The One Important Fact Every Media Report Left Out About That ‘Town That Banned Swearing’

A week or so ago, everyone was having lots of Footloose-joke fun at the expense of Canada’s “The Town That Dreaded Curse Words”:

Taber, Alberta — population around 8,000 — has not only banned swearing, but “yelling and screaming” are now also against the law in the small community.

Serious questions came up, too, like whether the bylaw violated (admittedly comical) Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

    Damned fucking right it violates my charter rights!

    Or maybe not. I am a white male so I have no rights or freedoms other than to be taxed by the government to pay for everybody else!

    Guess I’m a racist, I assumed the law was about natives.

    Maybe the “wiser-than-thou” sneering shitbags who are so quick to ridicule the town of Taber should try doing one of two things:

    Either:
    1) Shutting thier ill informed fucking mouths OR

    2) Reading the Criminal Code of Canada…

    Quote:…..”Causing disturbance, indecent exhibition, loitering, etc.

    175. (1) Every one who

    (a) not being in a dwelling-house, causes a disturbance in or near a public place,

    (i) by fighting, screaming, shouting, swearing, singing or using insulting or obscene language,(ii) by being drunk, or(iii) by impeding or molesting other persons,(b) openly exposes or exhibits an indecent exhibition in a public place,”

    It’s called “Cause disturbance” dipshits and it’s already illegal and has been FEDERALLY for years.

    All the smart alek “legal experts” who ridiculed this Alberta town never seemed to have a problem with this law when it was put in the Criminal Code several decades ago.

      Instead of creating new bylaws the Taber town council should have kicked the members of the Taber town police department in their lazy asses and told them to read and enforce the Criminal code a couple of times.
