Lawton Online: Questions of freedom; property, speech, short skirts and more

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

In this Lawton Online, I’ll shatter what little faith you have left in your government by discussing the widespread issue of civil forfeiture--provincial governments seizing property they deem to be unlawful, even if a person has done nothing illegal. 

I also chat about the Ontario Human Rights Commission's attempt to protect women by banning restaurants from having sexy uniforms.

And, I talk about a Manitoba university's ban of a documentary about abortion because the school's president was "uncomfortable" with it.

I miss “must be a liberal”

How can you cover the topic of civil forfeiture without talking about drug dealers doing their business by taking rides in cabs in order to avoid losing their own vehicles?

Is Tasha stupid? The Salvation Army Booth College is located literally across the street from the University of Winnipeg. She could have gone there in the first place instead of going to the left wing head quarters. of Manitoba. That would have spared her the rejection from the U of W, and she would not have had to look for a new place to show her movie.

Lastly, it is good to see the podcast is not locked away behind that awful pay wall.
