“It’s a charter situation and the charter says the provinces cannot opt out in the case of basic freedoms,” Trudeau said. “I believe my fundamental freedoms are being violated.”

That’s right, Re. J.J. Trudeau believes that her fundamental freedoms are being violated because the Chief Electoral Officer has ruled that “titles” includes “Reverend”.

the Alberta Election Act specifically states in section 83.3(d) that “no titles, degrees, prefixes or suffixes may be included with a name.”

That seems pretty unambiguous to me, but the privilege that religions think they deserve apparently extends to election ballots.
