In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Anti-terrorism – May 14, 2012

The committee completed clause-by-clause consideration of the government’s anti-terrorism legislation (S-7) that would re-enact controversial measures that lapsed in 2007.

The measures include the ability for police to arrest terror suspects before a crime has been committed and allow judges to impose conditions upon a suspect’s release. The legislation would also create new offences for leaving or attempting to leave Canada to commit terrorism offences.

Catherine Kane and Doug Breithaupt from the Department of Justice were on hand to answer questions about technical aspects of the bill.
