In Canada, property rights are based on hundreds of years of common law. They were included in the Canadian Bill of Rights in 1960 and read as follows"

It is hereby recognized and declared that in Canada, there have existed and shall continue to exist the following human rights and fundamental freedoms, namely,

(a) the right of the individual to life, liberty, security of the person and enjoyment of property, and (b) the right not to be deprived thereof except by due process of law.


The Bill goes on to state:
no law shall be construed or applied so as to:
(e) deprive a person of the right to a fair hearing in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice for the determination of his rights and obligations

It is obvious that Right to Farm Legislation introduced in British Columbia in 1996 took away two of our basic rights and freedoms, ie. enjoyment of property and the ability to appeal to a court of law when our rights have been violated.

This legislation allows abusive propane cannons users to trample our property rights and goes so far as to protect them from court action. If an individual wishes to take a grower using propane cannons to court he will find that the grower is protected by the Farm Practices Board. A noise pollution victim may only appeal to this "biased" body and not to a court of law.

This is unfair, unjust, and in our view, open to challenge!
