are restricted. Same idea I guess.

I've never heard of this film festival but just looking at the website I think i want to check it out next year. I like the huge mix of amateur and semi-pro stuff they are showing. Not to mention a nice selection of animated shorts.

Which film festival? Surely not Montreal's.

Does the Montreal Festival still follow a competition format?

What do you mean which festival ? Read my precedent post. There are FOUR links about it.

Here's another one:

Absolutely NOBODY here is talking anymore about the World Film Festival, which has become a tired joke and an embarrassment. The festival is dying fast.

Some days i'm reminded that I adore Kitchener. Today's e-Record has a report on a 66 year old man charged with exposing himself in Downtown's Victoria Park. The report includes this line:

The suspect, described as a white man wearing an orange dress and beige sun hat, ...

I mean seriously, who wears orange in the middle of summer?
