Legal Rights

A legal right is a right that is about the law and your protection against it. Some of these rights include the right that everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person, which can only be taken away by the justice system, for valid reasons.

An example of this is the guarantee that Canadians, when arrested, must be told of their right to see a lawyer and must be tried within a reasonable amount of time. Another is that Canadians are also guaranteed the right to be presumed innocent until proven otherwise.
