• CLU 3M Understanding Canadian Law

    Instructor: Mr. R. D'Alessio

     When all is said and done, learning about law is really just learning about how people get along together in human society. In this course, we'll learn the history of law, aspects of criminal law in Canada, as well as civil law and family law. This course explores Canadian law with a focus on legal issues that are relevant to people’s everyday lives. Students will investigate fundamental legal concepts and processes to gain a practical understanding of Canada’s legal system, including the criminal justice system. Students will use critical-thinking, inquiry, and communication skills to develop informed opinions on legal issues and apply  this knowledge in a variety of ways and settings, including case analysis, legal research projects, mock trials, and debates.

Here, you can share your thoughts, keeping in mind that the film has drawn varying interpretations for its political overtones, including arguments in favor of left-wing, right-wing, and libertarian viewpoints. The film displays a general distrust of government, regardless of the audience's political party affiliation.  Some viewers formed an opinion about The Hunger Games as a parable of the Occupy Wall Street activity.  The top 1% richest people in the world have more money than the bottom 95% put together! Collins doesn't use the terms 1% and 99% percent, but it's clear that those in the Capitol are members of the 1% and everyone in the Panem districts is part of the 99..."
