Description

First published in 1989, this volume reflects on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms of the 1982 Canadian Constitution, considering its implications for the future development of the nation.

The book offers a concise analysis of what the Charter says and what the courts had, to the time of publication, taken it to mean. Beginning with a discussion of the Charter's origins, Greene then dissects the various clauses of the document before turning to Charter decisions already rendered by the Supreme Court.

The Charter of Rights is a thoughtful primer of the Charter and its impact on the collective life of Canadians.
