Canada Legalizes Witchcraft

Witches of Canada Rejoice! Your government decided to remove old provisions which have to do with occultism, witchcraft and fortune telling. Justin Trudeau legalizes Magic According to Broadly, Justin Trudeau has ordered a broad revision to the Canadian criminal code which legalises all occult and ritual acts. Believe it or not, until today section 365 of Canada’s criminal code states that it is actually illegal to “pretend to exercise or to use any kind of witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment, or conjuration and tell fortunes”. Really? It’s 2017 for crying out loud! “The witchcraft provisions in the criminal code reflect a culture, perspective, and legal system of an entirely different era.

They are reminiscent of a time when women who did not conform to societal norms were not only shunned, but penalized. These provisions also reflect a primarily Christian mindset, where non-Christian traditions, including what we now may refer to as Wicca, totemism, or animism, or other traditions, were demonized as being evil. It’s perhaps no surprise then that even today these provisions are used primarily against women or against people who follow non-mainstream religious traditions.” Omar Ha-Redeye, a Toronto-based lawyer, commented on Broadly. We can do More! It’s up to us, to make Witchcraft Popular!

As we have previously stated in Magical Recipes Online there are many countries who ban Witchcraft and Rituals. At the same time, crimes against witches are documented daily. (Click here to read all about Modern Witch Hunts). However, year by year we try to change the mindset of people. Here in Magical Recipes Online we believe it’s our responsibility to help everyone understand the benefits of studying Witchcraft as it help us get in touch with Nature once again. It seems that now, at last, we are able to legally cast spells in Canada… hopefully soon we will be able to cast spells everywhere in the world.
