“For the first time in Canadian history”, lawyer Shawn Buckley explains, “Bill C-6 not only abolishes the law of trespass, but also allows warrants to be issued to search private homes without evidence of criminal wrongdoing*… in violation of Section 8 of the Charter.”
2. Under Bill C-6 (various sections) , “guilt (of anybody considered to violate this act, if the Minister thinks this is so) is determined by the Minister”, not by the courts! (As was the case for the past thousand years since England’s Magna Carta). Since when has any minister greater powers than the courts of the country? Since when is any government official, elected or otherwise, above the law?
3. Bill C-6 , in its preamble on page 1 and again in Section 2 (e) and (f), defines our government as including “a government of a foreign state or of a subdivision of a foreign state”, and “an international organization of states”. Canadians cannot question (or vote out) foreign governments. Canada has the right to enter into treaties – if our elected representatives agree to it, and we have the right to change or rescind such treaties by turfing out our government in the next election – but we did not give our government the right to change the very definition of what we own.
4. In Bill C-6, under Section 36 (2) (a) “any regulation made under this Act may be incorporated by [not by us the voters, but by]… a person or body (who the heck is this?) other than the Minister [i.e. a Canadian, elected MP], including by an organization established for the purpose of writing standards [ Codex? What organizations? Where?] … an industrial or trade organization [on whose boards we don’t sit, whose products we may not want, e.g. pesticide companies etc], or a government” [which one or ones?]. Forget the explanation/doublespeak – REMOVE this section immediately.
Whatever else Bill C-6 states and no matter how benevolent its intended protections – nothing warrants the removal of basic rights, the subversion of the Constitution, the usurpation of our courts, and the dis-empowering of Canadian citizens. C-6 CANNOT be amended – it must be withdrawn totally. Any other bill, containing those provisions, already passed or currently proposed, must also be withdrawn.
