Victoria Lawyer Michael Mulligan on CFAX – Legally Speaking with Pamela McCall – discussing the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta and the rule of law. How a document entered into by King John in June of 1215 is still relevant 800 years later. The Magna Carta represented one of the origins of the concept that government authority should be limited and exercised in accordance with law, applicable to all people, rather than being arbitrary and subject to the whims of government officials. These concepts have developed over time and represent some of the fundamental principles of the constitutions of both the United Kingdom and Canada.
Legally Speaking is live on CFAX 1070 Thursdays at 11:00am.
