Emory assumed that being on Canadian soil, Canadian laws would apply, not treasonous foreign intrusions. He assumed contempt of court was illegal here. He simply had more respect for the legal industry here, than was justified.

Brent, you are starting to sound like the Canuck version of Bwalker. Put your metalworking skills to building boats, not tinfoil hats.

Emory was an idiot who thought he was smarter than his lawyer and the DOJ, proving once again that consistent and prolonged pot use impacts your judgement and affects your intelligence. The only thing martyr and moron have in common is the number of syllables and the first letter. Emory is the latter, not the former.
The suggestion being that those who design and build some of the best cruising boats anywhere, should not have political opinions, nor be allowed to express them?
The suggestion being that those who's political opinions dont match your own, shouldn't express them?
Ya Sure!

Re: Stay out of Georgia

Obviously subtle hints and straight forward rebukes are not working...

Brent,

Your opinions are not the issue here; the problem is that you've hijacked this thread about Georgia maritime law enforcement and morphed it into one man fiesta with the current Canadian leadership as the piñata.

That's just bad form.

Since you are obviously interested in keeping this exchange of ideas and opinions going, why not just start a new thread in the appropriate off topic area?

You do know that the Saskatchewan Party is right wing, don't you? And that it is in power in Saskatchewan? And that since it has come to power, Saskatchewan has had the best performance out of all Canadian provinces, including Alberta?

They had to clean up from the NDP socialist first though. The PC government you were referring to has been out how long? Over 20 years... talk about dragging up things from the past!

Emory maybe should have had a better lawyer to advise him of where he was going wrong. He flaunted the law... I have no sympathy for that pot head.

And I am guilty of feeding the hijack.

I will try and watch the thread OP in the future more carefully, but we all know threads drift notoriously.

I can only commit to trying not to contribute, but please don't pounce on me if my opinionated self gets the best of me

Re: Stay out of Georgia

We started by discussing overly aggressive cops in Georgoia, an appropriate warning to cruisers, and an ex cop posted a great post, suggesting that Georgoia is not the only place where that is a problem, and giving a great video on what happened in Pennsylvania, right next door to the great white north.
I responded by showing how Canada's current prime minister supports such abuses of human rights , an appropriate response and warning. Under his leadership, the mounties are stepping up their harassment of boaters this summer.

So you have a problem with boating laws being enforced? You know, the safety ones?

Should boat and yacht builders have to comply with safety standards or is it harassment if their boats are inspected?

Re: Stay out of Georgia

I just read some interesting statistics in the latest issue of Sail magazine. Annual boating deaths in the US, 768. Sailboat deaths, 28.
There are no inspections of homebuilt boats in Canada, nor are they justified. Failures of such are so rare as to be a non issue.
Back in the 80s the govt wanted the Canadian Coast guard to do law enforcement. They Said ""No Way. We are here to save lives. If we become big brother, people will put off calling us til the last minute, and people will die as a result. "One of them told me "If they try make cops out of us, we will be out on the picket line immediately." They asked the Mounties if they would do more marine law enforcement.The mounties said "Give us the money and we will put more cars and cops on the road. There are serial killers , child abusers, armed robbers and rapists to catch. No way we should be wasting scarce resources looking up some boat's **** pipe, while victims keep dying"
The Coast guard, being unionized,won, but the mounties lost.
Do I have a problem with government squandering money on harassment of boaters, who cause no problem to anyone, and are minding our own business, while serious criminals are allowed to be free, due to overecrowded courts, and the resulting unreasonable delays? Damned right I do!

Question Re: Stay out of Georgia

So no Navy or Coast Guard ships can stay there? That's interesting. I wonder how they handle that situation>
