Great line of the day

From The Court about how the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was instrumental in the acquittal of Steven Truscott:
...although Steven Truscott’s case is simply tragic, it does effectively answer those critics who claim that the Charter hasn’t really made a positive difference in Canadian society. Today Steven Truscott joined the ranks of countless innocent Canadians who have benefited profoundly from a constitutional document that is too often, in the public consciousness at least, associated with the guilty.
Emphasis mine. Thanks to Dr. Dawg for the link.
