    "overcoming resistance by attempting to choke, suffocate or strangle"
    What does that mean?
    I'm American and guessing that we would call "attempting to choke......." attempted murder. "Overcoming resistance"......hmm if the person was unconscious and not resisting when you choked them it wouldn't be a crime?

    Some savvy defense lawyer might try to make a case "he didn't resist, therefore my client is not guilty of overcoming resistance......."

    Stranger things have happened, especially in Canadian courtrooms.
    (I love Canada, but the legal system could use an overhaul)
