Framinggenocide in Canada as an unlawful act of thestate spanning decades and composedof numerous distinct acts and omissions which, in aggregate, violate the internationalprohibition against genocide allowsusto understand its true nature without theentanglement caused by aninappropriate “copy and paste” of the logic pertaining toindividual criminal liability and to Holocaust-typesof genocides.

Several users reported that this solution solved the problem for them, so be sure to try it out.

      Well that was weird, but this worked for me!

    1. 9. Does Editors Canada have a code of ethics? No. Editors Canada does not have a code of ethics, but it has adopted general principles of professional editing. You can download Professional Editorial Standards from  Editors Canada for a list of these principles.

      Not having a code of ethics seems to be a big miss!

    1. Instead precise quotation should be realized in the following way. If author A wants to specifically cite a particular piece of author B’s work, then A must quote a minimum five or six word phrase in their main text that is distinctive to the passage being cited. A reader following the digital trail then clicks on A’s URL link to B’s text, crosses to it and from the top of B’s text uses Ctrl+F plus the quote text to find the exact passage involved.10. In practice this means that we must completely abandon the familiar but vague style of reference where an author summarizes and cites a text, without specifically quoting from it. Without page numbers we can only cite like this:‘Shifting functions from the government sector to off-budget bodies has been a core element in new public management (NPM) approaches (Dunleavy and Margetts, 2013)’.But we achieve precision by instead including a findable and distinctive short quote:‘Margetts and Dunleavy (2013) consider “externalizing services from the government sector to off-budget bodies” as a core element in new public management (NPM) approaches’.

      Woah, meta! Hypothesis can fix this problem perfectly! :-)
