In 450 B.C., the Ancient Romans created a code of law and called it the Laws of the Twelve Tables. It was an early effort to draw up a constitution which would be binding on the society of the time.

Inspired by their achievements in the development of a code of law, although harsh and strict many of those laws were, I have come to learn how law and order is important in any society.

In addition to those twelve amendments and addenda proposed in my previous essay, I have mused over twelve more principles that can be further processed and developed before they are added to Canada’s legal corpus. Beaming with radiance hereunder, they address concerns and issues that have been swept under the rug for well over a decade.

1). Same Day Oil Spill Intervention Law: Same-day government intervention if there is an oil spill in Canadian waters or land even if company is American-owned.

2). Ban national companies from offshoring labour in manufacturing, customer service, and computer tech support industries. For multinational or foreign manufacturing, customer service, and computer tech companies operating in Canada, production labour pertaining to products sold in Canada or to services provided to Canadians must be contracted or sub-contracted to businesses operating in Canada and contracts must be fulfilled by Canadian workers. National companies with no foreign market cannot offshore labour.

3). Protective Quotas on Imports and Cutting Certain Imports in Particular Industries.

4). Ensure military officials have access to the services of Spiritual Counsellors from Ottawa’s University of St. Paul to reduce their possibility of developing depression or to help them after a trauma.

5). Putting a Cap on How Much Money Canadian government could be sued for in trade deals, human rights lawsuits, etc.

6). Strict crackdown on identity fraud to collect multiple welfare payments. Stricter sentences for those who get caught collecting more than one welfare cheque due to multiple fake identities. 

7). Stricter sentences on personal injury insurance fraud and false or exaggerated insurance claims, as well as credit card fraud and computer hacking.

8). Laws against Yahoo Canada and Hotmail Canada News. They can only report articles based on those of Macleans Magazine, Times Magazine, the National Post, the Guardian, or The Economist.

9). A psychiatrist cannot prescribe more than two psychiatric pills to a patient and must advise patient of side-effects of pills prescribed. The psychiatrist has his/her patient sign a legal document stating that he understands side-effects of medication and that the psychiatrist cannot prescribe more than two different psychiatric pills. The legal document also states that the psychiatrist must take steps toward diminishing dosages as early as one year after patient is diagnosed with a form of depression. No more than three years after diagnosis, the psychiatrist must ensure the patient’s full withdrawal from medication.

10). Ban chemtrail planes in Canada. Investigate what those planes are that leave trails in the sky. Many people suspect those trails left behind consist of harmful chemicals sprayed for purposes unclear to the public.

11). Lobbying for a Corporation Special interest groups that lobby on behalf of national or international corporations in Canadian political spheres will be fined $200,000. Politicians accepting bribes from special interest groups or administrators of corporations or those acting on their interests will pay a fine of minimum $200,000.

12). Government institutions cannot directly write-off debts owed to them and cannot influence the write-off of unpaid debts incurred by businesses and corporations in the financial sector.
