The judicial branch in Canada is a key element to the division of power. The judiciary branch is an uninfluenced and independent from the legislative and executive branch, the judges are appointed by the Prime Minister and their role is to interpret and apply the laws of Canada as written in the Canadian Constitution. There are two essential principals in modern democracy; the rule of law (La primauté du droit) and the separation of powers (Lampron p. 218). The rule of law is the idea that no one is above the law. This theory allows for a healthy democracy as authority must practice is powers legitimately and in accordance with written and publically adapted laws.
He challenged the law that took away his right to vote while in prison, he argued that s.51(e) of The Canadian Elections Act violated his Charter Rights by excluding every person who is imprisoned in a correctional facility for the commission of any offence. Sauvé claimed that it contradicted s.3 of The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms - Every citizen of Canada has the right to vote in an election of the House of Commons or of a legislative assembly.

Jean Chrétien: Passionate Plea For Unity Chrétien’s speech is mainly targeted towards Quebecers wishing to separate from our country. This speech took place prior to the referendum regarding the issue of whether or not Quebec should proclaim its individual sovereignty. Chrétien also recognizes Quebec as a “distinct society” whilst specifying Quebec’s unique language and culture which makes it an admirable community. To bring this all together, Chrétien stresses the beauty in Canadian diversity, generosity, tolerance and respect which is idolized by other foreigners. I appreciated how Chrétien identified and acknowledged Quebecers cries for change and even says that he knows the separatist party will guarantee exactly that.
The sentence I would give Manny is life time in prison. Why I would give him life time compared to his actual sentence is because no man gets of easy. For example when he attacked a family in the neighborhood what did that family do to him. Manny say “If someone hits you, you gotta defend your self….” This family didn’t attack him or hurt him so why did he hurt them.
A degree of unity is necessary to create a sense of national pride and to hold a country together (James, 2003, 140). In Emile Durkheim’s sociological research, he concluded that people within a society trust each other because they have the “underlying set of common beliefs and values” of the larger society (Robson, 2013, 19-20). Durkheim believed that these beliefs and values, which were taught in schools, were necessary to prevent societies from falling apart (Robson, 2013, 19-20). This theory views a homogenous version of Canada as necessary to retain order (Harper, 197, 197). In order for Canada to be perfectly homogenous individuals would need to conform to the broader culture and neglect any traits of their heritage culture that are too different.
Public life: There are two main clauses in the First Amendment-the ‘Establishment clause’ according to which no Government employee or organization can discriminate on religious grounds and the ‘Free Exercise clause’ which ensures religious freedom for citizen and religious groups or clubs. In public life, freedom to express religious views extends to traditions such as marriage, baptism, etc, also dress code followed by a particular religion, refusal to take part in military service, to name a few. Sometimes the Government offers support to religious groups but since it is not unconstitutional, it is acceptable. Some examples are financial aid to religiously affiliated schools, colleges, hospital, charitable organizations, etc; employment

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is located in the first part of the Canadian Constitution and came into effect on April 17, 1982. The Charter is a document that outlines a set of constitutional principles that assist in creating a free and democratic country and is the most important of the laws in Canada.

Two of those columns have the exact same width and the same colour that are red. The other column is white and wider because it has the maple leaf on the center of the flag. The way I view the Canadian flag is that is simple and easy to remember. The colours capture the attention of the citizen as well as people from other countries.
