This charter of rights and freedoms is for the world. This is the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was created by Daniel, Omar, Justin, Yashvin and me. We kept the same organization as the Canadian Charter because it is very easy to find what you are looking for as well as it is listed in different parts and not all in one. We have put the very basics in and we did some changes. As you probably noticed we put in basic rights. These outline the basic rights of people and what they can have. We also changed democratic rights to government rights, as we didn't want to assimilate anybody. We recognized that not every country has a democratic government. Some may have a dictatorship, some may not even have a government at all. Education rights was a big one for us as we are students and we had a hard time filling this one out. We didn't want to assimilate anybody nor did we want to have people begging for the government to help. We took the basics of the Canadian Charter and put them in as a starting point and then it evolved into this. I really do like this Charter of Rights and Freedoms as it portrays the necessities and basic needs of the human race.
