HUMAN RIGHTS LEGISLATION
The Canadian Bill of Rights (CBR) is a federal statute enacted by the Parliament of Canada on August 10, 1960. It provides Canadians with certain quasi-constitutional rights at Canadian federal law in relation to other federal statutes. It was the earliest expression of human rights law at the federal level in Canada, though an Implied Bill of Rights had already been recognized in the Canadian Common Law. The Canadian Bill of Rights remains in effect, but its widely acknowledged ineffectiveness arises in large part to its character as a federal statute only—although as to Canadian federal law, the Bill of Rights has subsequently acquired through judicial interpretation a quasi-constitutional status through the paramountcy doctrine. The legal and constitutional shortcomings of the CBR were a significant reason that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was established to be an unambiguously-constitutional-level Bill of Rights for all Canadians, governing the application of both federal and provincial law in Canada, with the patriation of the Constitution of Canada in 1982. Since patriation, the usefulness of the Canadian Bill of Rights at federal law in Canada is mostly limited to issues pertaining to the enjoyment of property, as set forth in its section 1(a), and a slightly-broader “life, liberty, and security of the person” right than is recognized in Section Seven of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The Patriation Reference is a historic Supreme Court of Canada reference case that occurred during negotiations for the patriation of the Constitution of Canada. In its decision in the Patriation Reference (1981), the Supreme Court of Canada had ruled there was a tradition that some provincial approval should be sought for constitutional reform. The Court affirmed the existence of an unwritten dimension to the Constitution and the majority held that by constitutional convention, amendments to the Constitution require a substantial degree of provincial consent. However, a differently-constituted majority of the court held that there was no legal barrier to the federal government seeking a constitutional amendment without any provincial consent. But, under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms the notwithstanding clause still allowed governments to opt out of certain obligations.
But, beginning in 1947, the provinces began adopting human rights legislation with the Saskatchewan Bill of Rights being the ground breaker and standard for many others to somewhat emulate. The Saskatchewan Bill of Rights covered both fundamental freedoms and equality rights. Saskatchewan’s Bill of Rights is considered to have had formative influence on John Diefenbaker, who was from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Thirteen years after the Saskatchewan Bill of Rights was enacted, Diefenbaker in 1960 successfully introduced the Canadian Bill of Rights. As we know, the Canadian Bill of Rights was the precursor of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and this was not ensconced until 1982. By this time there were many arguments, enactments and rulings surrounding human rights and the law. For example, following Saskatchewan, Ontario was next to adopt human rights legislation in 1962. Further, it was not until 1977 that the federal government enacted the Canadian Human Rights Act and this only added additional fuel to the fire of what truly comprises human rights. The result has been a miss-matched enactment of different rulings by the provinces and territories until the present day.
Every politically incorrect embryonic media style moron, with little or no true capacity to judge anything political, moral, cultural or social; with their coffee in one hand and a cell phone in the other, daily trumpets forth their opinions about these matters. And the average Canadian sucks up their swill as truth. Thus, the historic blah, blah and the modern politically correct blah, blah surrounding human rights, hate/bias crimes and National Values foments fear daily like an Iranian junk yard dog.
So, what is some solution to the issues the nation faces? One could start with provision of a code of laws that are uniform from coast to coast that all cultures must bend themselves toward and adapt themselves to. Canadian Law was never intended to be bent and misshapen to fit all sub-cultural, multi-cultural desires and the desires of divergent ethnic base special interests. And, it has been under the Human Rights Legislation that special interest groups have been able to manipulate the political-social structure of the nation to the greatest degree. Further, it is under judges biased rulings pursuant to such Charter ‘questions’ brought before them that a great deal of political-moral carnage continues. It is time all judges in Canada were held fully accountable to this Biblical fact: “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbor.” (Leviticus 19:15)
And here we are faced with another Trudeau Style Buffoon working his wiles through Infrastructure and Communities. With his ilk we can be assured that Blood Shall Flow In Canada as posted on February 11, 2018 Pull the political plugs on these politically correct creeps as quickly as possible.
It is a righteous action with God that this take place.
