School Corporal Punishment: To be clear, the Supreme Court January 2004 rulings on Sec.43 removed physical discipline from all educational settings, public and private. It’s alarming that a Justice, having little knowledge of Canadian law, would be in a position to recommend criminalizing something (School CP) that hasn’t existed for 12 years now. Unfortunately, the Justice’s lack of knowledge in this reflects poorly on the basis for the other 94 TRC recommendations.
