E-petition
Initiated by Shawn Bevins from Drummondville, Quebec

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Under section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms there is no codified right for the protection of property rights.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to amend Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to include property rights. We propose that Section 7 be amended to read: Everyone has the right to life, liberty, security of the person and enjoyment of property and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
