    I can't see a decision like this being made by an American judge.


    The girl took the matter to the court - and won what lawyers say was an unprecedented judgment.

    Madam Justice Suzanne Tessier of the Quebec Superior Court ruled on Friday that the father couldn't discipline his daughter by barring her from the school trip.

    I'd like to know Rosie's thoughts on this.

    Public schools here routinely keep kids from going on school trips (or threaten to do so) if they misbehave.

    So the parents sure as shootin' should be able to as well.

    That judge deserves a swift kick to the ass.

    This is bizarre even by Canuckistan standards. Oh, wait, it's Quebec. It's not part of Canada. :)

    If my kids sued me, I'd spank the hell out of them.

    Which would apparently land me in jail for assault and battery.
