Abstract
In this Essay I describe the origin and design of the Charter's distinctive mode of rights protection. I then outline the Charter's impact in the courts and in the arena of constitutional politics since 1982. My account demonstrates the difficulty of sustaining constitutional change once one unleashes the constitutional tiger; it also reveals the surprising fragility of modem norms of pluralistic federalism, democracy, equality and the rule of law.
