I am writing concerning Bill C-51, the bill to expand spying within Canada by CSIS. The bill is reckless as it will expand CSIS powers with little oversight, giving the spies free range. The bill is a
dangerous, potential violation of the Charter, allowing the possibility of
censorship of free expression online. The bill will be ineffective in its goal of
protecting us from terrorist activity,
acting instead as dragnet surveillance with information sharing, including
financial, health, political and religious preferences by at least 17 agencies; even Stephen Harper has admitted this approach is ineffective. The government is trying to ram the bill through with
minimal discussion, but even so,
opposition in the public domain has increased from 17% at introduction to over 50% now. The government should withdraw C-51 and start again.
