A group of Canadians currently identifying themselves as the “Group of 12″ claims that they are contemplating class action litigation against the Security Perimter Agreement in Quebec Civil Courts. Could the legality of the Agreement be ultimately decided in the Supreme Court of Canada [photo above], in our nation’s capital?
The “Group of 12″ is made up of lawyers, intellectuals and self-descriped activists, and is without a formal leader. Instead this group is operating in what could be described as a cooperative fashion.
The grounds for their prospective “class action” legal claim against the Harper government, and what they also describe as their “accomplices” in Parliament, is that the Security Perimeter (i) violates the Constitution Act, 1867; (ii) the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (iii) constitutes treason, and a breach of the fiduciary obligation of the Harper government to defend the best interests of Canadians, (iv) and parliamentary law that is also related to Canadian constitutional customs and conventions.
The Constitution Act, 1867 established the Confederation of Canada, and de facto, Canada’s sovereignty from the United States, which was disregarded by Harper’s treaty with Obama that will result in no effective border between Canada and the United States.
Along with ‘no border’, the Agreement effectively cancels out ‘parliamentary supremacy’ with a return to colonial status for Canada under U.S. laws and security arrangements.
According to the “Group of 12″, the Agreement also constitutes a breach of ’freedom of conscience’ and legal rights of Canadians guaranteed by the Charter to the extent to which the Agreement will now require Canadians to be subjected to the ”Big Br0ther” jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The “Group of 12″ also argues that the Harper government also had a legal obligation for to subject the full wording of the Agreement to parliamentary hearings and full public scrutiny under Canada’s customs and conventions; and that the Harper government is also in breach of his Oath to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada to defend the sovereignty of Canada, and inherent constitutional obligations.
The “Group of 12″ says that Canadians should by no means rely on them as “their saviour” – all Canadians must participate in the saving of our country. The “Group of 12″ encourages other Canadians to contemplate their own legal rights and access to courts and says that a nation is only as strong as the willingness to the people themselves to defend their own community from alien control or foreign conquest.
