Pimm clarifies his position on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

MLA Pat Pimm has offered a clarification on the recent news story that he was calling for the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to be scrapped.

In an interview that was recorded Saturday for the upcoming episode of Moose FM’s Issues and Answers radio show, Pimm contends that during his speech on the legislature on October 29th about Bill 14, the following statement was misinterpreted by the media:

"I just don’t think it’s a good document whatsoever myself, For 99 per cent of the people out there, that document doesn’t even need to exist, first off. It’s only about one per cent or two per cent of the people that it’s even developed for, and it’s to keep the lawyers and the judges and everybody working to support the system…. Charter of Rights, it’s a wonderful document… but who needs it? The people that break the law."

It was reported by a number of media outlets, including Energeticcity.ca and the Victoria Times Colonist, that Pimm was calling for the Charter to be scrapped, based on what he said during the October 29th speech.

Pimm claified that statement by saying he is instead looking for a new "Bill of Responsibilities" to be implemented along-side the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
