Campaign against Bill C-51 in Canada, 2015

We were able to plray a part in the campaign against Bill C-51 in Canada.  Although the bill was passed, it was one of the factors that made the Conservative Party of Canada, and its leader Stephen Harper, lose the 2015 federal elections in Canada.

This purported 'anti-terrorism' bill will end up disenfranchinsing young people and result in more radicalization.  Innocents will be dragged in and over-funded and over-zealous agencies will create criminals out of loyal Canadian citizens.  Due process never compromises security:

  • Due process for the no-fly list. Canada is a vast country that requires air travel. An innocent person's career or business can be ruined and it has happened in the U.S.  Learn from the mistakes south of the border. When necessary, send the person a letter and have him/her show up at an RCMP centre for further processing.
  • Due process for holding someone without charge for more than 24 hours.  Our police forces and  the RCMP are quite competent in this regard and have not asked for additional days.
  • Due process for knocks on doors.  Local police and the RCMP have the required training and oversight to deal with the public.  CSIS will only attempt to 'recruit' innocents by knocking on doors.

Canada is a unique country where Muslims are a successful and integrated part of society, and the general population get along very well with Muslims.

Stop the Conservative government from destroying the Canada we are all proud to call our home.
