Bill C-51 hot topic at 2nd night of discussion across the Cariboo

After making their way to 100 Mile House on Monday, Stand Up for the North Committee arrived in Williams Lake to discuss the federal government’s proposed anti-terrorism Bill C-51 Tuesday evening.

Guest speaker Peter Ewart, says Canadians have the right to be consulted, the right to discuss and be informed of any changes that undermine their rights.

 

Ewart says due to the Bill’s broad language it could potentially allow Canadians engaged in protests, dissent, and even public discussions, such as last night’s to be investigated for “terrorism” related activity.

The meeting wrapped up following a lengthy discussion with the majority of the approximate 50 individuals in attendance endorsing a resolution put forward by George Atamanenko.

 

 

The discussion on Bill C-51 continues in Quesnel on April 1st beginning at 7pm  at the Arts and Civic Centre.

Ewart says the Committee will be looking at having further discussions in the region possibly in May.
