Your Rights, on the Radio

Dave Killion — July 7, 2011

I had the CBC on while I was driving home tonight, and I heard mention of a program they are running called “Know Your Rights“-

“Know Your Rights is an on-the-ground and in-the-field exploration of our rights as Canadian citizens. Host Craig Norris navigates the complex world of what we legally can and cannot do in our country. What freedoms do we have? And how far can we push it before someone pushes back?”

I have always found the CBC to be pro-state, pro-regulation, and pro-government, so I don’t have high expectations for this series. I will even go so far as to wager that the series will operate from the assumption that people don’t actually have any rights not granted to them by the state. Still, I am prepared to have my expectations of disappointment disappointed, and hope springs eternal. So watch this space for more on this topic. Or better yet, take a listen yourself, and tell us what you think.
