Justin Trudeau legalizes Magic
“The witchcraft provisions in the criminal code reflect a culture, perspective, and legal system of an entirely different era. They are reminiscent of a time when women who did not conform to societal norms were not only shunned, but penalized. These provisions also reflect a primarily Christian mindset, where non-Christian traditions, including what we now may refer to as Wicca, totemism, or animism, or other traditions, were demonized as being evil. It’s perhaps no surprise then that even today these provisions are used primarily against women or against people who follow non-mainstream religious traditions.” Omar Ha-Redeye, a Toronto-based lawyer, commented on Broadly.
