My question about is how does the law work in general. If someone does something, and no one can find a law that is being broken, then is the person free to do that thing? Or must a law give permission? Basically I'm asking what is the default position?
For example, I was curious if in the province of British Columbia employers can force their employees to keep their wages confidential. I red the Employment Standards Act but couldn't find any information on the topic. What does it mean that it doesn't say either way?
