The truth is out

It was rather disturbing to read Rosemary Barton's interview with retiring Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin. Especially her reference to her interpretation of how Canada has changed from a system of parliamentary supremacy to a constitutional system where Parliament has found itself required to respect certain values in the Charter, and that judges could determine whether they'd (the Parliament had) done so.

During the interview Madam Justice Beverley McLachlin goes on to state: “But the fact is it (the Charter) became the law of the land. It (the Charter) became the Constitution, and the judiciary had no choice but to uphold that law”.

Finally, the truth is out, we do not have a Constitution, we are being ruled by a Charter, that was shoved down the throats of Canadians by our late Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau back in 1982, without asking the people, via a binding national referendum.

To add insult to injury, that new ‘law’, the Charter, our fake Constitution is subject to change any time and all the time, simply on the whim of a judge.
