In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - March 23, 2015

Senators continue their hearings on Bill C-44, which would amend the CSIS Act and the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act. Among the proposed measures is the clarification of CSIS' authority to investigate and track suspected terrorists outside of Canada. The bill also contains technical amendments that would speed up the implementation of provisions that received royal assent last June, allowing the government to revoke the Canadian citizenship of dual citizens convicted of terrorism, high treason, treason or spying offences.
Testifying are Christian Leuprecht (associate professor of political science, Royal Military College of Canada); Garth Davies (associate professor of criminology, Simon Fraser University); Paul Copeland (human rights lawyer) and Craig Forcese (associate professor in the University of Ottawa's law faculty).
The committee conducts its clause-by-clause consideration of the bill after hearing from the witnesses. (March 23, 2015)
