STOP THE EROSION – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS CANADA
CANADIAN FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS are listed in Section 2: of the Charter. These are primarily our rights to freedom of conscience, of religion, of thought, of belief, of expression, of the press (and of other forms of media communication), of peaceful assembly, and freedom of association.
Canadian Democratic rights are generally enshrined in Charter section 3. Here the right to participate in political activities and our right to a democratic form of government are protected through ensuring the right to vote and eligibility to serve as member of a legislature.
Canadian Mobility rights are protected under Section 6 and include the right to enter, remain in, and leave Canada. Further, Citizens and Permanent Residents have the ability to move to and take up residence in any province to pursue gaining livelihood.
Canadian Legal rights are the protected rights of people in dealing with the justice system and law enforcement. The following sections should be examined.
Section 7: right to life, liberty, and security of the person.
Section 9: freedom from arbitrary detention or imprisonment.
Section 13: rights against self-incrimination
Section 14: rights to an interpreter in a court proceeding.
Canadian Equality rights are highlighted in Section 15: and were designed to ensure equal treatment before and under the law, and equal protection and benefit of the law without discrimination. While the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was adopted in 1982, it was not until 1985 that the main provisions regarding equality rights came into effect. The delay was meant to give the federal and provincial governments an opportunity to review pre-existing statutes and strike potentially unconstitutional inequalities.
Generally, people have the right to use either the English or French language in communications with Canada’s federal government and certain provincial governments. Section 17: gives the right to use either official language in Parliament or the New Brunswick legislature.
Section 18: the statutes and proceedings of Parliament and the New Brunswick legislature are to be printed in both official languages.
Section 21: and Section 22 sustain other constitutional language rights outside the Charter other than English and French. Section 23: rights for certain citizens belonging to French and English speaking minority communities to be educated in their own language.
Other sections have various provisions to clarify how the Charter works in practice. These include,
Section 25: states that the Charter does not derogate existing Aboriginal rights and freedoms. Aboriginal rights, including treaty rights, receive more direct constitutional protection under section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982.
Section 26: clarifies that other rights and freedoms in Canada are not invalidated by the Charter.
Section 28: states all Charter rights are guaranteed equally to men and women.
Section 30: clarifies the applicability of the Charter in the territories.
Section 31: confirms that the Charter does not extend the powers of legislatures.
Finally, Section 34: states that Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, containing the first 34 sections of the Act, may be collectively referred to as the “Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms”. Or, as come to be referred to as THE CHARTER.
Canadian Fundamental freedoms are being eroded by persons like Jim Carr. Such ineptitude ensures that Blood Shall Flow In Canada as posted on February 11, 2018 But, before the dust of battle completely settles those like ‘I could care less’ Carr shall be eradicated from the Canadian public landscape.
It is a righteous action with God that this take place.

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16
