Declaration of the Rights of the Child is law here in Canada

Duncan – I am so glad the Declaration of the Rights of the Child has made it into a newspaper. I want to thank Mary Dolan for her efforts. I first got my official information on it from Bob Ringma, MP on Feb. 27/97 and have not been able to get it recognized; great job Mary.

Now a little history:

Geneva 1924

adopted by the United Nations 1959

adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations Nov., 20, 1989

signed by Canada 1990

ratified by Canada 1991. In force in Canada 1992.

So the 54 Articles are now law. The link is below www.ohchr.org/Documents/Professionalinterest/crc.pdf Everyone should read.
