  War Measures Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The War Measures Act (enacted in August 1914, replaced by the Emergencies Act in 1988) was a Canadian statute that allowed the government to assume sweeping emergency powers.
When the act was invoked, citizens could be arrested and imprisoned without the benefit of trial or even a stated explanation.
The Act compelled enemy aliens to register with the government and was used against Ukrainian Canadians, Germans and Slavs in World War I and Italian, German and Japanese Canadians in World War II (as well as, ironically, some Jews of German origin).

Another point; Emergency Contraception at the hospital is free if it is reported as rape to the police, otherwise she has to pay for it, although I am not too sure on this.

 The Carpetbagger Report » Blog Archive » The 'Compassionate Assistance for Rape Emergencies' Act
Emergency contraception — nothing more than high-dose birth-control pills — reduces the chance of pregnancy 75 to 90 percent if taken within 72 hours of sex and would, necessarily, lead to fewer abortions.
And yet, the Bush gang omitted any reference to emergency contraception in the Justice Department guidelines — even though Justice's Office on Violence Against Women said emergency contraception was included in an early draft.
Certainly, with the emergence of inter-tribal warfare, males (at last) played a significant, probably dominant, role in all societies.

 Two ethnic groups say emergencies act would abuse rights
In some ways, said a brief from the Japanese-Canadian group, the Emergencies Act could be even more repressive than the War Measures Act, which was last invoked to deal with the Front de Liberation du Quebec during the 1970 October Crisis in Quebec.
The brief says the proposed act, unlike the 74-year-old War Measures Act, permits secret orders and regulations to be passed under all types of emergencies and at the sole discretion of cabinet.
The brief also complains that the definition of an emergency, which must occur for the act to be invoked, is too broad and that provisions for compensation for those ill treated are too weak.
