Saving Canada’s Democracy

Former Premier Calls for Forensic Audit on Muskrat Falls ...

Last Surviving First Minister That Helped Craft The Constitution Act 1982/Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Canada’s democracy is in peril.

The numerous measures instituted by Canada’s fourteen Governments in the last year and a half speaks to an unprecedented assault on individual rights and freedoms.

This year is only the 40th anniversary of a written Charter of Rights and Freedoms in Canada that applies to all Canadians.  It is the 230th year of America’s Bill of Rights.

The beginning of the Charter says:  the Supremacy of God and the rule of law.  Everything that follows is within this context.

In Section 52 of the Constitution Act 1982, it declares that the Constitution is the Supreme Law of Canada.  And The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a part of the Constitution Act 1982.  Hence, the provisions of the Charter are the Supreme Law of Canada.

Section 2 of the Charter lists our individual freedoms:  of expression, conscience, religion, and the press. It also lists freedom of assembly and association.  Government measures have especially violated the freedom to assemble and associate.

Section 6 of the Charter lists our individual rights of travel anywhere in Canada and to leave Canada.  And it lists the right to pursue a livelihood anywhere in Canada.  People have lost and are losing their jobs across this nation because of their medical status.  Obviously, this violates the right to pursue a livelihood.

Section 7 of the Charter lists the right to life, liberty and the security of the person.  By coercing people to take a vaccine, this is a violation of the security of the person, a person’s life and liberty.

And Section 15 lists a person’s right of equality before the law.  Presently, many people are not allowed to visit certain public places and places with a public licence because of their medical status.  This means that certain people are treated differently under the law, and therefore this violates equality before the law.

There are those who contend that Section 1 of the Charter allows Governments to override the freedoms and rights just enumerated.

This is wrong.

Section 1 applies when the country’s existence is at stake—a war or insurrection or other like dire condition in the country.  A medical condition from which 99% of the those affected recover with a fatality rate of 0.08% is hardly a threat to the country.  And even when it applies, there are four tests that must be met to qualify:  demonstrably justify the action, by law, within reasonable limits, and that the measures must be consistent with the values of a free and democratic society.

Canadians need to stand up and fight for The Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  It is a National Document  (not a Federal or Provincial Act) endorsed by nine Provincial Governments and The Federal Government. There is no other document like it that applies to the rights and freedoms of every Canadian—and it is The Supreme Law of the Country being an integral part of the Constitution Act of 1982.

If it fails to apply, our democracy is lost, and a precedent is set enabling Governments to enact new unilateral actions, without appropriate Parliamentary oversight, suppressing basic individual rights and freedoms.

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity ... the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the [European] Enlightenment. "Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet [or vaccine], and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind ... should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts. "Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas [e.g., Leftist ideology, identity politics] these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use--or rather abuse--of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting immaturity. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from immaturity by cultivating their own minds." - Kant, "An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment"
