Those Crazy Canucks

I've never had an inclination to live in Canada, but stories like this ensure that I would not ever do more than visit.

A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl's grounding, overturning her father's punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the internet, his lawyer said.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting "inappropriate" pictures of herself online using a friend's computer.

What kind of world do we live in wherein a court can overturn a child's grounding by their parents?
