: Discussion on the New Anti-Terrorism Legislation—Bills C-44 and C-51 and their consequences for Canadians

Winston Heights Mountview Community Association, 520 - 27 Avenue NE, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, 520 - 27 Avenue NE
Opposition is mounting across Canada to Bill C-51, Anti-terrorism Act 2015. The deep concern of Canadians centres on the fact that the Act casts a broad net to criminalize dissent and anyone who opposes the policies of the Harper government, and turn CSIS into a full-scale secret police force with broad powers to commit illegal acts.
