Canada's Anti-Terror Bill Is Gift-Wrapped in Rhetoric

Rafe Mair CP

There is no question the government must keep Canada safe from terrorist activities and threats, but Bill C-51 is not the answer. Bill C-51 is wide-sweeping in powers and gift-wrapped in rhetoric. We already have an arsenal of tools in the Criminal Code and other existing anti-terror legislation, which provides Canadian law enforcement and agencies with robust powers to fight terrorists. It was existing laws that successfully empowered Canadian police to thwart, arrest and charge suspects in the Toronto 18 and Via Rail terror plots. Bill C-51 simply increases government power in ways that can threaten innocent Canadians.
