On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, former premier of Newfoundland (now Newfoundland and Labrador) Brian Peckford joined Ezra to talk about his involvement in the creation of the Constitution Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Here's a bit of what Brian had to say about how this policy has evolved over time:

“One of the things I talk about in my speeches is that democracy is a minority government system on this planet. Always was, quite likely always will be.

“'s a very fragile concept. Very hard to sustain. And as civil involvement decreases, so does democracy, and that's what's happened in Canada. Civil involvement has decreased. Citizens have left it up to their MPs and MLAs to do everything. And have ignored what was happening, that the MLAs and the MPs [had] no more power, right?

“So suddenly now after... five decades, it's happened. There's an unease in the country.”

This is just an excerpt from the full Ezra Levant Show.
