Jason Kenney: Rights & freedoms of Canadians given to us by God

3. Will civics class be merged with religion class?

He's practically half-way there already, telling a Chinese-Canadian business group during the 2015 election that the constitutional rights are passed down to Canadians from God.
According to Kenney's interpretation of the constitution, the Charter rights of Canadians derive from "being created in the likeness and image of God ... because if our rights are just given to us by a majority, or by the Parliament, or by the state, or by the judges, they can take those rights away."
Years earlier, Kenney also insisted rights are "granted to us by our Creator" to argue "fundamental human rights such as the right to life are inalienable."
