Strike Laws, Not Children.
Robertson, Heather-Jane
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n7 p555-56 Mar 2000
In 1999, a coalition of child advocacy groups, the Canadian Foundation for Children, Youth, and the Law, challenged Section 43 of Canada's criminal code, which permits "reasonable force" in disciplining children. The heavily debated issue turns on judges' varied interpretations. A court decision is expected by year's end. (MLH)
