The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

This is a document of which many Canadians are unaware until their rights are violated by an entity or individual with power over them. When I was in court fighting for my daughter’s life I invoked my charter rights  and suddenly the power shifted and the corrupt court proceedings ended. Our charter rights as Canadian citizens and victims of violence were violated over and over again by the very institutions who are supposed to uphold and protect them.. Again I want to stress that the freedom of speech and fairness under the law for any  citizen of this country will only exist when we are determined to make them exist by demanding they be respected and protected. If you don’t make the words actively real, then the Charter isn’t worth the paper it’s written on and the intention of those who drafted it is trampled underfoot. Know your rights and teach them to your children lest you lose them altogether. The link below will take you to a pdf of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, please read it.
