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’.

Then, we have the ludicrous “Notwithstanding Clause” that allows any provincial government to override citizens’ so-called ‘rights’ by simply passing a Legislative resolution:

Notwithstanding Our Rights(Quebec Secularism Law):
The ‘Notwithstanding Clause’ of the 1982 Constitution guarantees an unequal application of our so-called ‘Rights’…
The Quebec Court of Appeal has rejected a challenge from Canadian civil rights groups to suspend parts of the province’s secularism law, known as ‘Bill 21’. While the three judges acknowledge the law is causing harm that may be irreparable…the majority agreed the province’s use of the {infamous} ‘Notwithstanding Clause’ means it should not be suspended.”

And finally, we have the deceitful Section 15, where individual legal rights are ‘guaranteed’ in 15(1), but then immediately superceded by the ‘group rights’ delineated in 15(2):

The Strange Case of Canadian ‘Legal Equality’ (Charter Section 15):
The political — and therefore, ‘flexible’ — tool that is subsection (2) means that the Constitutional Principle of Section 15(1) cannot really exist as a ‘Principle’, and merely serves as an inspirational introduction to the court-driven social engineering enabled by subsection (2).

As a result, legal equality of individual Canadian citizens has become a thing of the past…”
