Quote of the day
Were the governors afraid to challenge the chair? Why were the governors afraid? Canada is a country founded on rule of law. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms begins by stressing this exact point. The CFC is an officially incorporated organization–legally recognized as such by the Canada Corporations Act– with a constitution that must be complied with in every legal sense. Every official decision of the CFC must be in some way validated by the consititution or permitted by the constitution.
Those in the CFC leadership, and no doubt some others who have worked behind the scenes, have suppressed the right and obligation of the governors to question the legality and constitutionality of their actions in this process–either thru intimidation or unbecoming means– and they have done their fellow citizens a grave injustice. But mostly, they have behaved in an un-Canadian fashion.
