Dear. Canada,
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is part of our Constitution, is on the precipice of destruction as we know it. > #cdnpoli #abpoli #onpoli
For the first time since enactment of the 1984 Charter, Conservatives see a path to remake Canada in their image. There are enough conservative premiers in place right now that if CPC win the next election, they will have the votes to enshrine their power, remake judiciary.
The amending formula of Canada’s Constitution requires approval of 7 out of 10 provinces representing at least 50% of the population. With an election win of federal conservatives, they will have that.
Conservatives in Canada are so desperate for federal power as it’s their one chance to change the Charter - the whole drive of Stephen Harper.

It’s been a wet dream of Conservatives to rewrite the Charter since Mulroney failed to deliver it.
Conservatives have never forgiven Pierre Trudeau for reaching consensus needed to bring home the Charter Conservatives failed to. Many Tories backed the Charter which divided Conservatives along social Conservative, anti-Quebec lines, eventually leading to the Reform Party.
Conservatives seek to attack the rights enshrined in the Charter to favour what it considers its founding Judeo-Christian religion to legitimize its favourite biblical patriarchal powers that call homosexuality a sin and women subservient. It will also attack bilingualism.
Make no mistake, the CPC and Consv premiers are in step on this. They are all using the same political playbook that foreshadows the kind of Canada they envision. There has been a shift away from their traditional Toryism inherited from Great Britain to American style liberalism.
There are “open borders” between the GOP, far right media and Canada’s conservatives. The Canadian playbook is modeled after US white Christo-social conservative liberalism.
Our current Conservatives will stop at nothing and will use any means to an end to win the next election. This is why they’ve embarked on the extremely divisive politics and intense smear campaigns and disinformation.
Jason Kenney in Alberta is working hand in glove w Harper. Kenney represents the Conservative vision of Canada: no union protections for workers, business before people, private schools, private health care, Jude-Christian dominance... Alberta is the dry run for Harper’s Canada.
