The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a document that is much like the Declaration of Independence in that it outlines the Rights and Freedoms of peoples.
Saskatchewan's John Diefenbaker, Canada's Prime Minister from 1957 to 1963, was responsible for the Bill of Rights, which turned out to be a rather toothless piece of legislation. Pierre Elliot Trudeau is the Prime Minister responsible for the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is enshr…ined in Canada's Constitution. ( Full Answer )

What is Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms section 2 fundamental freedoms and section 14 equality rights in the Constitution Act 1982 Part 1?
Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms sets out basic freedoms to which every person in Canada isentitled. These include "freedom of conscience and religion;freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, includingfreedom of the press and other media of communication; freedom …ofpeaceful assembly; and freedom of association." The freedom of conscience and religion means thateveryone in Canada is free to hold facts, thoughts, or viewpointsto be true, irrespective of the views of others. It also means thateveryone in Canada has the freedom to follow (or not to follow) anyreligion. The freedom of thought, belief, opinion, andexpression means that everyone in Canada has the freedomto voice their views to others. This includes the freedom of thepress to disseminate information to the Canadian people, andprotects the freedom of everyone in Canada to use diversecommunications methods to do so. The freedom of peaceful assembly means thateveryone in Canada has the freedom to assemble in a peaceful way todemonstrate or to protest actions of organisations and, inparticular, the Government and Parliament themselves. The freedom of association means that everyone inCanada has the freedom to associate with groups; this most commonlyrefers to the freedom of Canadians to associate with politicalparties in the course of the political process. Section 14 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms sets out that any party or witness in a Court proceeding whorequires the assistance of an interpreter to understand what isgoing on (i.e., in the case of someone who does not speak thelanguage of the courtroom, or who is hard-of-hearing) has the right to interpretive assistance .

Seemingly, natural rights and freedom has affected society very little. The willful building of an empirical government to better conform with the political theater of International law, has been supported unquestioningly by the vast majority of the people. In the United States of America there is a… Constitutional government based on common law principles and an understanding that the people are the original holders of the political power and more than capable of living their lives self governed. The supreme law of the land is the Constitution yet most people don't know it as law, many hardly know it as text. The only way for the people can retain their natural rights is by emphatically asserting them. People today do not emphatically assert their rights and barely even acknowledge their rights are being destroyed. The people still talk of our constitutional government, some even sound like they know what they're talking about, but they pay not attention to who it is that is really governing this country. The American people have sacrificed their God given rights, in order to serve the bureaucrats that have taken charge. The administrative agencies created by Congress, some by the President, are the leaders who rule and they rule with an iron fist. I insist that amongst the rights of the people is the right to drive peaceably and lawfully without government interference. There are many Americans who will emphatically argue the administrative agencies assertion that driving is not a right it is a privilege. Whether you agree driving is a right or you disagree it doesn't change the fact that the Departments of Motor Vehicles across the country, these bureaucratic agencies who have no Constitutional authority outside the jurisdiction plainly outlined by Congress, have found their way around that pesky document and have quite effectively and quite astoundingly legally dismissed your IV, V, AND VI Amendment rights to due process of law, the right to be secure in you property and effects, the right to not incriminate yourself...It's terrifying to think of how ingeniously they have taken your property, converted it into property of the state, granting license to drive the streets you all ready had the right to drive before they took ownership of your car and granted you a license. I use the DMV as just one example of runaway government in the form of administrative agencies that range from the ATF to the SSI. From the FBI to the CIA, the FCC to the DEA, the ONN AND ONN AND ONN and of course there's FEMA. All of these agencies have presumed jurisdiction over you without even knowing you actually exist, but the minute you do exist to them, they will quite naturally treat you as if you are subject to their jurisdiction. Being good citizens and law abiding decent folk, most people happily go along with the bureaucrats presumption and every body is happy and nobody really seems to care that their rights have been discarded in favor of a system.

The Charter is an effective part in law making. The Constitution sets out the basic principals of government in Canada when classifies the powers of the three branches of government which is the executive, judicial, and legislative. The judicial branch makes decisions about the disputes Canadians …have by interpreting how to apply the Charter. It destroys laws that limit rights in an unfair way. Our legal rights are a very important part in law making today. It functions well when people both understand their legal rights and lives up to their legal responsibilities. This law affects every aspect of our lives every day. Sometimes though, our rights are violated and because of that we go to court and try to win the case. Then if the government thinks it's a good change, they will make a law to help overcome that circumstance again. An example of this was when a deaf, new mother went to the hospital to give birth to her twins. Before, when they used to see a doctor, a non- profitable agency used to give them sign language interpreters. But when the agency was low on money, they stopped their service. After giving birth to twins, the new mother watched as the babies were taken away from her. She was unable to ask questions or get answers on what was happening. This lady and her husband, along with a friend, took this case to court. They felt that by failing to provide interpreters, the government was violating her equality rights. After bringing this case to the Supreme Court of Canada, the group won and the government provided interpreters for all deaf people. ( Full Answer )
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a charter stating that Canadians have freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association, and are assumed innocent until proven guilty a court of law.
in 1989 the Canadian charter of rights and freedom was added to the Constitution act.
The pros of this constitution are that it includes equality rights and fundamental freedoms. People deserve to live under a constitution that recognizes societies needs and rights.
The person most credited with creating the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Pierre Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada from X to X, and X to X. The Canadian Minister of Justice at the time the Charter was enacted, Jean Chretien, is also given substantial credit. No doubt, they were ably assi…sted by legal counsel and civil service staff. In addition, the overall constitutional amendment that included the Charter was negotiated and agreed among the Premiers (legislative prime ministers) of Canada's ten provinces, in addition to Mr. Trudeau. Queen Elizabeth had a lot to do with the charter of rights, she had to sign the charter of rights and had to proof read it. I hope I helped :P ( Full Answer )
This question is more a question of opinion, but my answer is that it is quite effective on protecting our individual rights and freedoms. If you are having a problem with someone discriminating you, then you can take it to court and chose what you want to do (sue, charge,etc) Take this for example,… a deaf couple walked it a hospital and the wife of the couple was about to go into labour and they couldn't speak and there were out of interpreters. The hospital took her baby and she had no clue what was going on and afterwards they took this to court as discrimination against the deaf. put that into consideration when you make you opinion. The effectiveness varies with your position in the social strata. "Second class" citizens (poor, homeless, mentally impaired, aboriginals, youth, sex trade workers) often find that their rights are, by and large, ignored. In a similar fashion, Canadians outside of Canada, or those accused of crimes in foreign countries (e.g. Omar Khadr, now 21 and still at Guantanamo after 5 years) are often denied Charter Rights and the support of the government.

How did the treaty of La Grande Paix de Montreal contribute or lead to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms?
It was the peace treaty between the Iroquois and the French settlers in 1701. It started the charter by allowing freedoms for any race or religion and allowing more freedoms.
South Africa was colonized by the English and Dutch in the seventeenth century. English domination of the Dutch descendents (known as Boers or Afrikaners) resulted in the Dutch establishing the new colonies of Orange Free State and Transvaal. The discovery of diamonds in these lands around 1900 re…sulted in an English invasion which sparked the Boer War. Following independence from England, an uneasy power-sharing between the two groups held sway until the 1940's, when the Afrikaner National Party was able to gain a strong majority. Strategists in the National Party invented apartheid as a means to cement their control over the economic and social system. Initially, aim of the apartheid was to maintain white domination while extending racial separation. Starting in the 60's, a plan of ``Grand Apartheid was executed, emphasizing territorial separation and police repression. . With the enactment of apartheid laws in 1948, racial discrimination was institutionalized. Race laws touched every aspect of social life, including a prohibition of marriage between non-whites and whites, and the sanctioning of ``white-only jobs. In 1950, the Population Registration Act required that all South Africans be racially classified into one of three categories: white, black (African), or colored (of mixed decent). The coloured category included major subgroups of Indians and Asians. Classification into these categories was based on appearance, social acceptance, and descent. For example, a white person was defined as ``in appearance obviously a white person or generally accepted as a white person. A person could not be considered white if one of his or her parents were non-white. The determination that a person was ``obviously white would take into account ``his habits, education, and speech and deportment and demeanor. A black person would be of or accepted as a member of an African tribe or race, and a colored person is one that is not black or white. The Department of Home Affairs (a government bureau) was responsible for the classification of the citizenry. Non-compliance with the race laws were dealt with harshly. All blacks were required to carry ``pass books containing fingerprints, photo and information on access to non-black areas.. In 1951, the Bantu Authorities Act established a basis for ethnic government in African reserves, known as ``homelands. These homelands were independent states to which each African was assigned by the government according to the record of origin (which was frequently inaccurate). All political rights, including voting, held by an African were restricted to the designated homeland. The idea was that they would be citizens of the homeland, losing their citizenship in South Africa and any right of involvement with the South African Parliament which held complete hegemony over the homelands. From 1976 to 1981, four of these homelands were created, denationalizing nine million South Africans. The homeland administrations refused the nominal independence, maintaining pressure for political rights within the country as a whole. Nevertheless, Africans living in the homelands needed passports to enter South Africa: aliens in their own country.. In 1953, the Public Safety Act and the Criminal Law Amendment Act were passed, which empowered the government to declare stringent states of emergency and increased penalties for protesting against or supporting the repeal of a law. The penalties included fines, imprisonment and whippings. In 1960, a large group of blacks in Sharpeville refused to carry their passes; the government declared a state of emergency. The emergency lasted for 156 days, leaving 69 people dead and 187 people wounded. Wielding the Public Safety Act and the Criminal Law Amendment Act, the white regime had no intention of changing the unjust laws of apartheid.. The penalties imposed on political protest, even non-violent protest, were severe. During the states of emergency which continued intermittently until 1989, anyone could be detained without a hearing by a low-level police official for up to six months. Thousands of individuals died in custody, frequently after gruesome acts of torture. Those who were tried were sentenced to death, banished, or imprisoned for life, like Nelson Mandela.. Nelson Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa on July 18, 1918. His father was Chief Henry Mandela of the Tembu Tribe. Mandela himself was educated at University College of Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand and qualified in law in 1942. He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party's apartheid policies after 1948. He went on trial for treason in 1956-1961 and was acquitted in 1961.. As the struggle for freedom reached a new intensity in the early fifties, the ANC saw the need for a clear statement on the future of South Africa. The idea of a Freedom Charter was born, and the Congress of the People Campaign was initiated.. During this campaign the ANC and its allies invited the whole of South Africa to record their demands so that they could be incorporated in a common document. The document would be accepted at the Congress of the People and would become the Freedom Charter. Thousands of people participated in the campaign and sent in their demands for the kind of South Africa they wished to live in. These demands found final expression in the Freedom Charter.. The people of South Africa, declare for all our country and the world to know: . we. that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black and white, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of the People; . that our people have been robbed of their birthright to land, liberty and peace by a form of government founded on injustice and inequality; . that our country will never be prosperous or free until all our people live in brotherhood, enjoying equal rights and opportunities; . that only a democratic state, based on the will of all the people, can secure to all their birthright without distinction of colour, race, sex or belief; .

Let all who love their people and their country now say, as we say here: . 'THESE FREEDOMS WE WILL FIGHT FOR, SIDE BY SIDE, THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES, UNTIL WE HAVE WON OUR LIBERTY.' . The campaign for the Congress of the People and the Freedom Charter united most of the liberation forces in South Africa. Nothing in the history of the liberation movement in South Africa quite caught the popular imagination as the Congress of the People campaign. It served to consolidate an alliance of the anti-apartheid forces of the 1950s composed of the African National Congress, the South African Indian Congress, the South African Coloured People's Congress, the South African Congress of Democrats and the South African Congress of Trade Unions (SACTU) into a non-racial united front known as the Congress Alliance. It also served to sustain political activity after the curbing of the Defiance Campaign and to develop and strengthen political organisation by broadening the geographical and social bases of the liberation movement and raising the political consciousness of the masses by offering a vision of an alternative social order.. The Congress of the People gathered at Kliptown, outside Johannesburg on June 25 and 26, 1955. This was a large, colourful and exciting event. In 1950, 26 June had been declared Freedom Day. In May 1950 the Communist Party of South Africa (CPSA) had called for a May Day strike to protest against the Unlawful Organisation Bill. The strike resulted in police violence, and the death of 18 people.. On 20 June 1950 the CPSA was forced to dissolve, and the ANC took over the planning for a 'Day of Mourning' for those who died in the May Day strike. They also called for the day to be celebrated as Freedom Day in the future.. The three thousand delegates who gathered at Kliptown on 25 and 26 June 1955 were workers, peasants, intellectuals, women, youth and students of all races and colours. The Congress of the People constituted the most representative gathering in the history of South Africa. It adopted the Freedom Charter, a vision for a united, non-racial and democratic South Africa.. Subsequently all the members of the Congress Alliance adopted the Freedom Charter in their national conferences as their official programme. Thus the Freedom Charter became the common programme enshrining the hopes and aspirations of all the progressive people of South Africa.. The Freedom Charter is a unique document in that for the first time ever, the people were actively involved in formulating their own vision of an alternative society. The existing order of State oppression and exploitation which was prevalent in the 1950's (and earlier) was totally rejected. . The notion of a Charter was first mooted at the annual Congress of the African National Congress in August 1953. Prof Z K Mathews formally suggested convening a Congress of the People (C.O.P.) to draw up the Freedom Charter. The idea was adopted by the allies of the ANC, the South African Indian Congress, the South African Coloured People's Organisation and the South African Congress of Democrats. . The Congress of the People was not a single event but a series of campaigns and rallies, huge and small, held in houses, flats, factories, kraals, on farms and in the open. The National Action Council enlisted volunteers to publicise the C.O.P, educate the people, note their grievances and embark on a "million signatures campaign". . Thus when the people met on the 25th and 26th June 1955, the Congress of the People that was convened in Kliptown, near Johannesburg, represented a crucial historical moment in establishing a new order based on the will of the people. It brought together 2,844 delegates from all over the country. The Freedom Charter proclaims that South Africa belongs to all who live in it" and that "all shall be equal before the law". It pledged to continue the struggle until a new democratic order was put into place. . Hence, the Charter is a significant document because it embodies the hopes and aspirations of the black people. . The Charter was subsequently endorsed by the C.O.P. ( Full Answer )

S. 1: Rights and freedoms in Canada - The Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.
By handing over those rights to the government. Sure you have rights but only by the benevolence of the government. Our rights are:... subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by laws as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society. Prescribed by law is pretty muc…h as it sounds. Laws can be written to limit, even severely limit, our rights, provided of course the law is clear enough for us to understand. Justified in a free and democratic society sounds like a high standard to meet but it really isn't. For example you may think you have the right to the presumption of innocence. Wrong. There are crimes you can be charged with where you must prove your innocence. You may think you must be convicted before serving your sentence, again wrong. There are many crimes where your sentence starts before your trial, some before you are even charged. Almost any thing can be done as long as the government controls the court and it is trying to meet some greater social objective. That greater objective can be almost anything, it all depends on what society (really Canada's elite) thinks at the time. Of course that is just a laymans opinion. The legal arguments and discussions surrounding section one easily fills volumes. As a layman I see so many exceptions that is often feels like there are no need for rights at all. For another example you have the right not to be discriminated based on race, and yet the government has areas of Canada racial segregated, gives jobs based on race, money and access to resources based on race. And it doesn't get any better when you look at how language laws are used in Canada. Clearly section 1 means we only have those rights the government says we have and they can change their mind anytime or social shift they want. ( Full Answer )
Because they did not want certain kings to have too much power over people, like serfs could not be punished, etc. A little more info! In the year 1215 there was a king name John. In short he was an evil guy. He capture and killed his people for no reason. Also he had a habit of throwing people… in jail and forgetting about them unless they paid a fee. Eventually the Dukes (and all the other nobility... which I can't name) forced him to agree the a set of rules (known as the Charter) to how the people could and had to be treated. King John couldn't disagree because he had no support. And thus agreed to sign the Chart. The main difference was that the rights of the citizen were written down making them official.

None. The Charter applies to Canadian citizens. ==== The above answer is glaringly incorrect. First, many immigrants are also citizens. Second, the "Fundamental Freedoms" in section 2 of the Charter are guaranteed to "everyone." Third, the "Democratic Rights" (voting, etc.) are restricted to …citizens. Fourth, certain of the "Mobility Rights" in section 6 are guaranteed to permanent residents as well as to citizens. Fifth, the "Legal Rights" and "Equality Rights" (sections 7 to 15) are guaranteed to everyone. Sixth, the language ( i.e., French and English having equal status) rights apply to everyone. Seventh, minority language rights apply to citizens. Eighth, everyone has the right to seek redress through the courts for any violation of a right provided by the Charter. ( Full Answer )
This is a matter that has yet to be decided in court. Any answer now would be premature.
Governments are guided by the Charter in making laws. Courts are guided by the Charter in applying laws. Individuals, associations or the government can ask the courts to decide how the Charter applies to different situations. Before the Charter, there often was little that could be done about unf…air laws passed by an elected government. Sometimes there was no protection for minority rights or fundamental freedoms. Think about the difference that the Charter would have made to pre-Charter events in our histor The Charter has brought changes to laws that discriminate against people because of personal characteristics or prejudices. With the Charter, Canadian society has a clearer recognition of human rights and freedoms, and ways to enforce these rights. The Charter gives us tools to see that our rights and freedoms are respected by governments and laws. If a law or government action violates the Charter, we can ask a court to address this. The courts can strike down laws that violate the Charter. ( Full Answer )
