Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms & Charter for Children Books

Brian Peckford is a former premier of Newfoundland and the last surviving architect of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. "Thank you Mr. Peckford for your continued involvement in the Canadian political scene and for especially mounting this constitutional challenge at this precarious time."

Empowering Speeches with Brian Peckford:

I listened to this speech many times before bed this past fall as I deeply struggled with having to get the second vax.


Dustin Milligan is a native of the charming village of Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island. He currently practices law in Toronto, Ontario. The idea for The Charter for Children first emerged when Dustin was a student at the Faculty of Law at McGill University. He was concerned about the accessibility of information pertaining to our fundamental rights and freedoms. Over the course of six years he collaborated with a host of legal professionals from all different backgrounds in order to adapt the heavy language and lessons of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms into a child-friendly format.

It is an amazing series and there are lesson plans for teachers to reference as well. Please visit their website.
