I have prepared a short 15 min primer on the more controversial aspects of C-51, the Canadian governments proposed "anti-terror" law. If you have 15 minutes to figure this bill out, I hope this helps. For those who want more details, I will produce a more detailed version next week.
My discussion relates to the bill as it exists at 2d reading in the House of Commons, Feb 18, 2015.
(In a two spots, I misspoke and say C-59. I am always referring to to C-51.)
