Re: Really? It's not a joke.
In Canada the police can make laws and they do make laws, some times with zero public consultation and little to no advertising of the changes.
Some of these police created laws carry a minimum jail time of 3yrs to a max of 10yrs. People who get charged are always represented in the media as criminals who get what they deserve so is is very rare that any charges result in the public learning about any uncomfortable details. If the discussion happens to occur the media will question why anyone wouldn't agree, they never question the method of law creation.
Never is the nature of how laws are created in Canada seriously questioned or made into the ongoing discussion it should be. Even when it is the police or enforcement that creates the law, by writ or enforcement and/or the crown attorney, Canadian media remains quiet, claiming that their only role is to sell clicks and papers, and meet the requirements of the CRTC that rules them.
That Canada, a sovereign nation with no Royal Family or legal colonial connection to any Nation ruled by Royality, still has "Crown Attorneys" should have at least Canadians asking questions about their political and legal systems.
If they did they would notice that most important positions in their systems are appointed. Of the 3 main political branches in Canada 2 are filled by Royal Appointment. The only branch that has elected members is the House which is subject to party rule which prevents those elected from representing the concerns of their constituents, at least if they want to remain. No laws can be passed without approval of those Royally Appointed. Most top positions in government are filled by Royal Appointment, including the CRTC that rules Canadian media.
And the police can make laws, something those ruling via Royal Privilege, have found to be very convenient, which is why Canada's police agency reports to the PMO with no interference from citizens or their representatives, or accountability.
Britain pulled out of Canadian politics and law making in the 1920's but Canada continues to be ruled by a Royal Elite, that has no claim to Royalty other than that granted by power and position. Canadians should notice this when they lose their driving license for non-driving reasons, or for activities that do not require a driving license. A political system in which the citizens decided which laws they lived under would at least allow such questions and have many open discussions.
But that isn't Canada. In Canada citizens can, and people have, lost their drivers license and ability to function in a car based society, including losing jobs, due to police created laws and enforcement.
Something those ruling Canada would rather we not talk about.
