The Law in 7 Minutes
Welcome back, everyone! This week the vlog gets a little technical as I give a quick lesson on legal process.
Wait! Come back! Before you let your eyes glaze over and you click away in boredom let me stress why this is an important vlog for you to watch. As you know, HSLDA defends and protects rights of parents to homeschool. But do you really know what that entails? When we send updates on provincial laws and Bills in the provincial legislatures or federal parliament, it is important that you understand the basic process of how a bill becomes a law so that you can follow what HSLDA is doing on your behalf, and at which stages you may be able to get involved.
Our intention at HSLDA is to always be monitoring legal developments in your province and averting crisis on your behalf so that you can continue homeschooling without interruption or limitation. We know the law, and we know how to intervene in the process so that you don’t have to defend yourself. However, when we need your support through letters to members of parliament and so on, it is good for you to have this basic understanding of the process of law as well.
Please take a few minutes and watch the video today. You could even call in your children to watch it with you so that they too can have an understanding of the process of laws being made.
As always, please leave questions or comments here on the blog, or on the YouTube link so that we can clarify things for you.
Have a great week, and we’ll see you again soon!
