New CSIS powers worrisome
Congratulations to the Federal members of Parliament who voted for C-51, a bill that gives the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) extraordinary new powers including the power to break the law and violate the Constitution.
The legislation allows the allpowerful and secretive spy agency to breach the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as long as a judge approves.
Lives could be completely destroyed with one signature. Also, there will be no trial, no defense, no possibility of confronting the accusers and no recourse. The suspects will be assumed guilty and will be treated like garbage.
Giving up our freedoms does not make us any safer. It just makes us less free. David Boudreau Cheticamp
