To the editor:
A good column by Tom Fletcher which really shows how much political correctness is overtaking our world. (Bowing to the Power of Judges, March 2 Kelowna Capital News.)
It has always been my belief that it is our government who is given the authority (by us the people) to write the laws of the land; why else would they be called the Legislature-the law making body of the state.
We in Canada suffer from the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, yes I repeat, we suffer from the Charter—Trudeau Senior’s creation that now takes precedence to our regular laws, enabling the courts to override the laws that were put in place by governments that we elected to do this job.
So because of dad (Pierre), the son (Justin) has little choice than to obey the court’s decision—unless he can find a way under the Charter.
No doubt the Capital News will receive a lot of response to the apparently anti-Trudeau nature of Fletcher’s column, I for one fully agree with him and sadly there is no longer anything we (Canadians) can do because we have our Charter of Rights and Freedoms which pretty much make any laws impossible to uphold.
