A Home Rule Charter for a New Republic


Section 1 – Under Natural and Customary Law, all authority arises from the inborn and unalienable liberty and sovereignty of the people, who are the source of all law and government. Under this maxim, all legitimate government owes its existence to the people whom those governments serve, and governments exist to secure and protect the rights of the people and their communities. Any system of government that becomes destructive of those ends is not legitimate, lawful, operative or constitutional.

Section 2 - The people of the territories known as “Canada” possess both the collective and individual right of self-government in their local community to ensure their well being, peace and liberty as freeborn men and women. That right precedes and predates all of the laws, statutes and acts of the government of Canada, its Parliament and the Crown of England, and cannot be usurped, superseded, nullified or in any way altered or diminished by those external powers.

Section 3 – Under this same right, the people of the territories known as “Canada” are not obligated to owe allegiance to Canada, its Parliament or the Crown of England or their laws when these powers violate, diminish or threaten either the liberties and rights of the people, the sanctity and health of the land itself or higher moral and international law. Under such conditions, the people are required to actively dissociate themselves and secede from those tyrannical powers, and through their own self-governing assemblies establish a new and just system of government to maintain the civil peace.

Section 4 - The people of of Canada possess the right to use those local constitutional governments to make and enforce their own laws through their own Assemblies, Courts and Peace Officers. This right shall not eliminate, limit, or reduce the sovereign right of other local governments or of the constitutional Republic as a whole.

Section 5 - The people of Canada within their local self-governing communities along with natural ecosystems within their jurisdictions possess the right to clean air, water, and soil. This includes the right to be free from activities or forces which pose risk or harm the clean air, water, and soil within their communities.

Section 6 - The people of Canada within their local self-governing communities possess the following inherent, unalienable civil rights and liberties under Natural Law which cannot be restricted, abrogated, denied or abolished by any government, authority or statute. No governing body within Canada shall make any law or pass any statute that threatens, diminishes or abolishes these fundamental rights. These liberties are not limited by the act of defining them, and include but are not restricted to the following:

  • Freedom of thought, speech and expression

  • Freedom of conscience and religion, and freedom from religion

  • Freedom of the press and publication

  • Freedom of cultural expression and autonomy

  • Freedom to organize politically and to form political parties and movements

  • Freedom of dissent, civil disobedience and non-cooperation with the law and government according to one's conscience and the provisions of the Common Law

  • The right to fair, equal, speedy and responsive treatment before the law

  • The constitutional and unalienable right to a trial by jury under the common law

  • The right to bear arms and defend oneself and one's family against arbitrary, cruel or unjust treatment, including from agents of the government

  • The right to be free from fear, harassment, discrimination and exploitation

  • The right to parent and raise one's own children with love and respect free of any threat, intervention or assault by any agency or power

  • The right to free and unrestricted movement

  • The right to life itself, through the free and unrestricted access to all of life's essentials, including healthy food and water, quality medical care, education at every level, public transportation, decent housing and fair, sustaining and meaningful employment

Section 7 - All the people of Canada possess the right to protect and enforce the rights and prohibitions secured by this Charter. This shall include the right of all of the people to intervene in any legal action involving the rights and prohibitions recognized by this Charter, and the right to act politically and to undertake any form of direct action and civil disobedience without fear of reprimand or punishment in order to protect the fundamental liberties and rights of this Charter. All rights secured by this Charter are inherent, fundamental, and unalienable, and shall be self-executing and enforceable against both private and public actors.
