Charter Challenge: unite the fight
With Julian Falconer, seasoned Constitutional lawyer with a positive record
Nothing to date has stopped the construction of Industrial Wind Turbines in our province even though many people have been fighting tirelessly for years.There is now a strong move to come together and UNITE THE FIGHT.The current Charter Challenge, with prominent human rights and constitutional lawyer Julian Falconer at the helm, is the rallying action. Julian has a winning record. If the funding is there, he will take this fight right to the Supreme Court of Canada if necessary.If this Charter Challenge is successful it will set a precedent and will assist ALL appeals and legal challenges which follow. Others can then raise the same issues and seek the same relief. This action has the potential to shift the burden of proof from the need to prove serious harm to human health to the need to prove the possibility of harm, a much lower threshold.Success with this Charter Challenge is a win for everyone. UNITE THE FIGHT.
