  Prime Minister of Canada article - Prime Minister of Canada Prime Minister Canada government political party Canadian ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Prime Minister of Canada, the head of the Canadian government, is usually the leader of the political party with the most seats in the Canadian House of Commons.
In modern-day Canada, however, his prerogatives are largely the duties to which the constitution refers to as the job of the Governor General (who is a figurehead).
The function, duties, responsibilities, and powers of the Prime Minister of Canada were established at the time the country was created as an independent nation in 1867 and were modeled upon those of the existing office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Justice Minister Anne McLellan's letter to the editor in response to the criticisms of Senator Anne Cools and MP Roger Gallaway is outrageous and deserves a rebuttal.

 Kim Campbell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
She is the only woman to have held the office of Prime Minister in Canada, and only the third (after Ertha Pascal-Trouillot in Haiti and Violeta Chamorro in Nicaragua) to lead a national government in North America.
She was cited for her status as the only woman head of government of a North American country to date, but controversy ensued among academics in Canada over the merit of this honour since she had not won an election and because many senior Ministers in the Mulroney government had not contested the leadership convention.
As Justice Minister, Campbell brought about a new rape law whose passage firmly entrenched that in cases involving sexual assault, "no means NO." While Campbell had little time to usher in legislation during her six brief months as Prime Minister, she did implement radical changes to the structure of the Canadian government.

Minister of Employment and Immigration, [1985] 1 S.C.R. In that case the refugee claimants contended that Canada's decision not to extend convention refugee status to them placed them at risk that they would be prosecuted in their home country for their political beliefs.
Canada's connection with the matter results from the fact that the fugitive came here of his own free will, and the question to be determined is whether the action of the Canadian Government in returning him to his own country infringes his liberty and security in an impermissible way.

The Justice Department of Canada seems to think the state can tell parents how they can raise their children, well to that, I say the people of Canada should be outraged and a Revolution to come forward to stop this insane war on fatherhood.
This is nonsense the Justice Minister is spouting, as it will pit more parents against one another and everyone becomes the loser, including the children of Canada.

The Department of Justice provides ongoing legal advice to the Government of Canada, including each of the departments that you have petitioned, concerning the interpretation of statutes, legal obligations of departments, and legal risk management.
Your petition also raises questions which fall within the mandates of a number of other Ministers, and for that reason, it would be inappropriate for the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada to address these questions.

The most effective means of leaving an impression on parliamentarians is to send a letter by snail mail (it's considered to be the equivalent of between hundreds to about 2,500 voter opinions, depending on whom you write to).
However, the recommendation of the December 1998 parliamentary report "For the Sake of Children" was that a system of shared-parenting, with divorced mothers and fathers having equal rights regarding children, should replace current legislation that discounts the rights of fathers and paternal grandparents.
Since then the Department of Justice Canada has consulted Canadians on a number of occasions about the subject of child custody and access.

 Protecting Canada From Terrorist Attack: What Countries is Canada's Justice Minister Citizen Of?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
It is to your government's credit that you have largely exempted Canada from such Arab counter-attack by refusing to join the American-British conquest and destruction of Iraq and the confiscation of its resources.
, there continue to be several holes in Canada's exemption from Arab retaliation, foremost among which is your appointment of Zionist Irwin Cotler as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.
Irwin Cotler works indefatigably to place Canada in the anti-Arab camp, as by defending Israel's right to oppress and murder Palestinians, as by working to suppress criticism of Zionist leadership, and as by appointing Zionists to positions of high authority.

 Paul Martin 10-Mar-2004 What kind of Justice Minister have you appointed?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
That is, anyone who aspires to be Canada's Minister of Justice will advocate the prosecution of those war crimes that are most grievous, most recent, and best documented without regard to the nationality, ethnicity, or religion of the accused.
On the other hand, anyone who aspires to be no better than Canada's Jewish Minister of Justice, will advocate the prosecution of war crimes committed by non-Jews against Jews sixty years ago, and thus necessarily crimes whose evidentiary support has been eroded by the passage of time.
Specifically, given the large number of Israelis living in Canada today, and their high participation rate in Israeli military, police, and intelligence units, and the mountain of crimes that such units have accumulated, the most productive and just prosecution of war crimes in today's Canada would be directed at Israelis.
