Due to massive public outcry, as of March 21st, 2020, Canada will have a real life Purge.
However, due to copyright laws, the Canadian government is calling it The Catharsis.
“This is great!” Alex Moody said. “On that day, I can smoke as much weed as I want.”
Michael Crane, an author residing in St. John’s, NL is excited for the first annual Catharsis as well.
“Because of these hate speech laws, I can get charged for a hate crime just for saying things such as there are only two genders, and it’s okay to be white,” Crane said. “Thanks to the upcoming Catharsis, I have 12 hours a year to say what I want without any consequences.”
The Catharsis will have the following rules.
- The Catharsis will go from March 21st at 7:00pm until March 22nd at 7:00am for each time zone.
- During The Catharsis, the government will suspend all emergency services.
- During The Catharsis, the government will close all borders.
- Do not use explosives during The Catharsis.
- Do not attack high
- Do not destroy any government drones.
- All other crime, including hate speech will be legal.
How will anybody know if I’ve committed a crime during The Catharsis?
Security cameras and hover drones will be active during The Catharsis. Also, after The Catharsis, the police will investigate each crime to determine what time a crime was committed.
Isn’t that a waste of tax payer’s money?
Yes. Yes, it is.
What happens if I violate any rules of The Catharsis?
The police may arrest you sometime after The Catharsis.
Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of The Catharsis?
No, it doesn’t.
If I kill my boss, can I still get fired from my job.
What if I’m in one province during The Catharsis, and I kill somebody who’s in the province next to me where The Catharsis has either ended or hasn’t started yet? Will I be charged for murder?
What are the odds of that happening?
