    It is sad to see so many ignorant of the fact that we, as Canadians, actually had more rights and freedom prior to Trudeau’s charter. Those rights and freedoms dated back centuries and were also recognised by English Common Law which also applied to Canada. They were negative rights in preventing the state/government from abusing them. Furthermore the charter has essentially given the judiciary legislative power which is contrary to our Parliamentary Democracy. It does however make a great play ground for judicial activists of all stripes. I see no reason to celebrate but would approve a day or time mourning.

    Eloquent, elegant, and filled with vital truths. Thanks for this.

    Thank goodness for such clear vision as articulated by Brian Lilley.
    Because Canadians had more “rights and freedoms” before the imposition of the “Charter”, the Charter has been deceitfully and wrongfully misnamed.
    The Charter, deviously merged at the end of the manipulated Constitution Act 1982 under Schedul B, sections 1 to 34, was imposed by P.E.Trudeau, Jean Chretien, and Endre Ouellet, all three from the province of Quebec, together with our Queen Elizabeth on April 17, 1982.
    Quebec is the only province that has not itself signed on to the Charter, highlighting how divisive this Charter thing is.
    To add insult to injury, even more devious is the sneekily snuck in section 59 of that same Schedule B, which even more deviously, convolutedly denies English-speaking Canadians in Quebec the right to have their children educated in English-speaking schools funded out of public funds. Furthermore, the Charter makes no mention of the right to own land, and has not one single word of responsibilities required to finance its much spoken of “Rights”.
    Not surprisingly, hundreds of thousands of Canadians have left the province of Quebec, and too many of Canada’s finances are submerged in deficits and debt, our vast natural Canadian resources notwithstanding.
    In short, to start restoring basic rights and freedoms to Canadians, the Charter should be correctly re-named – “The Canadian Charter of Wrongs and Restrictions”.

    We will never recover from the damage done by Trudeau. And there is another one in the wings. What social experiment awaits us if Trdeau junior has his way?

    Great for SUN talking about this tragic attack on Canadians through the activist judges and Charter of leftist Rights
