Keeping up with the Canada-wide protests of Bill C-51? You've come to the right place. Read on for your list of "must reads" on Bill C-51, petitions, and for a curated Twitter feed rounding up all the action from the protests on Saturday.

Bill C-51 will give CSIS new powers to disrupt activities that potentially "threaten the government", and give the government of Canada new powers of surveillance. Many see it as another step toward silencing all forms of dissent in Canada. This weekend, there are protests scheduled across Canada to display opposition to Bill C-51. Click here to see a full list of emerging protests from our friends at LeadNow.ca
