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:
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.
