e-2012 (United Nations)

Initiated by George Browne from Montreal River Harbour, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Canada Constitution Act 1867 to 1982 proclaims the right of Canadian Citizens to benefit from, and the duty of the Government of Canada to provide, “Peace, Order and Good Government” and makes no provision for abdication of that duty to supra-national bodies;
  • The UN has consistently failed in its prime mandate to achieve world peace, despite much time and many resources made available to meet those responsabilities, but has elected Syria's notorious Assad regime to chair the UN disarmament forum;
  • The UN has been shown to be unsuccessful, in the 70th year of its Universal Declaration of Human Rights, of respecting its own protocols by electing some of the worst human rights abusers to the Human Rights Council;
  • Canadians have objected to numerous UN objectives which are inconsistent with our rights and freedoms;
  • Canadian Citizens already benefit from Democratic representation; and
  • The Canada Constitution Act 1982 states “The Constitution of Canada is the supreme law of Canada, and any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution is, to the extent of the inconsistency, of no force or effect.”
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to re-evaluate for consistency with Canadian Rights and Values any past UN agreements, pacts, initiatives and endorsements it may have adopted which have ceded Canadian sovereignty and undertake to refrain from adopting any further, such as the UN Parliamentary Assembly, without a constitutional amendment and a national referendum on the issue.
