The Law as a Solution to Ethics Behind Equity Analysis and Other Finance Professions

In spite of attempted regulations and seemingly clear incentives to avoid unethical behavior, it still occurs due to conflict in the interests of finance professionals. Changes can be made to current regulations made to abate these transgressions, alongside the creation of legal status and agencies to oversee their compliance.

Formal and Substantive Equality
  

As an irreplaceable element, equality ensures that all have equal opportunity, chance, and treatment from society and the jurisdiction they reside in. More importantly, the disregard of equality forms the basis of discrimination and the two main forms of equality seen in today’s legal theories: formal and substantive equality.

Reality of Prisons in Canada

  

The reality of prison life in Canada is different in a number of ways compared to how it is displayed in the media. American prisons systems are often criticized for the way incarcerated individuals are treated, however, the situation is just as bad in Canada.

Should Trans Women be Able to Join Female Prisons Without

Changing Their Identity?

  

In the past, trans women who were subjected to sexual assault were allowed to enter female prisons without legally changing their gender. The intent was to reduce harm and violence. However, there were instances which left female inmates vulnerable to sexual assault and rape once these inmates transferred over.

How Have COVID-19 Restrictions Affected Drug Trafficking and How

Can Changes Made to Drug Trafficking be Addressed?

  

On the one hand, while mobility restrictions, occupancy limitations, and related measures impacted the availability of street drugs, UNODC director-general Ghada Fathi Waly stated that the pandemic has only worsened illicit drug use and trafficking because of the “harmful coping mechanisms and risky behaviors” that generally surround drug use.

The Relationship Between Media and Crime Rates

  

While conclusions have shown mostly mixed results, there is a considerable amount of modern evidence that media does not influence crime rates. In actuality, the media likely only contributes to how crimes are conducted as opposed to their prevalence.

The Canadian Criminal Justice System: Changes & Improvements

  

Criminal justice in North America has not been immune to criticism recently, with issues like mass incarceration, racial injustice, and strained resources, it is time for a change. With these changes, it is important to remember that the criminal justice system is deeply integrated into society and thus will have a wide range of implications.

  Crime Rates in Canada: Why Quebec Boasts One of the Lowest

Provincial Crime Rates

  

While Quebec’s low crime rate is admirable and impressive, it is important to reflect on it with context (Moreau, 2021). While they do have a low CSI, these numbers may not accurately represent the true rate of crime due to the crimes not reported to the police.  The most underreported crime is a very serious one, rape.

Prison Rehabilitation 

  

Prisoners are pressured by society to revert to their illegal ways due to the impossibility of re-entry in their environments; with disadvantages to the access of necessities such as employment and housing, ex-convicts find little hope for success at building a conventional life in society.

  Ford’s Call for the Lockdown Police: Is it Justified Under Martial Law?

  

The military and police both protect citizens, but does this justify the right of the police to make random stops and question citizens? The key difference between the two parties is that the military has specific actions to help fight the virus. The police, on the other hand, have been ordered to make arbitrary and random stops to question a person’s whereabouts.

According to the Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking, in 2019, there were 43 foreign nationals involved in a labor trafficking scheme.

  Maintaining Federal Legislation for Carbon Pricing: What's Next for Canada?

  

The primary issue concerning the outcome of this ruling is the free reign that provinces and territories now pose towards establishing their carbon pricing mechanisms. The federal ruling is intended to maintain flexibility to design their own region and context-specific policies, as long as they meet the minimum national standards, and attempts to maintain accountability as well (King et al.).

  Canada’s Strict Immigration Laws: A Blessing or a Curse?

  

 Canada still remains an extremely difficult country to immigrate to. This is especially true since, unlike the USA, immigration is “law abiding and orderly […] everyone comes through the front door, in the open, during daylight hours” (Keller 2018). n addition, immigrants can only enter the country after “extensive vetting by Canadian authorities,” which can take months or even years (Keller 2018).

  Should judges involved in deciding on medical-related cases undergo special education to make their judgments fact-based?

  

 Many academics argue that judges and jurors must familiarize themselves with scientific knowledge to better understand scientists and their work (Santosuosso & Redi, 2003). Given that law and science are both highly challenging subjects that require ample study and knowledge, the desire to increase their seamless crossover is understandable and logical.

  Multi-level marketing: Financial freedom or cult-like behaviour?

  

 The FTC has set guidelines that help the public discern the illegal MLMS from the legitimate ones. The main difference is the sale through actual products or services that MLMs provide that pyramid schemes do not. This loophole allows for commissions to be paid on the sale of products and not on new recruitments like pyramid schemes.

  Prison Riots in Canada and the U.S.

  

 If inmates do not have legitimate means to achieve their goals, they turn to deviant and illegitimate methods (Desroches). One method many inmates choose when coming to this realization is rioting, holding hostages, and damaging property in an attempt to make negotiations with authorities; these terms are essentially focused on the goals they set out prior to the riot (Desroches).

 Nature of Hate Crimes and Laws Surrounding Them in Canada 

There is a fine line between speech that is criminally hateful versus offensive language. While perpetrators may feel protected by their Section 2 Charter rights, Section 1 clearly states that no right under the Charter is absolute. This Section explains that, while it is true we have the freedom of speech and expression, this is only to the degree that it does not infringe upon the rights of others.

Issues Surrounding Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccination

Dangers of the Notwithstanding Mechanism

Even a temporary suspension of rights was contrary to both the Charter’s true meaning and the essence of legal constitutionalism (Hiebert 5). Section 33 was originally introduced as a “last resort” mechanism, which would require serious consideration and the opinions of many. However, over time it has been made clear that the use of the Notwithstanding Clause has become increasingly discretionary.

An Analysis of the Role of Mass Media on the Criminal Justice System

 The language utilized by mass media devices tended to justify the police’s misconduct and keep controversial use of force events out of the public’s sight.

An inversely proportional relationship can be identified: as more and more people migrate from human interactions to web-based operations, there is a declining level of privacy awarded to each person.
