I cant believe this! They might as well get rid of the Miranda law as well.

Damn, that's bad. A police officer can just search your house at will....that's definitely breaking your right of privacy. Not that I care much, security is virtually non-existant in South Africa.

Wow, thats an invasion of privacy. In Ontario where I lived, the polive once flew over my town with a heat sensor tech stuff to see if anyone's growing weed by looking at heat signatures and what not. They found one, and arrested the people who owned the house. The courts later rejected the charges saying the searches were illegal. By the way in my town, last year, at least 16 homes were caught growing weed, each of them producing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cannabis, one of the houses was on the same street as my house!

Yea, but the police conducted an illegal search without a warrant, besides those people could have been growing anything, for all I care they could be growing a lot of hydroponic tomatoes. I really don't care about what these people were doing, its none of my business meddling in other peoples affairs, whether they're growing weed or growing tomatoes, I just don't care. It wasn't hurting me or affecting me in any way, sure its against the law, but flying around over a town or city with infrared sensors and other such devices to find drug growers or other such people without the use of a warrant is just wrong.

Actually, it is the first step.

i have to disagree. i agree that people should have a right to privacy, but if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. if the police came to my door, with or without a warrant, i'd be happy to let them conduct a search. criminals should be brought to justice. courts saying that it is illegal to use methods of detection such as a heat-cam are taking things too far. especially if it means allowing someone who makes money from criminal activity is allowed free.

for all we know, weed sold by that person and smoked by another was the cause of a fatal car crash (just an example). if these people had been dealt with through the criminal justice system that sort of thing could and would have been avoided.

It is against privacy. However, I agree with it. This is the next step to fixing our society. Giving authority more power.

Well I sure as hell wouldn't like the police just knocking on my door and searching my house, I have absolutely nothing to hide, therefore there is no reason for them to come to my house, they need some sort of proof. You can't expect police to come to everyone's door anyways, especially when a country has a population of 32 million like Canada, its just dumb, driving into the middle of the praries or to Nunavut to search a house that has nothing in it thats the least bit illegal. In response to the weed-smoking car crashers, most people who are lit are actually pretty lazy and dont go around driving, they prefer to sit around, play videogames, listen to Pink Floyd and look at bright colors.
