The Charter of Rights missing from government web site

This is rather amusing. Someone sent me a link to the government web site of official documents. Look what happenings when you click on the Canadian Charter of Rights - it's not there.

I'm sure it's just a mistake but right now it is a profound one since Justin Trudeau, Rob Ford and Jason Kenney have thrown the Charter of Rights out the window. Stephen Harper was an enemy of the Charter but so is Justin Trudeau. That's why I call him Commodus from the movie Gladiator. Justin's father supported civil liberty but he does not.

The Charter of Rights protects civil liberty by law. It is the highest law of the land so when a federal, provincial or municipal government makes a law that violates the charter, that law is illegal similar to the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

This is why the Constitutional Rights Centre is opposing lockdowns and why Dr Kulvinder Kaur keeps quoting it. In addition to the freedom of religion, the freedom of association, the freedom of the press, the right to lawful assembly and the right to legal representation, mobility rights are also protected by the charter. The right to move. This is the actual charter and this is the text.
