Strengthening the Bill of Rights Act

Blogger No Right Turn has two useful articles about strengthening the Bill of Rights Act.

The first comments on Green MP Keith Locke's private member's bill that aims to entrench the Bill of Rights and force Parliament to justify deliberate breaches of the Act. The second talks about the Canadian option where the government can pass laws breaching the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but then has to re-pass them every five years.
