Forum topic

Connection between C-51 and Aboriginal and labour rights

I have not seen anyone yet make the connection between C-51 and labour rights or Aboriginal rights (although some about environmentalists).

Bill C-51 redefines anyone who represents a threat to the economy, the political, and the diplomatic agenda of the government as a terrorist unless they are participating entirely within the law. The test of violence or threat of violence is completely missing from the Bill. In some cases even the issue of intent is missing.

Those who break the law in the most minor of ways, while posing a threat to the government agenda, face very dire consequences. "Law abiding" Canadians are told that they are safe as there is a provision that says legal protest is exempt. But there is no proportion to this.
