It is becoming obvious to most Canadians that the Conservative party is not a fan of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The charter compels the Supreme Court of Canada to evaluate government policy and laws in context of the Charter to determine their compliance and thus their legality. This requirement of the Charter also seems to have put the Conservatives at odds with the Supreme Court.
Many recent stories in the media document this discord.
But recently, Larry Miller, (dubbed the “Keeper of the Flame” by his Conservative caucus colleagues as the voice of principle and straight talking) expressed the Conservative view quite candidly in an article in the National Post, written by John Ivison.
