  • Appointed Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Information Minister in Canada. (October 2008).

2nd Constitution of Canada

During the Beta version of the New World, it was Adam Sutler who stepped up to the plate to deliver Canada’s first constitution. After the V1 crisis, it was Zanalan who would rise to the occasion to start The Evolution of a Constitution suitable for V1 World.

 From the launch of V1 it was apparent that the existing Constitution was no longer applicable to the new game realities. I began working on the outline of the second Constitution at that time. Due to the many changes taking place for both my persona and my country following the launch, the real “work” was stalled at that point.
By the time Tantis took office things had settled down enough for work in earnest to begin. A first draft was submitted to him for review and comment. After his input I completed the final (pre-approval) version. On December 30, 2008 the new Constitution was presented to Congress for approval. On January 16, 2009, after a lengthy discussion in Congress, the final version was posted on the eRepublik forum for final ratification. The ratification of the Constitution occurred at 22:35h on Day 427 (January 21, 2009).
(Zanalan, May 09)

Unlike the Beta constitution, the public saw little of the V1 document in its formative stages, as its prospects and principles were debated within congress alone. But the document itself was not entirely a foreign construction, as many of the rights and divisions of power of the Beta Constitution were maintained within the document, with the most major change being the requirements for a constitutional amendment, the elimination of local government, the removal of certain acts and rights of Canadian citizens, and the reformation of the Supreme Court. When one compares the two constitutions, we see that many of the rights written into the Beta constitution were removed from the V1 Constitution. Among these were the universal rights of the individual which consisted of Freedom of conscience and religion, and Freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press other forms of communication. As for Citizen-centric rights the Legal Rights, Banning Rights and the Right to Bear Arms were removed from the V1 draft, along with one of the most shocking omissions: the fundamental equality of citizens. Does this mean that these rights no longer exist? Not necessarily, as an old hold-over from the constitution was maintained:

 Rights not mentioned. The guarantee in this Charter of certain rights and freedoms shall not be construed as denying the existence of any other rights or freedoms that exist in Canada. 
(Constitution of Canada, Section II, Article 8)

According to Constitutional author Zanalan, those measures which overlapped with the eRepublikan rules seemed redundant in constitutional form, while others were unenforceable.

 Many of these guarantees were actually under the jurisdiction of the Admins and eRepublik law. Since these issues were beyond our control, then there was no need to include them in our Constitution. For example, ‘Banning: Every Canadian Citizen upon Banning … has the right to be informed promptly of the reasons therefore….’ Since the Admins are the only ones who can ban someone, they are the only ones to determine what (if any) notification is appropriate. Even if our Constitution had promised a personal email from the President, it would be unenforceable. Others of those original clauses were not included because they guaranteed rights that were already impossible to abrogate. The Right to Bear Arms is a good example of this. The original clause gave “…the right to purchase and own weaponry of any quality….” Since there is no way to ban the purchase of weapons, the right did not need to be enshrined.
