  Constitutional Keywords – Victoria Charter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The ‘Victoria Charter’ refers to a package of changes to the Canadian Constitution that was debated by Prime Minister Trudeau and the provincial Premiers in Victoria in June 1971.
The Victoria Charter's key elements touched the following subjects: fundamental freedoms and political rights, language rights, the composition and appointment of the Supreme Court of Canada, income security, and a constitutional amending formula.
The ‘Victoria Charter’ also would have abolished the federal powers to reserve and disallow provincial legislation (see reservation and disallowance), committed governments to the reduction of social and economic disparities between the provinces, and formalized annual conferences of the Prime Minister and the Premiers.

 [No title]
The charter process was to involve parents in deciding how the charter would contribute to achieving the school's objectives, allowing them, as members of the community, to determine the future of their school (Hayward, 1993).
Charter documents are considered to be legal documents in New Zealand and the United States while in Victoria they are considered to be a formal understanding between the school council and the funding body.
The use of the charter to document the directions and proposed actions of a school ensures all members of the community are plotting a course headed in the same direction and assists in building internal and external confidence in operations of schools.

 The Victoria Charter, Constitutional Reform And Quebec (1971) - Readings - Quebec History
The social policy article actually proposed in the Victoria Charter fell quite short of the Quebec proposition; the list of concurrent powers was not as extensive as that of the Quebec proposal and no mention.
Consequently, a few days after the Victoria Conference, and after much consultation, the government of Quebec rejected the Victoria Charter, although Bourassa had given to his counterparts in the various provinces the impression that he would accept.
Yet, the failure of the Victoria Charter was to rob Quebec of the opportunity to obtain a veto over constitutional matters; in retrospect, this appears as a catastrophe in light of what was to happen later.

Victoria's charter would be written in clear language, with opening words that set out the community values that underpin it.
The charter would also play an important role in policy development in government, in the preparation of legislation, in the way in which courts and tribunals interpret laws, and in the manner in which public officials treat people in Victoria.
We also believe the charter should recognise the power of the Victorian Parliament, not just to balance such interests, but to override the rights listed in the charter where this is needed for the benefit of the community.

A charter school is an autonomous school that is established through a charter agreement with either a public school board or the minister of education.
Charter schools have their own school board and have considerable freedom to implement educational services that are different from public schools.
The charter board is accountable to the local board or the minister of education depending upon who established the charter school.

 Parks Victoria: History page
Parks Victoria was created in December 1996 by bringing together the management of the former National Parks Service and the former Melbourne Parks and Waterways, together with other park assets previously managed by a range of different authorities, committees of management and trusts.
Parks Victoria's Charter is to manage parks and other assets on behalf of the State and is empowered to do this under the Parks Victoria Act 1998.
Victoria's national parks have progressively been expanded from some 4% of the State in the early 1970s to approximately 16% today.

 LIJ: Volume 78: No.12 (December 2004) - Human rights it’s time
It allows the Parliament to declare that a legislative provision is to apply “notwithstanding”[29] the Charter, and it also provides for the Charter rights to be “subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society”.
Victoria’s Human Rights Charter can play a valuable role in reconnecting Australian law with the international human rights jurisprudence that Australia has publicly promised the world to uphold and implement, but in the past eight years has increasingly and shamefully retreated from.
With Victoria’s formal embrace, through a Charter, of Australia’s promises under treaties like the ICCPR, the High Court and Australian common law may be nudged back on course, once again to be invigorated by, as Sir Gerard Brennan described it in Mabo, “the powerful influence of the Covenant”.

 Encyclopedia: Victoria Charter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The underlying reason for this fundamental similarity between the ECHR and the Charter lies in the fact that the Canadian Charter and the European Convention are both inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The first major attempt to entrench a charter of rights was the Victoria formula of 1971 (see Victoria Charter) but it was not finally agreed upon.
Entrenchment of a charter of rights not only diminishes the notion of parliamentary sovereignty (in the sense that legislative enactments are now subject to review by the courts to ensure compliance with the Charter), but it also, in effect, transfers authority from elected representatives to the judiciary.

 Constitutional Keywords – Charter of Rights and Freedoms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The ‘Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ is Part 1 of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (U.K.), 1982, c.11.
These categories are the fundamental freedoms (traditionally freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly and association), democratic rights, mobility rights, protections afforded those persons in contact with the criminal justice system, egalitarian or equality rights, linguistic rights, language of education rights, Aboriginal rights and multicultural rights.
One view is that a charter of rights diminishes the power of our elected representatives in that all legislation enacted is subject to review by our courts to ensure charter compliance.

Victoria can be a leader within Australia and convince other states of the need for a Charter.
A Victorian Human Rights Charter would ensure that Victoria is in compliance with the promises Australia has made to the rest of the world.
The protection of freedoms of thought, expression, religion and belief; the rights to non-discrimination and equality before the law; and the right to participate equally and actively in the political life of the Victorian community are fundamental.

 Victoria leads the way on a 'Bill of Rights' - On Line Opinion - 22/12/2005
The charter would also play an important role in policy development within government, in the preparation of legislation, in the way in which courts and tribunals interpret laws and in the manner in which public officials treat people within Victoria.
We recommend that the charter protect those rights that are the most important to an open and free democracy, such as the rights to expression, to association, to the protection of families and to vote.
We also believe that the charter should recognise the power of the Victorian Parliament, not just to balance such interests, but to override the rights listed in the charter where this is needed for the benefit of the community as a whole.
