Bill C -51

Cranbrook’s Day of Action Against Bill C­51 will take place at noon on Saturday, March 14th on 2nd Street North between Kootenay Street and Cranbrook Street. 

From the Tyee:

Six Things Protesters Need to Know about Bill C-51
Preventative arrest? Secret police? Rights lawyers break down anti-terrorism law.

1. Bill C-51 drastically expands the definition of 'security.'
When you think of being secure, you likely think of being safe from physical danger. But Bill C-51 defines security as not only safeguarding public safety, but also preventing interference with various aspects of public life or "the economic or financial stability of Canada." With this definition, a separatist demonstration in Quebec that fails to get a proper permit, a peaceful logging blockade by First Nations, or environmentalists obstructing a pipeline route could all be seen as threats to national security.
