The Charter of Rights created a sense of dependency among Canadians. It stipulated that Canadians should depend on the government for rights and unless these rights were written down in the Charter, they had no rights. Canadians did not demand these rights. They did not even ask for them. You might wonder why the government of the day insisted that Canadians should have these rights in writing if they didnt need them and already had them. Was there more to this Charter than meets the eye?
The Charter reads:
2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
(a)freedom of conscience and religion;
(b)freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
(d) freedom of association.
The Everyone in (2) does not mean Canadians. It means everyone in the world who can make it to Canada. It now means that as everyone in the world arrives in Canada they can claim refugee status and not be questioned about it. They are then entitled to Canadian taxpayer funded welfare and medicare for themselves and their extended families for the remainder of their lives. The Charter therefore saddled Canadians with the responsibility of supporting everyone in the world as they arrive in Canada.
These are the people who really like this section: communists, immigration lawyers, government social workers and international socialists. We have them all in abundance. That is why we have "everyone" instead of "every Canadian" in the Charter. They prefer to talk about human rights rather than Canadian rights. It is a euphemism that shrouds the multi million-dollar immigration business, the planning ideas of social engineers and the politics of international communists/socialists.
Sections (d) gives everyone the right to associate. Does this mean that everyone is compelled to associate? Do people have the right not to associate? Do people have the right not to belong to an association or a union?
And in the true spirit of international communism/socialism, the Charter does not mention the right of Canadians to own property.
International socialists who appoint judges to the supreme court are apt to appoint people who think as they do about international issues rather than Canadian issues. All Canadian prime ministers since Trudeau have been international socialists. They like to impress the world rather than their fellow Canadians. Canadians as a whole do not vote for their prime ministers so there is no need for a prime minister to impress Canadians -- only control his party. Mulroney tried to be appointed leader at the United Nations after he left office. Chretien tried to have the UN moved to Montreal, even to take over the US debt to the UN while Canada had (still has) a national debt of $576 billion.
These supreme court judges are charged with interpreting Canadian laws according to their interpretations of the Charter. Canadian Supreme Court judges were appointed for life by international socialists. They interpret Canadian laws according to our international charter which was written for everyone in the world by international socialists. Do they also sing the International?Democracies that depend on a Charter or a written dogma are less democratic. There is no need for public debate. Decisions are made by appointed-for-life judges and outweigh decisions made by elected parliamentarians. We then get strange decisions about kiddie porn and centuries-old Indian treaties and the definition of spouse. And we have international socialists in Ottawa who refuse to use the notwithstanding clause to control it. Public opinion has no input as we step closer to judicial dictatorship and international socialism.
Unless Canadians change the Charter, this creeping form of international socialism and creeping dictatorship will grow and grow until Canada is no longer recognized as Canada. Blame Canada.
Two Classes of People in Canada
Canada was once a classless society a level playing field. Prime Minister Trudeau brought in a new constitution in 1982 which made bilingualism official by a new government constitutional edict. This new constitution was bestowed on Canadians as though Moses had brought it down from the mountain. Canadians did not get to vote in a referendum about it. But it was accepted by Canadians despite its flaws. It was thought at the time that it would placate the separatists in Quebec. Bilingualism then became the official policy of the government of Canada. The federal government brought in rules and regulations that gave special treatment, employment benefits, promotional benefits and preferential treatment to bilingual Canadians. Every package, every piece of instructions became bilingual.
But instead of being grateful, Quebec announced that it was not bilingual but unilingual French and invoked the notwithstanding clause of the constitution. Therefore only nine provinces were caught in the federal governments bilingual trap -- all the provinces except Quebec. Those federal civil servants who were already bilingual in Ottawa, the army, the navy, the RCMP etc moved quickly upward through the various ranks in the federal government departments because they got preferential treatment. Naturally they saw great benefits to the governments bilingual policy. It promoted them, got them a higher salary and eventually a larger pension. The upper management of all government offices eventually became bilingual.
But the others, the Canadians who only spoke English in these English-speaking provinces, got left behind, apologetic about being what they were, about not having a French accent for the e on their English keyboards. They were left at the bottom of the social scale within government circles. They were the unmentionables, almost like the untouchables at the bottom of the social scale in India. They were called bigots or racists or even reformers if they should even mention this unique Canadian form of language-racism. Special-interest groups and those who got the benefits, drummed these unilingual English speakers into silence.
Canada was no longer a classless society. The bilinguals were at the top and the English-speakers down below. The influence of a small minority had overtaken the whole country. Trudeau had fooled all English-speaking Canadians who could not speak French and turned them into second-class citizens in their own nine provinces. And the minority of English-speakers within Quebec were left even lower than second-class citizens, with a ghetto complex a minority within a minority subject to the whims of the Quebec Language Police.
The majority of our long-term prime ministers are Quebecois and therefore in favor of bilingualism in ROC. They adapted the attitude of the Charter, that those who only spoke English were somehow inferior. Unfortunately history may show that these prime ministers ruined Canada. Trudeau left us a flawed Charter with a notwithstanding clause that the feds refuse to use, and enforced bilingualism that nine provinces are forced to use -- but not Quebec.
INTERNATIONAL SOCIALISM AND THE CHARTER
When you realize that the Canadian Charter of Rights was written by international socialists, you begin to realize what they have done to Canadians.
In the true spirit of international socialism they have turned the democracy that Canadians enjoyed prior to the Charter into a judicial dictatorship. Democracy means government by the people for the people. Majority rule. It means rule by elected officials who debate and make laws and govern according to the will of the people.
Democracies that depend on a Charter or a written socialist dogma are less democratic. There is no need for public debate. Everyone has rights. The majority does not rule. Indeed minorities may foist their beliefs and lifestyles onto the majority.
In Canada because MPs have been left neutered by the Charter of Rights, Parliament often resembles a discussion group that sat for 92 days in the year 2000. Many legal and political decisions are left to the judges of the Supreme Court. These judges are appointed for life, until they are 75 or die, by the prime minister. Prime Minister Chretien is an international socialist and therefore appoints judges who are like-minded. These judges then base their legal and political decisions on an international-socialist document the Canadian Charter of Rights -- and frequently overturn parliamentary-made laws. These Supreme Court judges have wiped out 58 Canadian laws since they were allowed private interpretations of the Charter. Canadians are living in a judicial dictatorship, which is almost impossible to change.
Jim Bredin's new and Revised Canadian Charter of Rights:
We, the sensible people of Canada, in an attempt to curtail isolated arrogant politicians in Ottawa, improve Canada for Canadians, restore a semblance of common justice and control immigration; wish to promote the idea that all Canadians are equal before the law and all major changes to Canadian laws should only be made by Parliament. We wish to promote the idea that all equal Canadians are more important than their governments or their Supreme Court. All previous constitutions, charters, laws, treaties, agreements and courtroom decisions that do not fall within these parameters that all Canadians are equal -- are null and void when this revised Canadian Charter of Rights is declared.
Section 1: Within reasonable limits, Canadians have freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief, opinion, freedom of the press, communications, peaceful assembly, association or the individual wish not to associate.

Section 7: The present appointed Canadian Senate is cancelled. Two senators will be elected from each province at federal elections. Senators with criminal records will not be allowed to hold office.
Section 8: Election dates will be set by date not when the PM thinks it is appropriate. Elections will be held on a Monday following the 15 September every 4 years unless the government is defeated in parliament.
Section 9: Parliament will sit at least 7 months within a calendar year, Monday to Thursday except holidays, every year. The list of those present or absent will appear in Hansard and daily on TV while parliament is in session.

Section 22: Canadian federal politicians will only be allowed to run for office twice in successive elections.
Section 23: If a Canadian politicians constituents feel that he is not representing them in Parliament, a system to recall and replace that politician should be established.
Canadians hold these corrections are needed and self-evident. Canadians hold that this Charter of Rights and all future amendments will be put in the form of a referendum to all Canadians.
