The Notwithstanding clause...

Obviously, Paul Martin was desperate. So, all of a sudden he brings up a constitutional change. I think we can all agree that this sort of proposal deserves more than two weeks of debate.

Unfortunately, his proposal does nothing to help the most aggrieved minority in this country -- English-speaking Quebecers. Their language rights were trampled on (and still are) and he won't even speak up for them.

Removing the notwithstanding clause frightens me and just might show the Liberal's true agenda, to slowly turn Canada into a dictatorship. Paul Martin as Prime Minister wants the Power to Appoint a Supreme Authority in the land - free of parliamentary approval - that cannot be overruled by parliament.
