‘Stacking the Supreme Court’

When President Trump was making U.S. Supreme Court appointments, media – including Canadian – made a loud fuss about ‘stacking the court’. Trudeau is doing the same thing in Canada and no one cares…

Neither her career nor her thinking come close to qualifying her for the Supreme Court of Canada. Her appointment is transparently political. It does a disservice to the court that will have to welcome her, and to the rule of law in Canada.”

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Friday his nomination of Michelle O’Bonsawin to the Supreme Court of Canada. She will become the first ‘Indigenous’ {sic} person to serve on Canada’s highest court…

{Canadian Aboriginals are ‘Indigenous’ to Siberia and Mongolia…}

‘Activist Court Undermining Canadian Justice’

Another ‘interpretation’ of the Charter by activist judges, yet again undermining the will of Parliament:

The Supreme Court of Canada, the super-legislature to which Canadian politicians have outsourced their moral judgment.”

‘Feds Trying To Grab More Power’

Another flaw in Canada’s governance’

Given that the Prime Minister appoints the lawyer/judges of the Supreme Court of Canada, the odds are that the Court will continue its policy of siding with the federal government, regardless of the Constitutional merits of the case:

‘Canada’s Flawed Charter’

In Case You Missed It(from 2017):

Until 1982, Parliament had the Constitutional power to overrule the Supreme Court. Now, the legal profession rules, thanks to lawyer Pierre Trudeau. Our Constitution is our Nation’s achilles heel, rather than our anchor…

‘Bypassing The Canada Gazette’

Skipping publication in the ‘Canada Gazette’ dispenses with a time-honoured procedural safeguard that allows these decisions to be known to both Parliament and the public. If regulations aren’t published in the Gazette, they’re still valid. But they’re also in violation of the democratic principle that all laws must be knowable to the public. Violating that principle means that members of public cannot be subject to penalty for failure to comply.”

‘Reflections on the Charter’

Rather than protecting us from government overreach, the Charter is being interpreted to justify it. After 40 years, the Charter is still one of the worst bargains in Canadian history.”

‘Supreme Court Playing Politics Again’

The unaccountable, political activist lawyer-judges on the Supreme Court of Canada are at it again:
“The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the Government of Canada is fully within its jurisdiction to impose a carbon tax on provinces, even if the duly-elected governments of those provinces oppose the imposition of such a tax.

“Their rationale? The ‘wisdom’ of Greta Thunberg.

‘Meanwhile, in the U.S.’

‘Lockdowns and Business Closures declared unConstitutional’
Some American courts seem to be working — unlike Canada’s, whose courts and Constitution are proving worthless in crunch time…

The Constitution cannot accept the concept of a “new normal” where the basic liberties of the people can be subordinated to open-ended emergency mitigation measures. Rather, the Constitution sets certain lines that may not be crossed, even in an emergency. Actions taken by Defendants crossed those lines. It is the duty of the Court to declare those actions unconstitutional. Thus, consistent with the reasons set forth above, the Court will enter judgment in favor of Plaintiffs.”

‘The Charter Is A Trojan Horse’

The Charter is a Trojan Horse.
What else would you expect from Pierre Trudeau?

First off, there is the “reasonable limits” clause in the very first section – that’s “reasonable limits” as defined by unaccountable, politically-appointed judges. It’s deliberately written in an open-ended fashion so as to allow the manipulation of our so-called ‘rights’.

‘Province Still Ignoring The Constitution’

These interprovincial roadblocks are a clear and flagrant violation of the Canadian Constitution {See below}…

   “With some exceptions, people are not allowed to cross the Quebec border into New Brunswick during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
