And we could all seeing it coming.
It makes no difference if you are exercising your legitimate rights and freedoms. Just get a blanket power to cover everything.
Ottawa has less crime since the truckers arrived . Where is the justification??
Anyone who walked the streets of Ottawa these last few day would have to be impressed with the truckers. One person remarked to me how happy everyone seemed to be. Last night others prowled the streets at 9 PM —-how peaceful and clean!! My walks to the Hill to speak all saw peaceful protests , decent people with signs exercising their rights.
This over reach is already opposed by 4 Provinces representing 37% of the country’s population.
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms , a Constitutional Measure , is the Supreme Law of Canada, Section 52 of the Constitution Act of 1982. It is there to protect the Rights and Freedoms of all individual Canadians. This is no peril to the state . This is a manufactured fear . Section 1 over ride does not apply.
Even if Section 1 of the Charter applied allowing for override there are four tests Governments have to meet. The first is demonstrably justify . How can the Canadian Government demonstrably justify this applying to Ottawa when the crime rate has gone down since the truckers arrived , who have been helping citizens of Ottawa, and moving trucks from residential areas .
Oh , yes, the power , the over reach —statism out of control
The truckers and those who support them now must make representation to all MP’S and all Senators , all Political Parties in Parliament to stop this madness in the Peoples’ House .
And then we must reestablish the Charter through the courts as being the bastion of freedom for every single Canadian .
