Prior to the Charter, Parliament had the ultimate authority. It rarely overruled the Supreme Court, but it's ability to do so helped keep the judges in check. Parliamentary sovereignty was absolute - as it remains in the United Kingdom.

Yep, so what does that have to do with my comment? I, along with the majority of the electorate in Canada, prefer to have the SCC have power to apply the constitution if parliament tries to enact laws that contravene it.
