Oh Canada...

Q. When did it become a charter right to be immune from breaking this country's drug laws? 


The question is, does this open the door to terrorists challenging their arrest on the basis of the fact that a bomb-sniffing dog caught them? It looks to be the case.

UPDATE: The charter section in question (section 8) reads:


8. "Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure."
Is not suspicion of drug possession a reasonable cause for searching someone or their property?

Apparently property rights are only inferred into the charter when it means protecting drug traffickers from prosecution.
