Jordan Peterson, Brian Peckford and the Charter

Jordan Peterson interviews Brian Peckford, former Premier of Newfoundland (1979 – 1989), who helped draft Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1981-82). He is suing the Federal Government under Justin Trudeau for violating this charter, in particular the following provisions:

  • 6 (1) Every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in and leave Canada.
  • Marginal note:Rights to move and gain livelihood(2) Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right
    • (a) to move to and take up residence in any province; and
    • (b) to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.”
