Canadian Charter Rights, with The Hon. Brian Peckford
In 1982, the Charter was added to the Constitution, meaning that a guarantee of rights and freedoms for Canadian citizens became a part of the Supreme Law of the land. These rights and freedoms include freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief, expression, the press, peaceful assembly, association, mobility rights, and the right to liberty and security of the person.
Some would say in this season, it could be argued that many of these rights have been breached.
Here to discuss the Charter and if, or when, it is ever granted by law to be overridden, is The Honourable Brian Peckford.
Mr. Peckford is a very accomplished Canadian political leader, and is the only remaining premier that was at the table with Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and his government as they crafted the Canadian charter.
He’s such an important voice for such an important conversation to so many of us right now.
