In Toward the Charter Christopher MacLennan explores the origins of this dramatic revolution in Canadian human rights, from its beginnings in the Great Depression to the critical developments of the 1960s. At the end of the Second World War, a growing concern that Canadians' civil liberties were not adequately protected, coupled with the international revival of the concept of universal human rights, led to a long public campaign to adopt a national bill of rights. While these initial efforts had been only partially successful by the 1960s, they laid the foundation for the radical change in Canadian human rights achieved by Pierre Elliott Trudeau in the 1980s.

CHRISTOPHER MacLENNAN . Published by: McGill-Queen's University Press. eISBN: 978-0-7735-7100-6. Subjects: Political Science. After 1952‚ and yet another refusal to enact a Canadian bill of rights by the St Laurent government‚ the country’s various civil libertarians and human rights advocates retreated from their campaign.

Toward the Charter offers a new perspective on Canadian human rights history. MacLennan convincingly relates the movement for a bill of rights to the events that took place in the United Nations. Many scholars have noted Canada's role in drafting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its impact at home. MacLennan takes this a step further by showing how such events changed the nature of civil liberties organizations in the 1950s and beyond

The Canadian Bill of Rights remains in effect but is widely acknowledged to be limited in its effectiveness because it is a federal statute only, and so not directly applicable to provincial laws. These legal and constitutional limitations were a significant reason that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was established as an tutional-level Bill of. Rights for all Canadians, governing the application of both federal and provincial law in Canada, with the patriation of the Constitution of Canada in 1982.

However, the 1960 Bill of Rights was a dismal failure MacLennan, Christopher.

However, the 1960 Bill of Rights was a dismal failure. As Frank Scott noted in 1964, that pretentious piece of legislation has proven as ineffective as many of us predicted.

At the end of the Second World War, a growing concern that Canadians' civil liberties were not adequately protected, coupled with the international revival of the concept of universal human rights, led to a long public campaign to adopt a national bill of rights. While these initial efforts had been only partially successful by the 1960s, they laid the foundation for the radical change in Canadian human rights achieved by Pierre Elliott Trudeau in the 1980s. In "Toward the Charter" Christopher MacLennan explores the origins of this dramatic revolution in Canadian human rights, from its beginnings in the Great Depression to the critical developments of the 1960s. Drawing heavily on the experiences of a diverse range of human rights advocates, the author provides a detailed account of the various efforts to resist the abuse of civil liberties at the hands of the federal government and provincial legislatures and the resulting campaign for a national bill of rights. The important roles played by parliamentarians such as John Diefenbaker and academics such as F.R. Scott are placed alongside those of trade unionists, women, and a long list of individuals representing Canada's multicultural groups to reveal the diversity of the bill of rights movement. At the same time MacLennan weaves Canadian-made arguments for a bill of rights with ideas from the international human rights movement led by the United Nations to show that the Canadian experience can only be understood within a wider, global context.
