Property rights in the Constitution | The Liberal view

“Property rights” in the Constitution | Warren Kinsella, Feb. 24, 2011:

"What does it mean for you?

"Higher drug prices, in perpetuity, as Big Pharma will win eternal patent protections
"The loss of anti-pollution rules
"The end of new parks and the potential elimination of existing parks
"Elimination of zoning rules designed to prevent neighbourhoods from being ruined – noise bylaws, giant homes, etc.
"Friction with aboriginal peoples, with land claims being overturned and challenged
"Discrimination against women in divorce settlements
"The challenge of labour laws, and potential end to collective bargaining
"The loss of shorelines, and commercialization of public lands

"It’s crazy."
