I guess SCC Judges...

Don't ever get on planes to go anywhere...

"The Supreme Court has ruled the use of sniffer dogs in random searches is unlawful. Do you agree with the decision?"

some more Liberal appointees who cant see beyond their own wallets
and dont give a damn about the Canadian public, come hell or high water as Martin once said. These people have put the average person in Canada in deep danger with this iodic conclusion.

How DARE you peons question our all-knowing philosopher kings?

It is becoming increasingly clear that the only way to live free in canadian society is to simply IGnore the law whenever possible.

If a person chooses to leave their home with contraband in their possession then I figure they are fair game. If a police officer can smell your dope and formulate grounds to arrest or detain you, then why not allow the use of a method that has a better sense of smell? Once the odour of your contraband goes beyond your personal space, it becomes public domain (like your garbage). I wonder at the mentality of our Courts. I wish we could hold them legally responsible for the damages their decisions cause. Let's not forget, there ARE dogs that detect explosives, and many drug dogs also detect firearms! We'd hate to miss those now wouldn't we?

the k-9 police units are a valuable and very finite resource... they are not being tasked to wander around aimlessly and harass innocent people.

but don't try tell that to the leftosphere.

This would be a textbook use of the notwithstanding clause as part of federal legislation. Presumably, as a result of this SCC ruling, a person caught with 20 pounds of explosive in luggage destined for an airliner would be aquitted based on an illegal search.
