How has the Charter fundamentally changed Canadian politics? Discussion with Chief Justice (Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench) Glenn Joyal about Canada’s founding ideological mélange and strands of liberal neutrality, communitarianism, and Westminster supremacy, the shift in political culture effectuated by the Charter, the notwithstanding clause, and how courts and legislatures can collaborate in articulating rights. CJ Joyal also responds to Leonid Sirota’s critique of his speech.
