Gawd, repatriation of the constitution goes way back to at least William Lyon Mackenzie King in the 20's, and your hero Diefenbaker even had a crack at it; in fact that is how he began his political career even before first being elected to office. It was Diefenbaker that established the Canadian Bill of Rights. This was not something cooked up by Trudeau.

He said that the people preferred judges have power over parliament. I pointed out that no one ever asked the people. The Constitution was not put to a referendum nor was it an issue in an election.
