Has your Charter-guaranteed right to freedom of expression been violated? Why?Would it make any difference to your answer if your employer was the Government of Canada?

Your assignment should be between three and six pages, double-spaced, or 1200 to 1500 words in length. If you have any questions or concerns about assignment length ask your tutor before submission.
Explain the following with specific reference to the relevant sections of the Constitution Act, 1982, and for each describe a fact scenario that illustrates the concept in operation:
a. Has your Charter-guaranteed right to freedom of expression been violated? Why?
b. Would it make any difference to your answer if your employer was the Government of Canada? If it does, discuss whether you think a Charter challenge of the restriction would be successful, applying what you have learned about how the courts define expression and the analytical framework the courts have developed for applying the Charter to factual situations.
