I don’t fully understand the nature or scope of your epiphany (so parts of this response may be redundant, and parts may be incomplete), but I do appreciate your apology, and would like to offer my own if my original response seemed snarky; I originally wrote a different response, decided the issue was more appropiate to GD, and that’s what prompted my response.
I don’t know if these were included in your ephiphany, but there are two points that I would like to make. First, you seem to be unaware of the differing meanings that the word “government” has North and South of the border. Second, I don’t think that it is accurate to describe criminal code as limiting the Constitution; it has no such authority. Rather, criminal code presents limitations which were already allowed in the Constitution.
