The Country Needs Civic Engagement

The following is a fascinating interview by Viva Frei (David Freiheit) with the last living Canadian First Minister from the patriation of the constitution in 1982, including the negotiations that lead up to this moment in history. The former Premier of Newfoundland, the Hon. Brian Peckford, puts the Covid-19 pandemic into context, especially as we consider constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms. The interview ends with Mr. Peckford reminding us that the health of any country’s constitution relies on the ongoing engagement of its citizens.

Mr. Peckford is also a contributor at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy and his contributions can be found here:
