As the most important actors in democracy, the people are not only some electors who delegate all their powers and confidence to the classic branches of government. They participate actively in the life of the society by inciting the removal of bad and unfair statutes enacted by Parliament and applicable to them, statutes that often infringe their rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. They do so specifically by using their right in judicial review of statutes before the competent judges. The current work of research consists of comparing the judicial review initiated by the people in France and in Canada.
