LETTER: Charging charities violates Charter

Published on September 12, 2017

I am happy to read the guest opinion of Joseph MacDonald in The Guardian. I was hoping someone would respond, so I feel comfortable responding.  

Yes, there are lots of places, possibly city police too, that do games of chance similar to many, many organizations and charities. City police always have their own agenda, I highly agree with that.
Any prosecutor would have fun making those charges stick. I do believe city police have some lawsuits ahead for invasion of Charter Rights.
I am saying the same things, you don't have to support the Angels, but we all have the same human rights. We do need, as Canadians, to keep our rights intact.
Imagine, sitting at a charity, meeting and playing bingo for chance, and here comes police storming in your place, and charge you. Maybe your opinion would change somewhat.
