In this clip from yesterday's livestream, Sheila Gunn Reid and David Menzies answer a viewer question:
Sheila, David, I love you both, please talk about how imperative it is for Canadians to understand the Charter of Rights and its hierarchy over [and] emergency state.
“Actually, I got some good news this morning,” responds Sheila, who explains that Jason Kenney's government will be repealing Alberta's Bill 10, which gave politicians extraordinary power during the pandemic.
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms warned about the Act's overreach in April of this year:
The passing of Bill 10 last week means that, in addition to the already existing powers, one single politician can now also write, create, implement and enforce any new law, simply through ministerial order, without the new law being discussed, scrutinized, debated or approved by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.
A cabinet minister can now decide unilaterally, without consultation, to impose additional laws on the citizens of Alberta, if she or he is personally of the view that doing so is in the public interest.
What about Ontario's lockdowns? Sheila gives some advice: “Jason Kenney, call your friend Doug Ford!”
