When I was in university, student government elections had multiple positions, like in US elections (although not nearly as many, of course).  We had separate ballots and ballot boxes for each position.  This makes the logistics of setting up the election a little more complicated, but does solve the problem of counting the ballots which otherwise becomes quite obnoxious with multiple selections per ballot.

Unfortunately, in Canada governments regularly ignore warnings about how things are going to go wrong with their policies.  The Liberal party seems to be especially prone to this.

OK, so the judge ignored the precedent that actually applies in favor of one of her own previous errors.  Sounds like an easy appeal to me.

Israel had a major problem with mass shootings in schools (it was terrorists, not disaffected former students, but many of the practical considerations are the same).  They mandated that teachers carry concealed handguns, and school shootings stoped pretty much entirely.  (Sure, they went to suicide bombings, but that's got to be dealt with by different means.)

When Politifact (which has a quite noticeable Statist slant) is saying you're gun control promotion is bogus, you've REALLY gone out there.

I'm not sure about how valid comments by Thomas Jefferson about the practical considerations of operating a newspaper would be.  Now, Benjamin Franklin, who did operate one, I'd accept much more readily.
