  Implied Bill of Rights
Implied Bill of Rights is a judicial theory in Canadian jurisprudence that recognizes that certain basic principles are underlying the Constitution of Canada.
The Supreme Court revisited the implied bill of rights theory in Reference re Remuneration of Judges of the Provincial Court of Prince Edward Island [1997] 3 S.C.R. Provincial Judges Reference[?]).
As outlined by the majority the proper function of the implied bill of rights after the adoption of the Charter is to 'fill in the gaps' in the express terms of the constitutional texts.

 Draft Title Conditions (Scotland) Bill: page 5
Implied rights to enforce in common schemes are widespread.
The Commission have proposed that, in the case of implied rights in a common scheme, the enforcement of burdens should be left to the closest neighbours.
The Bill proposes, however, that rights to enforce amenity burdens should be abolished except for the close neighbours (within 4 metres), all of whom would have to consent to any discharge or variation of the burdens.

  Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a constitutionally entrenched bill of rights which forms part of the Constitution Act, 1982, added to the Constitution of Canada in 1982.
legal rights: the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, the right to retain a lawyer and to be informed of that right, and the right to an interpreter in a court proceeding are examples.

 Building the Bill of Rights
Hamilton noted that "bills of rights are in their origin, stipulations between kings and their subjects...
John Locke, an Englishman, had argued that rights carried over from the state of nature, and that citizens formed societies in order to better protect them; therefore, the rights themselves were absolute and inalienable (Locke, Second Treatise on Government).
Even James Madison, the Bill of Rights' greatest advocate, had first proposed them to appease members of the opposition; North Carolina and Rhode Island were not yet part of the Union, and he hoped that amendments would bring them into the fold.

 Senator Kinsella - At Work - Human Rights   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
While Canada did not have an explicit bill of rights in its first constitution like that of the American Bill of Rights, an Implied Bill of Rights was often invoked in the years before the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
One lasting significance of the Bill of Rights is section 3 which empowers the Minister of Justice to examine any act before the House of Commons and report to it, any inconsistencies between the act and the rights in enumerated in the Bill of Rights before they are passed into law.
The rights that are exclusively guaranteed to citizens of Canada are: the democratic rights in s.3, the right to leave Canada and return in s.6, and the minority language educational rights contained in s.23.

 Justice Kirby's Papers - A Bill of Rights for Australia - But do we need it? (, test) - 14 December 1997
There were proposals for bill of rights protections to cover (amongst other things) trial by jury, freedom of religion and the acquisition of property on just terms by the States.
It is unlikely that an Australian bill of rights would be able to cover, still less cope with, all of the issues of basic rights which need to be dealt with in a true charter of the people's rights.
Thus, the right to bear arms, which is enshrined in the United States bill of rights, might have been appropriate at the time of the American Revolution.

 Notes on the Amendments - The U.S. Constitution Online - USConstitution.net
Bills of rights were typically parts of the constitutions of the several states of the day (and today), placed there to ensure that certain rights were recognized by the government.
The 20th reached some notoriety during the impeachment proceedings of President Bill Clinton in 1998; the final House vote was taken after the 1998 elections, and the Senate was not scheduled to hear the case until after the swearing-in of the next Congress in 1999.
The Congress attempted to right this wrong in 1970 by passing an extension to the 1965 Voting Rights Act (which itself is enforcement legislation based on prior suffrage amendments) that gave the vote to all persons 18 or older, in all elections, on all levels.

 - Research Note - Canada's Constitution prior to 1982
Since the Canadian Bill of Rights is not a constitutional statute in the sense that it renders the conflicting statute void and of no effect, the significance of the statement that the court shall not apply the conflicting statute affects the doctrine of implied repeal.
However, the "quasi-constitutional" status of the Canadian Bill of Rights reverses this rule: where the later specific statute conflicts with the Canadian Bill of Rights, it is the later specific statute which is impliedly repealed; it "shall not be applied".
In short, to say that the Canadian Bill of Rights is a quasi-constitutional document means, through a specialized mechanism of statutory interpretation, that it exerts a sterilizing force on later specific statutes which conflict with it through a specially created doctrine of statutory interpretation.

 IT'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL (Part B)
This amendment guarantees "the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury." One of the requirements for this jury trial in criminal prosecutions is for the accused "to be confronted with the witnesses against him." In a trial for a consensual crime, who are the witnesses against the person accused?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.
Its plain object is to secure the perfect enjoyment of that great right of the common law, that a man's house shall be his own castle, privileged against all civil and military intrusion.

 Restitution for historical injustice (Jason Neyers, 9 Apr 2003)
My initial analysis of the unjust enrichment claim was that restitution was impossible unless the legislation could be shown to be invalid at the time the tax was paid, either due to inconsistency with some then-existing superior norm, or by the enactment of some later norm with retroactive effect.
Another argument that might be tried in relation to attacking the validity of the tax would be the implied "bill of rights" theory (i.e., there are certain actions which are ultra vires either level of government even without a Charter) which would count on as a "then-existing superior norm".
If I remember correctly the implied "bill of rights" theory was superseded by the Bill of Rights and then the Charter but that does not mean that it could not be resurrected to deal with earlier cases.

 Why the Bill of Rights? - Mises Institute
The clearest statement against a Bill of Rights was in Federalist 84, by Alexander Hamilton.
Hamilton also argued that "bills of rights are, in their origin, stipulations between kings and their subjects, abridgements of prerogative in favor of privilege, reservations of rights not surrendered to the prince.
Hamilton's argument against a Bill of Rights was, in essence, that the federal government could only act where its power had been clearly spelled out in the Constitution.

The former were rights of members of the polity--call them Citizens--whereas the latter belonged to all (free) members of the larger society.
The ultimate right to keep and bear arms belongs to "the people," not the "states." As the language of the Tenth Amendment shows, these two are of course not identical and when the Constitution means "states," it says so.
