put not your trust in princes

Trust is way up for judges, and well down for politicians. Well haven't we done a beautiful thing, if inadvertently? To our leadership hopefuls I declare: the Canadian people have given us the impetus to reopen the constitutional debate. Why not strike while the iron is hot and rid ourselves of the Notwithstanding Clause once and for all? The nasal conservative whining about unaccountable law lords might fall on deaf ears. Or I'm reading too deeply into 24-hour news networkSunday filler.

I think you may be. My guess would be people would not see the eventual outcome, of stripping a power from politicians, but the process of politicians "making a fuss."
Of course, as Paul Martin suggested, it can be done federally quite easily...though apparently such a move will only achieve legitimacy if political commentators are not surprised.
