Canadian Politics

Drunk Driving

Drunk drivers kill three people a day in Canada. The grief for the families is just as profound as if they had been mowed down with machine guns, but the law treats this as a relatively minor crime. In Roman times, crimes committed while drunk were punished doubly severely because there were two crimes committed: letting oneself get blotto to the extent they were not in control and the crime itself.

Wars of Separation

Some of the longest and most vicious wars are over separation. What we need is a formal, civilised process for separation.

  1. Hold a U.N.-monitored vote of the people in the region considering separation.
  2. If more that 60% vote for separation, the separation process begins. You need more than 50% because this is like a constitutional change and because you don’t want it drifting back under 50% shortly after the separation.
  3. There is a binding arbitration process to divvy up the wealth and debts.

That would redirect energy into politics rather than violence.
