The Canadian Constitution
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Portion

2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
    (a) freedom of conscience and religion;
    (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression,...

6. (2) Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a
         permanent resident of Canada has the right
    (b) to pursue the gaining of livelihood in any province.

7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty ... and the right not to be deprived
    thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.

12. Everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unusual
     treatment or punishment.

15. (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right
          to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law
          without discrimination...

The United States Constitution begins as follows:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty
to ourselves and our Posterity
, do ordain and establish this Constitution
for the United States of America."

The Bill of Rights Portion (also called the Amendments
to the Constitution), states:


1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
    prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
    or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to
    petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

5. No person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due
    process of law; …

8. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed,
    nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

The famous opening words of the United States Constitution declare that:

The United States is a country with justice for all.  If some Americans do
not have an objective, equal and fair chance to be admitted into the faculty
of their choice in a public university or college, then those Americans are
not receiving justice.

The Constitution also states that its aim is to create Domestic Tranquility;
obviously that means all Americans must have an objective, equal and fair
chance to be admitted into the faculty of their choice in a public university
or college.

The Constitution also states that all American's welfare is to be promoted.
If some Americans do not have an objective, equal and fair chance to be
admitted into the faculty of their choice in a public university or college,
then obviously their welfare is not being promoted.

The Constitution also bestows the blessing of liberty on all Americans; those
Americans who are not given an objective, equal and fair chance to be
admitted into the faculty of their choice in a public university or college,
CLEARLY do not have the liberty to become what they want to become through
their own hard work and effort.

The Constitution of Canada states in section 6.(2), that Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right to pursue the gaining of livelihood in any province.

You can only exercise your RIGHT to pursue the gaining of a livelihood as an Engineer, Lawyer, Electrician, Doctor, Accountant, etc. if you are given an equal, fair and objective opportunity to go to a public university or college and get an education in that field.

The Constitution of Canada states in section 7, that Everyone has the right to life, liberty ... and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.

The right to liberty includes the liberty to have an equal, fair and objective opportunity to gain admission to public universities and colleges.

The Constitution of Canada states in section 15.(1), that Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination.

The words of section 15 (1) clearly include that every Canadian has the right to an equal, fair and objective opportunity to obtain admission to a public university or college.  Public universities and colleges are creations of the law; they were created by a Provincial Government or the Federal Government passing a law which created them.  In order for every Canadian to have equality under the law that created the public university or college, every Canadian must have the same Equal, Fair and Objective opportunity to gain admission to the faculty of their choice in those law created public universities and colleges.

Canadian fundamental freedom # 2 and United States 1st Amendment
are obviously breached by any university or college admissions
criteria which:
-- includes a component which could violate free speech
    (that is obvious and needs no explanation).

Canadian fundamental freedom # 2 and United States 1st Amendment
are also breached by any university or college admissions
criteria which:
-- gives power to a few people to admit students they
    select (because those people could decide to exclude
    students based on opinions those students' express, which
    opinions reflect their conscience, religion, thoughts,
    beliefs or opinions)
.
    (If speaking your opinions causes you to be
    excluded from the education you need to pursue
    your desired profession, then you do not have
    free speech.  You do not have freedom of
    conscience, religion, thought, belief, opinion
    and expression, if when you express them you
    are excluded from the education you need to
    pursue your desired profession)

Canadian fundamental freedom # 2 and United States 1st Amendment
are also breached by any university or college admissions
criteria which:
-- includes a component the score of which cannot be
    checked and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; OR
-- does not allow students to see exactly how their
    admissions score was determined and challenge any
    part of their admissions score that is not verifiable
    or is not based on a provable form of provably
    relevant merit.
    (because students could be excluded based on
    opinions those students' express, which opinions reflect
    their conscience, religion, thoughts, beliefs or opinions)
.
    (If speaking your opinions causes you to be
    excluded from the education you need to pursue
    your desired profession, then you do not have
    free speech.  You do not have freedom of
    conscience, religion, thought, belief, opinion
    and expression, if when you express them you
    are excluded from the education you need to
    pursue your desired profession)

Canadian freedom # 6 (2) (b) is breached by any university
or college admissions criteria which:
-- gives power to a few people to admit students they
    select

If some people, whatever their title (be it professor, doctor,
administrator, etc.) can exclude you, for their own private
reasons, from the education you need to pursue your chosen
livelihood in your chosen province; then you are obviously
not free to pursue your chosen livelihood in that province.

In other words, if through your hard work you demonstrated
greater academic merit than other students and greater other
(proven relevant) merit than other students, but some people
have the power to keep you out of that profession by not
letting you into the faculty you need to graduate from to
pursue that livelihood; then you are NOT free to pursue your
chosen livelihood in your chosen province.

Canadian freedom # 6 (2) (b) is breached by any university
or college admissions criteria which:
-- includes a component the score of which cannot be
    checked and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; OR
-- does not allow students to see exactly how their
    admissions score was determined and challenge any
    part of their admissions score that is not verifiable
    or is not based on a provable form of provably
    relevant merit.

    It is obvious that if you can be kept out of the faculty
    you need to graduate from, for reasons that are NOT
    legitimate or not verifiable, then you can be WRONGLY
    kept out of that faculty.

    If you earned your way into that faculty with superior
    demonstrated academic merit and (if relevant) superior
    demonstrated other merit, but you are wrongly kept out,
    then you are NOT free to pursue your chosen livelihood.

Canadian freedom # 7 and United States 5th Amendment
are breached by any university or college admissions
criteria which:
-- gives power to a few people to admit students they
    select; OR
-- includes a component the score of which cannot be
    checked and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; OR
-- does not allow students to see exactly how their
    admissions score was determined and challenge any
    part of their admissions score that is not verifiable
    or is not based on a provable form of provably
    relevant merit.

The right to liberty does not simply mean you are free from
being randomly thrown into jail.  That never happened
before the constitution and no-one ever expected it to
begin happening.  No-one thought that a constitutional
right to liberty had to be placed in the constitution to
prevent the authorities from having people randomly
thrown into jail, because it did not happen before the
constitution, and no-one thought it was about to start
happening.  So let's get serious about what the right
to liberty means.

The right to liberty means that you are equally free
with all other free citizens to have an objectively fair
and equal chance to participate in and receive the
benefits of all that the country has to offer.

If some people have the power to simply refuse to let
you into a faculty, then it is not an OBJECTIVE fairness
and equality; and you do not have a fair and equal
chance to get the benefit of being in that faculty.

When you are excluded from getting the education you
need because of unverifiable scores or scores that are
not legitimate or not relevant, that is the same as
some people having the power to simply exclude you at
their whim;
because if it cannot be checked for fairness
objectivity, legitimacy, relevance, and compliance with
the constitution, they can do anything they want, hence
it is at their whim.  If they dress up that whim with
other completely subjective things, such as an interview
or an essay, each of which cannot be checked for
objectivity, fairness, relevancy, legitimacy and
compliance with the constitution; IT IS STILL A FEW
PEOPLE WHO ARE getting to ignore all of your proven
merit, and give someone else the spot you earned
through your hard work.

Think about it, the professors, doctors and administrators
have NO SPECIAL ABILITIES to see into the hearts and
minds of students, hence they cannot determine who is
a better student or a better person by the trivial
exercise of asking a few questions or reading an essay.
All they can do is pick the students they personally
liked better; and in a public university or college that
is WRONG, because if the public is paying for it, then
the public must all have an OBJECTIVELY EQUAL chance;
and that can only be accomplished by judging students
based on their proven academic merit, and IF there is
another relevant form of proveable merit, then also on
that other proveable form of relevant merit.  Because
if it is not proveably correct, legitimate, relevant,
objective and fair, then it is at someone's whim; and
that robs people of an objectively fair and equal
chance of receiving the benefits of our country.

____________________________________________________

Canadian freedom # 12 and United States 8th Amendment
forbid cruel or unusual punishment.

There are many forms of punishment.  When a parent
tells a child that he can't watch television; the being
disallowed from watching t.v. is a punishment.

When a high school or university tells its students
who qualified to play on the school's basketball team
or hockey team, that if they don't achieve a certain
minimum grade point average they will not be allowed
to play on the team, that is a punishment.

Hence, being not allowed to do something is a recognized
form of punishment.

It is a cruel and unusual punishment to not allow a
student with a superior grade point average into a
faculty because that student exercised their right
to free speech, and the interviewer or essay reader
did not agree with the opinions that student expressed.

It is a cruel and unusual punishment to not allow a
student with a superior grade point average into a
faculty because a professor, doctor or administrator,
for their own reasons, decided to exclude that student.

It is a cruel and unusual punishment to not allow a
student with a superior grade point average into a
faculty based on a score which cannot be checked
and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; because
then it may be a completely false score.

It is a cruel and unusual punishment to not allow a
student with a superior grade point average into a
faculty when the student is not allowed to see
exactly how their admissions score was determined
and challenge any part of their admissions score
that is not verifiable or is not based on a provable
form of provably relevant merit; because then
the student may have been excluded for non-legitimate,
non-relevant, non-objective, unfair reasons.

____________________________________________________

If you can be kept out of a university or college faculty
because a few people have the power to let in who they
choose, and to refuse who they choose to refuse; or by
the use of unverifiable scores, or by the use of NON-
legitimate scores, irrelevant criteria, or by the use
of false scores, then you are NOT getting the equal
protection of the law, and you are NOT getting the
equal benefit of the law.

The words of section 15 (1) clearly include that every
Canadian has the right to an objective, equal and fair
opportunity to obtain admission to a publicly funded
university or college.  Universities and colleges are
creations of the law; they were created by a Provincial
Government or the Federal Government passing a law
which created them; or they were created under
legislation which creates corporations, etc.  In order
for every Canadian to have equality under the law that
created the university or college, every Canadian must
have the same OBJECTIVE, Equal and Fair opportunity
to gain admission to the faculty of their choice in those
law created universities and colleges.  REMEMBER,
a person is born and they come into existence without
the law; however, a university or college is NOT born;
it has no existence except that given to it by and
under the law through which it was created.  Hence,
for every student to be equal before and under the
law which created that university or college, and to
have equal benefit and protection, they must have
the same OBJECTIVE, Equal and Fair opportunity
to gain admission to the faculty of their choice.

____________________________________________________

In addition to the Multi Mini Interview ("MMI"), there are other CONSTITUTION BREACHING admission criteria that some professors, doctors and administrators use to secure for themselves the power to personally chose who is allowed to be educated in the public university or college faculty that they are being paid to run.

Those professors, doctors and administrators have betrayed the whole country, they have betrayed all of us.  They were hired by a public university or college and paid with public money, because they promised to treat all citizens equally and fairly; then after they got the job they betrayed that promise and set up systems to give themselves the powers of a dictator.

When I refer to the following university and college admissions criteria as scams, it is not to be derogatory or insulting, it is simply to be accurate.  It does not matter to me if someone is wealthy, has an expensive wardrobe, and is considered by society to be very prestigious, powerful and upstanding; if they are doing a scam, its still a scam.

There is the essay scam.  It works as follows.  The students are told that their admission will be based to a very significant part on an essay they write.  The admission value of the essay is set high enough that the essay grade will be the determining factor for admission.  There is no way for the student to have their essay grade checked for legitimacy, fairness, relevance, or discrimination.  There is no way for the student to find out if their essay grade was determined in VIOLATION of any provisions of the Country's Constitution.  There is no way for the student to correct any unsupportable false statements that were made about the student's essay or about the student.  But that is not the worst part of the essay scam.

The worst part of the essay scam is that even if student A writes a (in some people's eyes) better essay than student B; IT MEANS NOTHING more than that on one occasion student A wrote what some people considered to be a better essay than did student B.  Because if student B has a higher university grade point average, THAT PROVES that student B is either a harder and more dedicated worker than student A, or that student B is more intelligent than student A, or that student B is both a harder and more dedicated worker and is more intelligent than student A.

Consequently an essay can NEVER defeat 3 to 4 YEARS of university grade point average PROOF, demonstrating which student has PROVEN that they have more provable merit.

Those professors, doctors and administrators have NO special powers which allow them to know that a less good student (ie. a student with lower grades) is better than a better student (ie. a student with higher grades), based on their reading of an essay.  That can be proven by asking them these questions:

- Can even a professional psychiatrist or psychologist determine a person's character, intelligence and commitment from reading an essay that person wrote; or do they have to perform a series of different tests over a long period of time, and even then they can only give their opinion, they cannot guarantee that they are correct ?

- In court, when psychiatric evidence is required is it often true that each side has a psychiatrist that comes to the opposite conclusion in their assessment of a person's character, intelligence, abilities, etc.; and hence even after a battery of tests done by a professional psychiatrist, does the answer on a person's character, intelligence and commitment remain uncertain ?

- How can you, by reading an essay, do what a professional psychiatrist or psychologist cannot do even after they have administered a series of tests over a long period of time ?

- How do you know if what the students wrote in their essays were their true opinions, ideas, thoughts and beliefs ?

- Explain how you are meeting the prime directive of a public university or college, which is to give all students FAIR, OBJECTIVE and EQUAL entrance opportunities based on the principals set out in the Constitution and in the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, by letting 3 to 4 years of university grade point average proof be superseded by the score that you personally give to the students on an essay or an interview ?

There is also the interview committee scam.  It works essentially the same as the essay scam.  A few people, who have NO special powers to see into the hearts and minds of students, interview the students.  Then they claim that some students with lower grades are more qualified than other students with higher grades, JUST ON THEIR SAY SO.  That leaves those few people completely free to violate the Constitution, to be as unfair and discriminatory as they desire to be, and to rob students who earned their way (through hard work demonstrated by higher grades) of the benefit of their hard work.

I believe that there are also scams that I am not presently aware of; but they all work the same way.  They all work in the same rotten way.  A group of people, calling themselves a committee, want the dictatorial power to chose whomever they please, and want to be able to discriminate without being caught, so they set up a criteria which CANNOT be checked or verified for legitimacy, honesty, fairness, constitutional breaches, relevancy, or discrimination; and that allows them to do anything they please and claim whatever they want, because there is no way to check it for errors or lies in the score they assign to a student.

Some universities and colleges are dishonest.  They will teach the constitution as a great achievement which should be honoured and followed; then they will turn around and say, 'but we, the university, the college', do not have to follow the constitution, because it only applies to the government.  Those dishonest colleges and universities will say that the constitution is a great and wonderful document which they choose not to follow, because it only applies to the government.  That argument is immoral, hypocritical AND WRONG.

Universities and colleges that are running (to a significant extent) on government money, and are performing the government's function of being responsible for the provision of education, are just as legally bound by the constitution as is the government.  Once they use government money and they perform a government function, they are a part of the government.  It does not matter how they sing and dance, they took the money, they are doing a government responsibility (the provision of education), they are part of the government and the constitution sticks to them.

The Members of Parliament, The Congresswomen, The Congressmen, and the Senators, should make sure that the constitution is followed by universities and colleges that are receiving money from the taxation of the population, and who are performing the government's function of the provision of education.  If our elected government members believe in the value of the constitution then they should make sure that it is followed; because they and they alone have the power to cause the constitution to be followed or to allow it to be ignored.

Then there is the cry of the truly dishonest university and college; “Autonomy, autonomy, we are autonomous, so we don’t have to follow the constitution.”

If they are taking our tax dollars to pay their salaries and their operating expenses, they are not autonomous, they are a public employee, because it is public money that is paying them and their expenses.

However, their cry of constitution breaching autonomy brings up the BIGGEST question.  If they do not want to follow the country’s constitution, then why do the country’s elected representatives want to give them our tax dollars to carry out the government function of the provision of education in a way that contravenes our country’s constitution ?

Even if we had NO Constitutional Rights, would it make sense to pay professors, doctors and administrators with public money (money we worked for and paid out in taxes) and then allow them to be dictators over which of us gets into certain faculties ?

Why would anyone in their right mind pay someone else to be a dictator over them ?

When our government gives public money to professors, doctors and administrators and allows them to use an admissions process:

(1) where they can violate free speech; or

(2) where they can personally decide which students to admit and which
     students to exclude; or

(3) which includes a component the answers to which cannot be checked
     and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; or

(4) which includes a component the score of which cannot be checked
     and verified for legitimacy and accuracy; or

(5) which does not allow students to see exactly how their admissions
     score was determined and challenge any part of their admissions
     score that is not verifiable or is not based on a provable form of
     provably relevant merit;

then our government is allowing the previously discussed constitutional breaches to take place.  However, even if there were no constitutional rights, paying professors, doctors and administrators to be dictators over which of us are allowed certain types of education; instead of allowing people equal access to education based on their proven merit, is undemocratic and against the principal of giving everyone an objectively fair and equal chance to earn their destiny through their own hard work.
