The Charter Of Rights Freedoms - 25 years later

Pierre Trudeau and Queen Elizabeth signed a document that
a) combined Catholic personalism and Protestant constitutional theology to establish sovereignty of the individual

b) used the chartering power of the crown to create a commonwealth which limits the rights of the House of Commons to alter the law of the land when it comes to individual rights and freedoms.

c) is both profound and will prove enduring.
