The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a worthless piece of crap.

And here’s the insidious problem that their misunderstanding has saddled Canada with. Since the politicians who drafted the Charter saw Lochner in a negative light, they wanted to ensure that the Charter could not produce a similar case in Canada. They assumed–incorrectly–that property rights were the problem. As a result, they intentionally excluded property rights from the Charter… in part because of their misunderstanding of Lochner.
