In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Anti-terrorism – March 26, 2012


Justice Minister Rob Nicholson appeared to discuss anti-terrorism legislation that would re-enact two controversial measures that lapsed in 2007. Bill S-7 proposes to bring back recognizance with conditions and investigative hearings measures. These measures allow police to arrest someone suspected of terrorism even before a crime has been committed, and would also allow judges to compel suspects to testify in secret.

The minister spoke about the importance of the act in detecting and preventing terrorist activities. Department of Justice counsel Glenn Gilmour elaborated on technical aspects of the legislation. The proposed bill would include amendments to the existing Criminal Code, the Canada Evidence Act, and the Security of Information Act.
