Canada Moves to ‘Modernize’ its Anti-Terrorism Legislation

With the return of Canada’s Parliament later this month, one of the security issues sure to attract attention is Bill C-59.

It aims to modernize and clarify Canadian national security and intelligence operations. This includes how the country collects and retains metadata, better coordination for oversight and review of counter-terrorism investigations.

    No doubt the emphasis will shift to shutting down the phantom “right wing extremist” groups that the liberals and CSIS are now focused on..Expect new powers to monitor and throw conservatives in jail for wrong-think posts on facebook or twitter and such…

    • Watch as Canada becomes the new headquarters for X Islamist group. They may even get public funding.

    Breaking news! Feminist Trudeau just announced at a news conference in Newfoundland, that all his troubles are because of Harper. Gee, we have never heard that before. According to little Justin, Harper left him quite a mess. Like a balanced budget I guess.

    This will mean preparing a bushel of endorsed cheques with the name and the amount left blank.

    Good News from the media. Feminist Trudeau’s vacation trip to that private island, only cost $215,000.00 I wonder how it cost for Trudeau’s summer homosexual parade tour.

    From the PM who thinks terrorists shouldn’t be stripped of their dual-citizenship, doesn’t think there is such a thing as a barbaric cultural practice, and who thinks it is a silly question when asked if there is any situation he can imagine that would make him go to war, this is not surprising.
