Unreasonable decision

As Canadians, we have rights and freedoms for which thousands of soldiers, who put the good of the country before their own wants and needs, fought and died. One of those freedoms was to have our day in court. To provide evidence and testimony to a judge and/or jury who would fairly evaluate that evidence and make a ruling.
