There have been an increasing number of people messaging me with questions about situations in which they are needing to know their rights – what the law actually says – and what they can do to protect their constitutional rights and freedoms. I’m not a lawyer and don’t provide any legal advice, but only provide information from qualified legal experts. When it comes to the Canadian Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms, that source is the Canadian Centre for Constitutional Freedoms.

I have been relying entirely on the following excellent resource in answering people messaging me, since it contains the most relevant information and answers to the most common legal issues and situations facing Islanders and Canadians.
