Is there a similar document for the nation in which your issue occurs?
Yes there is a similar document but its definitely not the same. They only have the basic fundamental freedoms and some rights described below. The only problem is that Russia doesn’t follow these rights and freedoms like Canada does. They definitely need better rights and freedoms. When people are denied the basic rights to live, even though they say that all citizens have the right to the basic needs of life they don’t. Children/Orphans in Russia are restrained in cloth sacks, tethered by a limb to furniture, denied stimulation, and sometimes left to lie half-naked in their own filth. Bedridden children aged five to seventeen are confined to understaffed lying-down rooms as in the baby houses, and in some cases are neglected to the point of death.
If so, what rights and freedoms are guaranteed in the document?
There are many different rights and freedoms but Russia doesn’t always follow them. In Russia people have the Freedom of religion, the right to be free of torture or unfair punishment, Freedom of assembly, Press freedom, Human rights, Freedom of political expression, Freedom of literary and scientific expression, Right to vote, Economic rights, Freedoms of assembly and association, Freedom of religion, Freedom of movement
I one case an employer was beaten in Sochi after he was allegedly stealing wire from the buildings of the 2014 winter olympics. He was beaten on site after he showed up to grab his pay check. He was beaten and sexually assaulted with a crowbar.
If not, why do you think this is the case? Have there been any attempts to remedy this?
How might the issue be different if the Canadian Charter were applied?
I think they would have a better country because right now they don’t value the Rights and Freedoms because they really don’t have any. I think that if we put our charter they would value it and stick up to themselves. But even if we did put the charter in Russia the government would have to be switched because you can make rules but if nobody follows them what is the point?
Be specific! Which sections would be relevant?
I think the legal rights would be the biggest change because in Russia everyone is assumed guilty and they don't have courts they have a dictatorship sentencing. If we would put our legal rights into Russia everyone would be innocent until proven guilty and everyone would have the right to an equal, fair and quick trial.
