Musings about a new Charter Right

As can be seen by the Liberals in Ontario, the NDP in Manitoba, and the Conservatives everywhere, provincially and federally we cannot trust the governments that we elect to act in our best interests.

I am no expert when it comes to charter rights but would extending a new Charter right to a clean environment be more beneficial? Governments could be forced to ensure a clean environment and if not then they get taken to court for violation of the right.

Of course, because we have a conservative party, remove the not withstanding clause at the same time.

Anyone care to comment on if this is possible and if this would work? Recommend this Post
