‘I’m done playing nice with the City of White Rock’

Robin Douglas speaks to White Rock city council at Monday’s reconsideration hearing. — image credit: Melissa Smalley photo The City of White Rock is standing firm in its call for a makeshift church structure on Marine Drive to be dismantled by the end of the week, following a reconsideration hearing Monday morning. Council voted unanimously for the operations at the Church of the Holy Smoke to be ceased and the structure be cleared by July 31, following an appeal by Robin Douglas, pastor of the marijuana-centred organization. “All we’re asking is for more time so that we can find a proper home,” Douglas told council Monday, pointing out he and his supporters have “tried to do everything we possibly can to help alleviate any problems.” Douglas has been operating his church for four months out of a tent structure in the 14700-block of Marine Drive as a gathering place for people to come and smoke marijuana. Following complaints by at least one neighbour and a series of fines levied by the city, council voted July 13 to declare the structure a “nuisance” and order its removal. The city scheduled a reconsideration hearing July 20 to allow Douglas an opportunity to appeal, then, at Douglas’s request that morning – and only after seeking the advice of legal counsel – gave the pastor another week to prepare. Karen Cooper, the city’s director of planning and development services, told council Monday that she had visited the site earlier that morning and had observed that garbage had been removed and that the two tent structures had been reduced to one. In recommending a resolution for the operations to be ceased and the structure cleared, Cooper noted the tent’s use was still not in line with city bylaws and safety requirements. “The main issue is the public safety and the use of the property as an assembly place is in contravention of the bylaw,” Cooper said. In his submission to council, Douglas alleged the city had used “coercion tactics” in order to have him evicted from the Marine Drive property, including threatening his landlord with fines if he didn’t terminate tenancy. Douglas attempted to play council a video on his cellphone, in which his landlord allegedly admitted to being threatened with fines, however, Mayor Wayne Baldwin interjected after a few minutes, calling the video “illegible” and attempting to steer the discussion back to Douglas and his church structure. “We’re here to listen to your reasons why you can’t have the site cleared out by July 31,” Baldwin said. Douglas responded that he felt the gathering place meets city bylaw standards and has garnered a large amount of support from the community, with the exception of “one or two neighbours who have a problem with it.” “This is not about the structure, it’s about who we are as a church,” Douglas said. After council voted to give Douglas a July 31 deadline to have the structure removed, Baldwin commented on Douglas having parked his vehicle in front of city hall in a spot designated for disabled persons. “Can I suggest in the future that you not park in the handicapped spot as you are right now?” Baldwin said, to which Douglas replied that he had a sticker in his car. “It’s not evident,” Baldwin replied. Following Monday’s meeting, Douglas told Peace Arch News he will not comply with the city’s orders to take down the tent, although he will not resist should the city forcibly remove it after the July 31 deadline. He said he plans to contact the attorney general’s office to find out if there is an appeal process with the province that he can embark on, and also plans to file a complaint against the city under the Human Rights Act. “I’m done playing nice with the City of White Rock,” Douglas said. “They’ve stepped on the toes of their citizens and they have got to be held accountable for what they’ve done.” source

In regard to CCTV cameras in prison, we see no reason why all the States should not do so. CCTV cameras will help go a long way in preventing violation of human rights of those incarcerating in jails. It will also help the authorities in maintaining proper discipline among the inmates and taking corrective measures wherever abuses are noticed. This can be done in our opinion expeditiously and as far as possible within a period of one year from the date of this order. 29. That leaves us with the appointment of non-official visitors to prisons and police stations for making random and surprise inspection to check violation of human rights. The Amicus points out that there are provisions in the Prison Manual providing for appointment of non-official visitors to prisons in the State. These appointments are made on the recommendations of the Magistrate of the District in which the prison is situated. He urged that the provisions being salutary ought to be invoked by the Governments concerned and non-official visitors to prisons in police stations nominated including independent persons like journalist. There is, in our opinion, no real harm or danger in appointment of non-official visitors to prisons and police stations provided the visitors who are so appointed do not interfere with the ongoing investigations if any. All that we need say is that the State Governments may take appropriate action in this regard keeping in view the provisions of the Prison Manuals and the Police Acts and the Rules applicable to each State. 30. That leaves us with the question of initiation of criminal proceedings in cases where enquiry establishes culpability in custodial deaths and for deployment of atleast two women constables in each district. We see no reason why appropriate proceedings cannot be initiated in cases where enquiry establishes culpability of those in whose custody a victim dies or suffers any injuries or torture. The law should take its course and those responsible duly and appropriately proceeded against. 31. As regards deployment of women constables all that we need say is that the States concerned would consider the desirability of posting women constables in the police stations wherever it is found that over a period of past two years women were detained in connection with any criminal case or investigation. Needless to say that in case women constables are needed in such police stations for interrogation or detention, the State shall provide such infrastructural facilities for such constables as are required. To sum up: 1. The States of Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Tripura and Nagaland shall within a period of six months from today set up State Human Rights Commissions for their respective territories with or without resort to provisions of Section 21(6) of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993. 2. All vacancies, for the post of Chairperson or the Member of SHRC wherever they exist at present shall be filled up by the State Governments concerned within a period of three months from today. 3. Vacancies occurring against the post of Chairperson or the Members of the SHRC in future shall be filled up as expeditiously as possible but not later than three months from the date such vacancy occurs. 4. The State Governments shall take appropriate action in terms of Section 30 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, in regard to setting up/specifying Human Rights Courts. 5. The State Governments shall take steps to install CCTV cameras in all the prisons in their respective States, within a period of one year from today but not later than two years. 6. The State Governments shall also consider installation of CCTV cameras in police stations in a phased manner depending upon the incidents of human rights violation reported in such stations. 7. The State Governments shall consider appointment of non-official visitors to prisons and police stations in terms of the relevant provisions of the Act wherever they exist in the Jail Manuals or the relevant Rules and Regulations. 8. The State Governments shall launch in all cases where an enquiry establishes culpability of the persons in whose custody the victim has suffered death or injury, an appropriate prosecution for the commission of offences disclosed by such enquiry report and/or investigation in accordance with law. 9. The State Governments shall consider deployment of at least two women constables in each police station wherever such deployment is considered necessary having regard to the number of women taken for custodial interrogation or interrogation for other purposes over the past two years. 32. These petitions are, with the above directions, disposed of. Liberty is, however, reserved to the petitioner to seek revival of these proceedings should there be any cogent reason for such revival at any time in future. No costs.

So the UN has concluded its findings on the UK amongst others Human Rights records.

Principal matters of concern and recommendations
Applicability of the Covenant and the domestic human rights framework
5. The Committee notes that the Covenant is not directly applicable in the State party and throughout its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, and recalls that several Covenant rights are not covered by the Human Rights Act 1998. It is also concerned about the slow progress in introducing the Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland and about the lack of a comprehensive mechanism for the review of existing gaps and inconsistencies between the domestic human rights legal framework and the rights covered in the Covenant. Finally, the Committee is also concerned about a reported plan to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and replace it with a new Bill of Rights for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and that such a development will weaken the degree of protection afforded to the rights enshrined in the Covenant, within the domestic legal order (art. 2).

It strikes a cause of concern regarding the Conservative governments plan for a British Bill or rights.

and so they did -
"It is not just the Human Rights Act which needs looking at, it is the convention which underlies it. The human rights convention was drawn up 55 years ago, in 1950-51. But it contains absolute rights that can never be qualified. When the charter states that no one should be subjected to 'degrading treatment', who defines what degrading means? In the end, the decision is made by a judge. When it refers to a right to respect for family life, does it mean a family made up of a father, mother and two children, or a family of two lesbians with adopted children? In a democratic society, laws should be made by democratic institutions, not by judges."
The Criminals' Rights Act 1998
October 2, 2000 was grandly declared 'Human Rights Day'. That was the date the Human Rights Act came into effect. Its proponents argued passionately that it would empower the weak and the oppressed. Six years on, it is viewed rather differently - as the refuge of terrorists and scoundrels, reports Ross Clark
