EnglishItalianPortugueseSpanishGermanDutchFilipinoPolishChinese (Simplified)ArabicBengaliGreekTurkishKoreanJapanesePersianRomanian TORONTO – February 25, 2021.

Lawyers will rush to “differentiate” the issues under consideration and the consequential implications. It is what they are trained to do – much like critics who “parse” sentences and literary works. (more…)

Nursing homes scandal: unpunished violations

The photograph of Long Term Care Homes that emerges from a CBC News investigation is shocking. Not only are anti-contagion security protocols broken in these facilities while the Covid-19 pandemic is underway, but LTCs found red-handed are not punished for their behaviour. As they say in Italian, after the pulling of ears”, everything ends up in “tarallucci and wine”. It’s a fact. Inspections of Ontario’s Long Term Care Homes almost never have consequences. Homes are asked to solve the problem, but even if an inspector returns and finds the same problem, there are no fines or penalties. In very rare cases, houses are forbidden to accept new residents.

Le scuole cattoliche possono fare il giro della vittoria

TORONTO – 25 febbraio 2021. La decisione della Corte Suprema del Canada (SOC) di giovedì sulla questione Theodore school nel Saskatchewan offre una panoramica dei diritti confessionali costituzionalmente garantiti e del primato della Costituzione sulla legislazione subordinata (inferiore).

Gli avvocati si affretteranno a “differenziare” le questioni in esame e le conseguenti implicazioni. È quello che sono addestrati a fare, proprio come i critici che “analizzano” frasi e opere letterarie. Sarebbe “un dato di fatto”; ci sono questioni ristrette e implicazioni più ampie in questione. Il SOC le avrebbe soppesate, prima di decidere di NON ascoltare un appello della provincia contro una precedente decisione della Corte d’appello del Saskatchewan (SCA) in materia di scuole cattoliche a Theodore (popolazione 323).
La SCA aveva ribaltato una decisione della Corte di grado inferiore nel 2017 che aveva deciso contro la Theodore Roman Catholic School Division (TRCSD).
