JCCF: Dishonesty edition, Apr 29, 2021.

Good Lord, but the bloviating Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms just took accuracy and fed it through a woodchipper. Regarding their recent doomed action to have COVID quarantine hotels declared unconstitutional or whatever the hell they were after, here's the shrieking headline:

Really? The Federal Court said that? Well, no, not really, as the very second paragraph of that nonsense reads thusly:

While the Court did not issue the interim injunction, it found that both Charter Section 7- the right to life liberty and security of person, and Section 9 – the right not to be arbitrarily detained are engaged by the federal quarantine policies and were serious issues to be tried at a further trial.

In other words, the Court said no such thing and simply handed over the arguments to an actual trial.

The full ruling can be found here, where I draw your attention to:

In short, the ruling does not even remotely sync up with the idiotic headline on that rubbish from the JCCF.

I'm sure you're shocked.

Confirming once again that these little performances have nothing to do with law or the Constitution; it's political theatre designed to keep the rubes enraged and the shekels flowing. Winning has never been the point.
