The obvious intent of these laws is to save lives, however even that has its complications. You can most certainly use a knife to save your life or that of another person, but in many, many cases possessing a knife is illegal in Canada. The use of marijuana for recreational purposes is now legal in Canada. Drivers are no more likely to avoid driving after using marijuana, than after drinking alcohol. Many will do both. This will obviously cost hundreds of Canadians their lives, yet the Liberal Party of Canada feels that people should be permitted to use pot. Justine Trudeau in his infinite wisdom believes that knives are always weapons and must be banned. Canada's new knife laws may indeed save 5-10 lives per year. Canada's new marijuana laws will result in hundreds of deaths annually. The wisest thing to do would be to take Justine's pot away from him. Consideration should be given to limiting his use of his smartphone too. He's clearly not as wise, or deserving of trust as his Father was.
