dc.description.abstract "Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, along with the Supreme Court, is the focal point for an evocation of civil religion ... The manner in which important constitencies speak of the Charter ... reveals an attempt ... to create a civil religion based upon the language of rights found in the Charter that postulates Canada participates in the unfolding of a progressive history toward a more democratic and egalitarian future in which individuals are thought to be unencumberedby history, nature, religion, tradition, or community." en_US
