And nobody helps

globeandmail.com: Subway assault prompts security review "Security Guards" (so called) could not do anything but call police - job standard procedures - while a passenger was beaten by an assailant. None of the "good citizens" (sic) of Quebec bothered to help either.
Quebec Public Security Minister Jacques Dupuis has asked for a review of security procedures in Montreal's subway after a woman was allegedly beaten by an assailant while M├ętro guards stood by, arguing it was not their job to help.
And of course the anti-everything crowd has made it impossible (or nearly so) for the average Canadian woman to defend herself from assault by the average Canadian man.

Canada is fast approaching the "Natural State" as described by Hobbes.
and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.
Civilization was founded to keep the strong from preying on the week, and it did this long before there were 911 dispatch systems by relying on EVERYONE to aid one another. Apparently, we are sinking back to that state, which Hobbes called a state of war.
where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them
Disarmed victims, aren't even allowed the use of modern tools for defense. [h/t Wonder Woman]
