Bill C-51 wraps up at committee with few changes

Not one of the more than 100 amendments submitted by opposition parties to try and change the government’s much-criticized anti-terror bill were adopted as a House of Commons committee wrapped up its study of the legislation.

MPs adopted three minor amendments — the ones tabled by the Conservatives and leaked late last week. The government amendments included changes to the “lawful protest” aspect of the bill, which clarifies CSIS does not have law enforcement powers and puts limitations on Canada’s public safety minister’s ability to direct airlines in efforts to prevent terrorist activities.

Anti-terror Bill C-51 to be changed as Tories respond to criticism

1- The government will also put forward an amendment to make it clear that CSIS agents would not have the power to arrest people.

 


Open letter to Parliament: Amend C-51 or kill it!

Dear Members of Parliament,

Please accept this collective open letter as an expression of the signatories’ deep concern that Bill C-51 (which the government is calling the Anti-terrorism Act, 2015) is a dangerous piece of legislation in terms of its potential impacts on the rule of law, on constitutionally and internationally protected rights, and on the health of Canada’s democracy.

 


Anti-terrorism bill C-51 'dangerous' legislation, 100 academics say

More than 100 academics are urging the government to drastically alter C-51, the Conservatives' proposed anti-terrorism legislation, arguing it is far too broad and doesn't come with safeguards to protect Canadians' privacy rights.

The group, made up mainly of law professors from across Canada, have signed an open letter arguing the proposed bill has major problems that threaten Canadians' privacy and freedom of speech.


Canada is no home for Bill C-51

A family protesting clear-cut logging on Haida Gwaii; grandparents speaking out against war; First Nations blocking a pipeline through their traditional lands; union workers engaged in a wildcat strike; fishermen opposed to oil tanker traffic; filmmakers documenting civil disobedience; journalists advocating an independent Quebec — what do each of these groups have in common?

Each could be charged with terrorism under the Conservative’s draconian Bill C-51, which would criminalize any action deemed a threat to the economic and financial security of Canada, to critical infrastructure or to Canada’s diplomatic relations.

 

Quebec's not so quiet revolution, and why we all need to join it!


Bill C-51 bars CSIS from committing 'bodily harm,' sexual violation

The government's proposed anti-terror legislation expands the powers of Canadian Security Intelligence Service to allow it to "disrupt" suspected terrorist threats — but it also expressly prohibits CSIS from killing or seriously injuring a subject.

What's not clear exactly is where the line between those activities is drawn and what that means for the agency when it comes to interrogation techniques, experts on civil liberties and security point out.

 

 

Walrus - Bill C-51:
 the Good, the Bad . . . and the Truly Ugly

Bill C-51, the Harper government’s recently proposed “Anti-terrorism Act,” restructures our national security laws so extensively that it will take years before we understand the law’s full effect. There is good in the act, but there also is bad, and even truly ugly. The details are difficult for non-experts to navigate. That is why we are providing Walrus readers with this summary.

از نکات مثبت این لایحه اینست که با امور امنیتی کشور از طریق قوانین برخورد خواهد شد و نه از طریق مصوباتی که دولت با استفاده از  قدرت خود به اجرا در میاورد . یک از این موارد لیست آنهائی میباشد که ممنوعیت پرواز دارند که سابق بر این ضوابط مشخصی نداشته است.

برخوردهای شدی  و بازجوهائی خشونت آمیز بعد از حوادث یازده سپنامبررایج گردیدند. این خطر وجود دارد که این لایحه این نوع رفتار ها را در کانادا متداول کند، بخصوص که مدت بازداشت شخص مورد سوء ظن طبق این لایحه از سه روز به هفت روز افزایش پیدا میکند.


Anti-terror Bill C-51 to be changed as Tories respond to criticism

The government will propose a handful of amendments to the proposed anti-terror bill when it goes to clause-by-clause review on Tuesday, CBC News has learned, including a proposal that would protect protests from being captured by the new measures.

Excerpted from Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau - 1849.

Very relevant today still.

Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavour to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They think that , if they should resist, they remedy would be worse than the evil. But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. But is it the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. It makes it worse.
Why is it not more apt to anticipate and provide for reform?
Why does it not cherish its wise minority?
 Why does it cry and resist before it is hurt?
Why does it not encourage it's citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them? Why does it always crucify Christ, and excommunicate Copernicus and Luther, and pronounce Washington and Franklin rebels?
One would think, that a deliberate and practical denial of its authority was the only offence never contemplated by government; else, why has it not assigned its definite, its suitable and proportionate, penalty? If a man who has no property refuses but once to earn nine shilling for the State, he is put in prison for a period unlimited by any law that I know, and determined only by the discretion of those who placed him
there, but if he should steal ninety times nine shillings from the State, he is soon permitted to go at large again.If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go; perchance it will wear smooth - certainly the machine will wear out. If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but if it is of such a nature that if requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.

“We want to be safe, but we need to be free.”

“Just because you have security concerns doesn’t mean you can infringe upon people’s Charter rights.”
