Bylaw overrides civil rights

Re: “Brits like Surrey’s grow op bylaw.”

Of course the Brits would love this policy! It usurps and suppresses civil rights and liberties in the name of “public security.” The Brits can reference all the wildly exaggerated balderdash of the dastardly RCMP who shamelessly lie and cajole the media and public about marijuana and the teeny tiny “threat” it poses to the public in an effort to keep their jobs relevant. The Brits live for this Orwellian New-World-Order stuff!

Apparently a police camera in every home is the only way we can all be truly “safe.” So what if we have no free will? Who needs personal freedom when Big Brother can do all of our thinking for us!
