Canada’s New Justce Minister, Jody Wilson-Raybould, believes in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
In an interview on CBC’s Power and Politics yesterday, the Minister said:
Certainly I am a child of Charter of Rights and Freedoms and believe fundamentally in equality and the principles that are espoused within it and within our Constitution.
We have an enormous amount of work to do to look at and revist legislation that we have right now …ensure as we move forward that fundamental rights and freedoms of Canadians are protected.
As Canadians, we are most optimistic when we live in a in a caring and compassionate society under a legal and political system that’s there to protect us. That’s the tremendous honour and opportunity we have to embrace that.
I won’t predict what that means to our case because we have been betrayed and disappointed too many times in the past. But, I hope it may be the beginning of a resolution.
