The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a bill of rights.
The Charter is intended to
protect certain political and civil rights of people in Canada
the policies and actions of all levels of government.
It is also supposed to unify Canadians around a set of principles that embody those rights.
The Charter was preceded by the Canadian Bill of Rights, which was introduced by the government of John
Diefenbaker in 1960.
However, the Bill of Rights was only a federal statute, rather than a constitutional document.
Therefore, it was limited in scope and was easily amendable. This motivated some within government to
improve rights protections in Canada.
The movement for human rights and freedoms that emerged after World War II also wanted to entrench the
principles enunciated in the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Hence, the government of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau enacted the Charter in 1982.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The pursuit of human rights was a central reason for creating the UN. World War II atrocities and genocide led
to a ready consensus that the new organization must work to prevent any similar tragedies in the future. An
early objective was creating a legal framework for considering and acting on complaints about human rights
violations. The UN Charter obliges all member nations to promote "universal respect for, and observance of,
human rights" and to take "joint and separate action" to that end. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights,
though not legally binding,
was adopted by the General Assembly in 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all. The Assembly
regularly takes up human rights issues.
A large share of UN expenditures addresses the core UN mission of peace and security. The peacekeeping
budget for the 2005–2006 fiscal year was approximately US$5 billion, €2.5 billion (compared to approximately
US$1.5 billion, €995 million for the UN core budget over the same period), with some 70,000 troops deployed
in 17 missions around the world. UN peace operations are funded by assessments, using a formula derived
from the regular funding scale, but including a weighted surcharge for the five permanent Security Council
members, who must approve all peacekeeping operations. This surcharge serves to offset discounted
peacekeeping assessment rates for less developed countries. As of 1 January 2011, the top 10 providers of
assessed financial contributions to United Nations peacekeeping operations were: the United States, Japan, the
United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, China, Canada, Spain and the Republic of Korea.
Special UN programmes not included in the regular budget (such as UNICEF, the WFP and UNDP) are
financed by voluntary contributions from other member governments. Most of this is financial contributions,
but some is in the form of agricultural commodities donated for afflicted populations. Since their funding is
voluntary, many of these agencies suffer severe shortages during economic recessions.
In July 2009, the World Food Programme reported that it has been forced to cut services because of insufficient
It has received barely a quarter of the total it needed for the 09/10 financial year.
Many of the basic ideas that animated the movement developed in the aftermath of the Second World War and
the atrocities of the Holocaust, culminating in the adoption of the
Universal Declaration of Human
in Paris by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.
The ancient world did not possess the concept of universal human rights. Ancient societies had "elaborate
systems of duties... conceptions of justice, political legitimacy, and human flourishing that sought to realize
human dignity, flourishing, or well-being entirely independent of human rights". The modern concept of
human rights developed during the early Modern period, alongside the European secularization of Judeo-
Christian ethics. The true forerunner of human rights discourse was the concept of natural rights which
appeared as part of the medieval Natural law tradition, became prominent during the Enlightenment with such
philosophers as John Locke, Francis Hutcheson, and Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, and featured prominently in the
political discourse of the American Revolution and the French Revolution.
Multinational companies play an increasingly large role in the world, and have been responsible for numerous
human rights abuses. Although the legal and moral environment surrounding the actions of governments is
reasonably well developed, that surrounding multinational companies is both controversial and ill-
defined. Multinational companies' primary responsibility is to their shareholders, not to those
affected by their actions. Such companies may be larger than the economies of some of the states within which
they operate, and can wield significant economic and political power. No international treaties exist to
specifically cover the behavior of companies with regard to human rights, and national legislation is very
variable. Jean Ziegler, Special Rapporteur of the UN Commission on Human Rights on the right to food stated
in a report in 2003:
In August 2003 the Human Rights Commission's Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human
Rights produced draft Norms on the responsibilities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises
with regard to human rights. These were considered by the Human Rights Commission in 2004,
but have no binding status on corporations and are not monitored.
Rule of Law
The Rule of law in its most basic form is no one is above the law.
Perhaps the most important application of the rule of law is the principle that governmental authority is
legitimately exercised only in accordance with,
publicly disclosed laws,
adopted and enforced in accordance with established procedural steps that are referred to as due process.
The rule of law is hostile to dictatorship and to anarchy.
According to modern Anglo-American thinking, hallmarks of adherence to the rule of law commonly include
a clear separation of powers,
the principle of legitimate expectation and equality of all before the law.
The concept is not without controversy, and it has been said that
"the phrase the rule of law has become meaningless thanks to ideological abuse and general over- use"
General Over-use Proclamations Only Elusivity
publicly disclosed laws

the supreme law of Canada,
and any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution
to the extent of the inconsistency,
of no force or effect.
