Rights and wrongs in Canadian Justice

You have been appointed the Minster of Justice by the Prime Minister of Canada. Congratulations. You receive
your mandate letter from the Prime Minister, and in the letter it tasks you with proposing a replacement to the
Charter of Rights and Freedoms that does a better job protecting Canadian citizens’ rights and freedoms. The
Prime Minister is concerned that rights and freedoms are too easily limited and constrained under the current
Charter. They are particularly concerned about the inability of the Charter to protect BIPOC (black, indigenous,
and persons of colour) Canadians from experiencing discrimination. The Prime Minister encourages you to
develop a proposed new charter that aligns more closely with the universal declaration of human rights and the
UN declaration of indigenous rights. Please provide a detailed report that:
Identifies and explains the limitations of the Charter in protecting rights and freedoms.
Provides a detailed overview of the proposed new Charter that are more closely aligned with the universal
declaration of human rights and the UN declaration of indigenous rights.
Clearly articulates why you feel that the proposed new Charter will do a better job protecting Canadians’ rights
and freedoms (especially with respect to discrimination against BIPOC Canadians) compared to the current
Charter.
Outlines the legal process that must occur in order for the new Charter to be passed into law so that it can
replace the current Charter within our constitution.
