In this episode of the Empower Hour, David Lindsay, co-founder of Common Law Education and Rights (CLEAR), joins Tanya to discuss Canadian’s guaranteed rights and how to assert them confidently and knowledgeably when approached by law enforcement or other officials. They also discuss the origins and Constitutional rights of people to practice peaceful civil disobedience. Action4Canada has created this resource to help Canadians assert their rights.

It is critical that this engagement be consistent and ongoing in order to confront and curtail government overreach and any agenda to interfere with our democracy and/or violate our God-given unalienable rights and freedoms. The freedom to peacefully protest, freedom of speech, thought and belief, privacy, and the right to work are all protected rights and freedoms according to the Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Police, elected officials, educators, government employees, and lay people do not have the right to hinder or prohibit citizens: from expressing their opinion or concerns; engaging the public; or participating in all levels of civic engagement.
