Bad choice of question. It is illegal to ask about married status or personal information to male / female directly or indirectly. Law of Land "Canada"



Would be interesting to know how this is illegal. JD, can you provide details of which law this question violates?

It would be a better alternative, if OMNI TV gives a warning about mature theme and adult content or offensive language before the movie. You see such warnings all the time while watching Sopranos or South Park or other programmes with mature theme.

Even when I bought Zanjeer on ROD, I got a warning that movie was 14+ only. SO why cant they apply the same tactic on OMNI TV?

Or as a last resort they can do which DD used to do or even CTV does - bleep off or censor the offensive content.



I agree, that they should give out a warning about the theme or subject content of the movies. However, they cannot bleep off a dialogue if the whole subject of the movie is not meant for the younger audiences.

I do not have any link for this but, at HRSDC work skills development program it is repeatedly told that asking personal information specific to marital status / age / number of kids / spouse occupation..etc is illegal. So, if individual opts for a legal case can be filed against the person indulging in finding about personal life. You may choose to disagree and keep collecting personal info till you land up in trouble.

JD, I wasn’t collecting anyone’s personal information, another contributor was!

However, according to my knowledge of privacy laws (you might consider that to be limited), I was under the impression that it was illegal to collect such information about people “without their consent”. Obviously if you ask a person to provide you with the information, you have their implied consent when they provide you with the information.

Of course if you do find the specific law that prevents this sort of activity (asking people their marital status), I do hope you would share that for the benefit of all contributors to this board.

Best option. Change the channel or close the TV.

Anyway, I feel that kids and teenagers are exposed to more garbage through TV and other media. So a Hindi movie of 3 hours can do less harm than, say a Jerry Springer or some other talk shows (I forgot the name, but they have silly topics like "My teenage daughters wears outrageous clothes" and blah blah).

"Shakti" comes on TV once a while, Jerry Springer is on TV 5 days a week. Kab tak kis kis se apne aap ko bachaoge?

Yeah..Jerry Springer's shows...
"I Just found that my boyfriend is cheating on me..with my own Mother !" (the exclamation mark HAS to be there)...

I really found the paternity tests amusing :D.....

The Maury show on City TV is also cool :D... The Paternity tests there are just awesome....

the above two shows sums up the term "Cultural Shock" desi's face when they move here (esp if they are with families)

Desi's...if you dont find any job anywhere.,.dont despair...You can always be a Usher in one of these shows ... :D
