The Charter of Privileges and Permissions or Canada Notwithstanding

We are so very lucky here in Canada. We have Constitution and a Charter of Rights to guarantee our freedom. Now for the bad news, our charter does not guarantee anything. You might think you own your house, your car, you might think your children are yours and you might even think your boss is obliged to pay you for your work. Not so this is Canada our so called rights are not absolute and Parliament is omnipotent


Legislative Authority of Parliament of Canada


It shall be lawful for the Queen, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate and House of Commons, to make Laws for the Peace, Order, and good Government of Canada, in relation to all Matters not coming within the Classes of Subjects by this Act assigned exclusively to the Legislatures of the Provinces; and for greater Certainty, but not so as to restrict the Generality of the foregoing Terms of this Section, it is hereby declared that (notwithstanding anything in this Act) the exclusive Legislative Authority of the Parliament of Canada extends to all Matters coming within the Classes of Subjects next hereinafter enumerated; that is to say,

That section of the Constitution says it all they can pass any law that they desire. They can also over ride the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. So what does this mean? Very simply put, our legislators could enact a law that allows slavery if they had a mind to, there is nothing in our constitution that can prevent it. An infringement of our rights only need be prescribed by LAW. And in the interest of peace, order, and good government. The icing on that cake is the supreme court has stated time and time again that only Parliament knows what is best. More is the Pity, even if the supreme court disagreed all Parliament need do is invoke the NOTWITHSTANDING CLAUSE....Welcome to Canada......notwithstanding.
