  Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display
is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience ( now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.
