Never happened.
The constitution simply doesn't recognize the right to abortion, look closely, it isn't in there.

That's why the lefties are scared of people actually reading.
The original Constitution doesn't include much of anything.

It was written entirely by old white men. who were slave owners.

Conservatives want to live in the past of white male superiority, which people like Jordan Peterson advocate.

So they followed democratic process, in which president appoints the judge and then Senate decides whether he should be confirmed or not? How else does one appoint judges to the Supreme Court?

I will fix MrMatt post because you choose to misinterpret it:
' The Constitution (as of today) doesn't recognize the right to abortion' - same as in every other country in the world.
Why is there such an outrage over basic confirmation that US Constitution, same as Canadian, doesn't have rights to abortion in it?

It also does not recognize the right to marry whom you like, be it of a different race or same sex.
That's why laws were passed recognizing those rights.

The Constitution is to protect the people from government overreach. You can speak freely, worship who you want, own a gun, etc. and the government can't stop you.

And that is exactly why the left hates the Constitution...they don't want people to think freely, speak freely, or protect themselves. They want every single part of their life controlled by the government. The only people that think like that are either cowards scared of responsibility or communists. No other groups of people are afraid of basic individual rights.

You're right, that's in the UNDHR.

But our consititution has an equal treatment clause.

It's interesting because we often (and rightly) violate it.

For example the Canadian constitutional argument for gay or interracial marriage would be the same argument to marry children.

Everyone has the right to equality before the law and to equal protection of the law without discrimination because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age or sex.

I imagine in many states there are laws that but for those SCOTUS rulings would prohibit these things.

The right seems awfully fond of controlling the moral behaviours of others.

That's precisely why the constitution is in place - so that lawmakers (no matter from which side of political spectrum) can't take your basic rights away.
Which is precisely why constitution having notwithstanding clause is worth as much as toilet paper - and Canada is only first-world country with notwithstanding clause on human rights - so lawmakers actually can and do prohibit and violate basic rights

The notwithstanding clause is the least problematic clause.
They explicitly allow discrimination, go back and read it.

I know discrimination is legal in Canada.

The problem is that with notwithstanding clause every human rights abuse is legal in Canada - I would call that quite problematic
The point is they don't even need to use the notwithstanding clause.

Plus our judges can't read. I think they must be stoned because they read things that simply aren't in our constitution.

It is July in Ontario, and the temperature is around 30 degrees Celsius.

In the video the gas fireplace is running and Pierre is wearing a t-shirt beneath a flannel shirt, while he fondles his wood.

Pierre isn't from this planet.

You have a weird fetish of focusing on people's clothes. That's fine, can you do it in private though rather on public forum?

In the meantime, Canada is finally #1 at something in the world:

MONTREAL -
Canadian airlines and airports claimed top spots in flight delays over the July long weekend, notching more than nearly any other around the world.


Air Canada ranked No. 1 in delays on Saturday and Sunday as two-thirds of its flights -- 717 trips in total -- landed late, according to tracking service FlightAware. At 67 per cent on Sunday, it was more than 14 percentage points above the three carriers tied for second place, two of which are Air Canada-affiliated.

Service Canada centers improvement are coming - with added camping amenities

More FUD………watch the news.

The long weekend in the US includes travel today…Monday,July 4th.

Bloomberg reported that half of Americans polled didn’t know why July 4th was a civic holiday.

Maybe you are one of them ?

Do not confuse Trudeau/Liberal lovers with those who make a decision to vote for, or support, the Party that they view as the lesser of two evils.

I am not a huge Trudeau Liberal supporter.

But given a choice between an incredibly divided and dis functional CPC ( or even worse a CPC Party led by PP) I would hold my nose and vote Liberal in a heartbeat.

CPC MP Michelle Rempel Garner called it like it is. And it will probably get worse before it gets better.

Or read some of long time Conservative insider and former Senator Marjory LeBreton's comments about the current state of the CPC.

It is why so much talent left the party after Harper was defeated. And more again after Scheer was elected Leader.

They saw the writing on the wall. That writing is still there. Not in huge black letters... now in flashing red lights.

That is the CPC reality today.
