In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - April 20, 2015 - Part 1

CSIS director Michel Coulombe, RCMP deputy commissioner of federal policing Mike Cabana and CSE chief Greta Bossenmaier testify as the committee continues its pre-study of the federal government's proposed anti-terror legislation. Senators also hear from George Dolhai, deputy director of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, and his colleague Ursula Hendel, senior counsel and national terrorism prosecutions coordinator.
Measures in Bill C-51 include lowering the threshold for arrests, giving the Canadian Security Intelligence Service more powers to disrupt suspected terrorist threats, expanding the no-fly list, and making it easier to share security-related information among federal departments and agencies. (April 20, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-51 received royal assent on June 18.
