Open Constitution to fight Khadr deal
There is a section in the Constitution that allows the Canadian government to set limits on your rights.
Section 33 of the Charter, also called the notwithstanding clause, allows Canada’s Parliament, provincial and territorial legislatures to pass laws that may violate certain Charter rights. They can only do this if they clearly state to the public that they are passing a law that contradicts the Charter. All levels of government must review and re-enact this declaration to Canadians every five years, or the limits automatically no longer exist. Parliament has never used the notwithstanding clause.
Perhaps this is an appropriate time to do so. Bruce Scott, Burlington
