Few people know that Canada's country statute, in terms of Right, is debatable, and especially that QUEBEC, AND THE OTHER PROVINCES ARE COMPLETELY SOVEREIGN SINCE the PROMULGATION OF the STATUTE OF WESTMINSTER on December 11, 1931.
Indeed, under the terms of article 7, paragraph 2 of this Statute, the provinces were made “SOVEREIGN, FREE AND INDEPENDENT”.
And they still are.
Explanation: Since the condition of sovereignty must be exerted by the provinces before they can federate, it was necessary that the British government gives up its authority on them.
That was done by the promulgation of the Statute of Westminster in 1931, which made the provinces “SOVEREIGN” so that they can consume the federal union which they wished to create, but that they had not been authorized to make in 1867.
Canada did not become a federal union under the terms of the Act of British North America in 1867, but rather a plain colony.
The privilege to federate, consequently, was always a possible privilege.
The Parliament of Canada did not become the government of Canada, and even less one federal government in 1867.
It simply became the central (geographically) legislature of a united colony, a legislative body, whose only capacity is to help and advise the general governor as an agent of the imperial Parliament (in London).
Since December 11, 1931, the provinces of Canada did not act according to their statute, they did not sign an agreement, they did not adopt a Constitution, and the population of Canada did not ratify a Constitution.
That fault from the provinces explain all the anomalies are still found in today's situation. Not only this abnormal condition exists since 1931, but it came to be without any consultation made into the canadian population.
SO THE QUESTION IS: FROM WHERE DOES THE FEDERAL PARLIAMENT TAKES ITS POWER TO GOVERN THIS "COUNTRY"?
The imperial Parliament cannot create a federal union. That can be made only by the people of Canada, and they never did it to this day.
I thus affirm, with a majority of Canadians and until I ratify a canadian Constitution, that there is no constitution, and I launch a winning challenge to any contradiction of this assertion.
