I've looked up the Canadian Charter. It does, indeed, commence:
"Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of
God and the rule of Law".
However, it also guarantees "freedom of conscience and religion" as one of
the "Fundamental Freedoms".
There's no reference to God in the US Bill of Rights but I thought there was
in the Constitution itself. I'll look later.
