December 7, 2015 - Reasonable Limits

The Canadian Charter of [Limited] Rights and Freedoms and limits. The forgot to include the bracketed bit.

This document is obligatory on all branches of Federal and provincial government (but not on “Crown Corporations”). It details what they recognize as the rights and freedoms that people and persons, yes two distinct and different entities, have. Here’s what it says:

"The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.” (emphasis mine)

Notice there are "reasonable limits" to the “Rights and Freedoms” that those who are members of their "democratic society” can enjoy.

Who defines what is “reasonable?” Who determines if you are a part of this "democratic society” and if you are, by what means? Either:

  • You consented to be
  • You are assumed to be, or
  • You were forced to be...

The word “consent” is not to be found in the Charter. We are then left with only “assumed” and “forced.” Assumption, if that is the case, can be corrected by a sworn statement from us expressing consent or dissent to being considered a member of their "democratic society."

Think about it, and make it a conscious decision and deliberate act. Don’t leave it to assumption. Declare that you’re a part of it or declare that you’re not a part of it. Just make it clear.

Remember this, membership in any organization or corporation always carries with it responsibilities, some benefit, and a loss of freedom

Are the benefits of membership really worth the loss? 

That question needs to be answered before you consent. If you haven’t consented then you are there by assumption.

Leave nothing to assumption.
