Which ones? I looked back when this measure was first announced, and all I found was references to VPNs which used to allow free torrenting use. I have absolutely shit internet, so even an incredibly restricted VPN would be useful, but I found absolutely zero.

That is how both Canadian and American post-secondary education is set up to work. There is nothing below board about it, I think there are laws that demand they leave room for minorities like Africans, Native Americans, and Whites. I am pretty sure you would have to sue the government if you wanted this changed.

The only way.... Ignore the people saying contracts, no employer is going to sign a contract stating that all work you do for them is actually owned by you and they cannot profit from it. And even if they did, they sort of cease being an employer, and begin being your employee, except they pay you for the privilege of being your employee. It is sort of a contradiction, so it's impossible

Not a legal structure, a cultural one. About 50% of political Quebecians do even want to be part of Canada, so have no respect for its laws. They have enormous political clout, so pro French laws pass regardless of their legality or not.

Imagine if 50% of voting British citizens were proponents of Sharia law, it would not matter what laws where in place to restrict the governments power. When you have a highly organised majority of a democracy, there are not really any working legal restrictions on their power.
