The Liberals’ new discussion paper on Bill C-51 reads like a defence of the bill it’s supposed to fix

The Liberal Government has recently released a document called Our Security, Our Rights: National Security Green Paper. The Green Paper was meant to kick off a series of public consultations by providing a list of helpful speaking points. The document opens with a stated goal to meet the Liberal Party election promises to amend the “problematic elements” of the Anti-Terrorism Act (Bill C-51).

Though after reading through its many sections, it seems apparent to me that the Green Paper was written to defend the act from its many criticisms. A ridiculous reversal in the light of Trudeau’s promises.
