To understand how freedom is being debased and destroyed in Canada one has to go back a number of years to the beginning.
The loss of personal freedoms in Canada had its roots in a decision by an appointed Supreme Court judge. His name was Ivan C. Rand. This judge was the instigator of compulsory union dues by a decision he made in 1946, this was known as “The Rand Decision.” A person did not have to “belong” to the union but must pay union dues for collective bargaining.
Now collective bargaining has evolved into collective coercion, and compulsory union dues are being used by the trade unions for all kinds of causes and policies unrelated to the workplace. Some of these issues are as follows: abortion clinics, so-called same-sex marriage, socialism, the abortionist, Morgentaler, National Action Committee on the Status of Women and numerous other organizations unrelated to collective bargaining. Trade union leaders keep insisting that these non-workplace issues are decided “democratically” at conventions. Which begs the question: How can one have COMPULSORY democracy: when the so-called Charter of Rights and Freedoms lists, “freedom of association” as a “fundamental freedom?”
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms
This Charter was imposed by the political elites of the day. The ordinary people who are ruled by it did not get to vote on whether they wanted this Charter of Pierre Trudeau’s.
“…the Charter was a ruse. Trudeau wanted to consolidate power in the Supreme Court of Canada and weaken Parliament.” 
And weak parliaments have now succumbed to rule by appointed the judges. Here are some examples.
The judges say the Charter is a “living tree” and the people have to live with the rotten fruit it produces.
Then from the “living tree” come the great new “rights” found in the charter.
An abortionist who consistently broke the law was finally given clearance to ply his abominable trade of killing the child in the womb, after a majority of judges struck down the abortion law. Now the country has no law on abortion and the killing of the innocents is declared a “choice.”
Another judge declares that anyone arriving on the shores of the country be they criminals, terrorists, drug dealers or whatever have “rights” under the charter.
Another judge states that criminals are “morally worthy” to vote.
Another “learned” judge has a hallucination and “reads in” words not written in the Charter.
A judicial threesome then “discovers” a “right” in the Charter that men can “marry” men and that women can “marry” women. The politicians then tell the people that under the charter “same-sex marriage” is a “right.” Of course this nonsense was never in the Charter, but what’s a big lie amongst the elites.
Another judge states that orgies are okay as long as no “harm” is done. And the country is now open for orgies everywhere. These are just some examples of the abominations imposed by judges and accepted by politicians as “normal” for the country.
Human Rights Commissions (HRC)
These HRCs have no place in a free society. They have become another form of insidious dictatorship where free speech can be called a “hate crime.”
The Canadian Jewish News of 29 October, 2009 said this:
“The federal anti-hate law that ‘official Jews’ lobbied for and got passed has, 32 years later, backfired, sowing the seeds for political correctness, media chill and censorship…” 
And the Canadian “conservative” government has been an intervenor against free speech.
“The Attorney General of Canada, the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre and B'nai Brith Canada will be
intervening in the Lemire case in support of Section 13, arguing that it is a reasonable restriction on freedom of speech” (Canadian Constitution Foundation Letter of April 28, 2008.)
Freedom of expression is a right guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; yet, the Attorney General of Canada along with others is an intervenor in the Lemire case. Free speech is either FREE or it isn’t. We already have laws on the books if people defame or libel other people, why do we need these HRCs?
We may not like what people say but in the words of Voltaire, “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” In Canada today, we are seeing the death of free speech. People are being harassed, and dragged before these undemocratic, appointed HRCs. Some of those who have been persecuted are: Mark and Connie Fournier of the Free Dominion website, Chris Kempling, Scott Brockie, Knights of Columbus, Stephen Boissoin, Bishop Henry, Fr. De Valk, editor of Catholic Insight magazine, the Christian Heritage Party and MacLean’s magazine among others. Nobody is safe from these appointed interrogators of totalitarian bent. Anything you say may be taken down and used against you and reported to unelected, appointed, Human Rights Commissars (HRCs). Those dragged before these Stalinist tribunals have to pay for their own lawyers and their own defence. Meanwhile, their accusers are given a free ride, and the politicians sit back and allow this perversion of democracy.
Free speech on Canadian campuses is constantly under attack; that is, if pro-life people dare to attempt to present the evidence of abortion. Anyone daring to show pictures of the killing of the innocent child in the womb, or to even talk about it, is often subject to having their presentation disrupted, destroyed, broken up, or shouted down by the little jackbooted brown shirts who masquerade under the banner of “choice.” These are so-called students who are in favor of “freedom of choice,” but when it comes to showing the victims of choice, that choice is denied.
See these two videos:
Universities are supposed to be places of higher learning where free discussion and opinion are supposed to exist. But, they do not exist in most of the universities in Canada, if anyone dares to show or speak the truth about abortion. This state of affairs has been going on for years.
Politicians brought HRCs into being and gave them legitimacy. Now the politicians sit back and allow these Human Rights Commissars which they created, to run roughshod over us all. Which makes one wonder just who is really running the country? And why do we bother having elections? Oh, I forgot, we live in a “democracy,” Yeah, sure!
In summing up, one has to say, the people of Canada are being forced to ride along with this motley gang of unelected appointed judges and human rights commissions; trade unions with compulsory membership and jackbooted thugs on Canadian university campuses, and cowardly politicians who will not defend freedom. There is no freedom if you are not politically correct. The so-called Charter of Rights is a farce. This farcical Charter has become a judicial monster that devours freedom, morality and decency and vomits compulsion, filth and depravity. We now live in a pretend democracy, and we are seeing the continual debasement and destruction of freedom in Canada.
