Faculty member Kent Roach and Professor Craig Forcese from the University of Ottawa have written and published a new book on the wave of national security laws enacted under the Conservative Canadian government. As Professor Roach from the University of Toronto and Professor Forcese have widely stated, these new laws, ‘The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2015,’ or Bill C-51, are not only unconstitutional and unlikely to make Canadians safer, but they have also been rashly enacted, giving the state new powers that greatly reduce personal privacy protections and freedom of speech, among other Charter protections.
