Concerns about Bill C-51 discussed in Shawnigan Lake
Bill C-51, the Harper government’s controversial anti-terrorism legislation, is up for a clause-by-clause review by a House of Commons Committee this week.
It was the focus of a discussion on Sunday in Shawnigan Lake.
Green Party leader Elizabath May joined Cowichan-Malahat-Langford Green Party candidate Fran Hunt-Jinnouchi for a town hall on Bill C-51.
Hunt-Jinnouchi says Shawnigan Lake residents have some specific concerns.
The government has indicated that they’re going to make four amendments, including spelling out that public protests are not terrorist acts.
But Hunt-Jinnouchi says May also outlined numerous other concerns with Bill C-51.
Hunt-Jinnouchi says May highlighted more than 60 amendments she wants to see made to the legislation.
The NDP and the Liberals are also putting forward their own amendments.
