Recently I attended a citizen’s protest in Owen Sound against the passing of Bill C- 51, “An Act to enact the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act and the Secure Air Travel Act, to amend the Criminal Code, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act, and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and to make related and consequential amendments to other Acts.” as detailed by the House of Commons.
There are slow and insidious changes happening in Canadian law that are deeply disturbing; the erosion of our civil liberties. Some changes seem to happen quickly like a coup d'état. Other changes happen gradually like a continuous stream of water eroding a rock. In this case, C-51’s erosion of our democratic rights and freedoms.
