There are many people, not just members and supporters of the New Democratic Party of Canada
, who believe that the rights to occupy property should be inherent to the individual, but the rights to develop that property should be held by the Queen in right of Canada — this is not something exclusive to our friends in the NDP.
I would oppose amending our Charter of Rights and Freedoms
to refer to the ownership of property as a "right" — because let's be frank, it isn't. There are certain things that could cause someone to cease holding their land. For example, if they are unable to meet the financial obligations in relation to the retention of that land.
As for the interpretation of socialism in this thread, I must disagree with some of the "qualities" put forth here; for example, socialism has nothing to do with anti-Americanism. Moreover, to assert that unions are some inherent kind of evil would be incorrect, in my opinion. The New Democratic Party of Canada
has never expressed an interest in breaking off ties with the United States — rather, as have each and every other party represented in the House of Commons
, they have advocated for a strong and friendly relationship.
