An Unusual Thrill on Parliament Hill



A raccoon named Olivia travels all the way to Ottawa, along with a group of young Canadians, to tour Parliament Hill. Things get out of control along the way. With a pounding headache, Olivia tries to get away. She stumbles upon a secret room where she finds Sir John Owl MacDonald, John Beefendbaker and Hare Trudeau eating poutine. She ends up learning the most important lesson of all.

This story seeks to teach children there are limits to their rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Section 1 of the Charter, often referred to as the “reasonable limits clause” or “limitations clause,” not only guarantees the rights and freedoms in the Charter, it also allows the government to limit individuals’ Charter rights.
