About Know Your Rights - A Field Guide to Rights and Freedoms in Canada

Know Your Rights is an on-the-ground and in-the-field exploration of our rights as Canadian citizens. Host Craig Norris navigates the complex world of what we legally can and cannot do in our country. What freedoms do we have? And how far can we push it before someone pushes back?    

Using The Charter of Rights and Freedoms as a jumping off point, KYR explores how our most basic rights affect our day-to-day lives. What are we allowed to say? Who can we associate with? What protection do we have against discrimination? And where do we go from here?  

As listeners, you'll be challenged by the views of Canadians from across the political spectrum. You'll meet people who are pushing our rights and freedoms to new lengths - and those who are pushing back.  Plus you can join the discussion on our Know Your Rights web forum.
