In Canada, A Constitutional Coup D’Etat ! A Massive Conversion Is Necessary !
That is what has happened in Canada .
The legal system( I dare not say the Justice System ) , has abandoned the plain meaning of the words of the constitution —-the Justice Departments of the Governments, the Law Societies of the Provinces , The Law Faculties of the Universities and the Judiciary !
They have been involved in :
A. The blatant abandonment of the opening words of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These were meant to be the framework concepts to guide the interpretation of the subsequent provisions of the Charter .
“ Whereas Canada is founded upon the principle that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:’
By ignoring this , all decisions based on the Charter are null and void.
B. The deliberate twisting of the meaning of Section 1 of the Charter .
Not one Government in Canada through their unscientific covid mandates and lockdowns ‘ demonstrably justified ‘ their actions —a requirement of this Section. Nor did they exercise their power consistent with ‘ a free and democratic society’ another Section 1 requirement. And the legal system upheld these violations!!
C. Courts have looked with distain on independent science, the foundational principle that has allowed western society to flourish and make possible all these legal entities, their creation based upon the view that reason would prevail. Oh, that Socrates , Cicero , Bacon, Montesquieu, and Voltaire were here!!
D. The blatant , deliberate effort by THE SYSTEM to ignore the views of the only living first minister who signed the founding document of the Constitution Act 1982 . Who better to interrogate about intent?
E. The Judiciary is creating law not just interpreting it. They blatantly ignore that one of the major elements of the Constitution Act 1982 was the insertion of an amending formula . Back door constitution making is not only wrong but made redundant by the very Act they pretend they are interpreting.
All this is primarily the result of slavish adherence by the legal system to a constitutional theory of constitutional interpretation , the living tree theory , that fits well with today’s woke, obsessive attention to now and self philosophy , a sweeping attack on rules , order and the ‘ rule of law’ , leading inevitably to the destruction of the foundational Judaeo-Christian tradition on which our very success is based.
Society has lost its way , as public intellectual extraordinaire Ayann Hirsi Ali attests in her recent conversion to Christianity . A former Muslim then Atheist. As she says:
‘But we can’t fight off these formidable forces unless we can answer the question: what is it that unites us? The response that “God is dead!” seems insufficient. So, too, does the attempt to find solace in “the rules-based liberal international order”. The only credible answer, I believe, lies in our desire to uphold the legacy of the Judeo-Christian tradition.’
‘That legacy consists of an elaborate set of ideas and institutions designed to safeguard human life, freedom and dignity — from the nation state and the rule of law to the institutions of science, health and learning. As Tom Holland has shown in his marvellous book Dominion, all sorts of apparently secular freedoms — of the market, of conscience and of the press — find their roots in Christianity.’
We need a collective , institutional conversion if our Country is to regain its democracy, the rule of law and the supremacy of God.
