It's no secret to many that the Harper Conservatives actively dislike the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. As writer EvilScientist muses, there are significant signs that Harper and crew are planning an all out assault on not just the Charter, but on the very principle of Presumed Innocence.

Interestingly, Dion is promising to undo some of the damage that the Conservatives have started to inflict.
