This new Canadian bill ought to wreck their democracy pretty darn well.
It will start with taking out basic legal rights, rights to legal representation, right to habeus corpus, right to a warrant from a judge based upon probable cause, right to present evidence in your own defense, right to freedom of seizure of your property, right to be free of inhuman and degrading treatment such as torture, right to freedom of speech and freedom of the Press to question government, freedom of dissent, freedom from arbitrary arrest without having to show cause. All these rights will be overridden by “national security” and justified as necessary to ‘protect’ Canada.

Update: 3.23.15: Canada’s Spies Go on The Offense.
Do you really want to give Canadian spy agencies these reported new powers to harm others under C-51?
“But the latest top-secret documents released to CBC News and The Intercept illustrate the development of a large stockpile of Canadian cyber-spy capabilities that go beyond hacking for intelligence, including:
destroying infrastructure, which could include electricity, transportation or banking systems;
creating unrest by using false-flags — ie. making a target think another country conducted the operation;
disrupting online traffic by such techniques as deleting emails, freezing internet connections, blocking websites and redirecting wire money transfers.”
A new article in Rabble.ca points to more of an Cointelpro program to continue in Canada under the approval of disruption techniques under the new C-51 bill: (5.17.15)
“”Eyes-on-surveillance” (essentially organized stalking), break-ins, demagnetization of bank cards, vandalism, smear campaigns, installing rootkits and vicious malware on computers, overwhelming a vehicle’s electronics to cause malfunction and injecting metallic noise onto a home’s powerlines resulting in sleep deprivation are all tactics used in disruption. The end game in disruption is a “sting.” Hence agent provocateurs are brought in to try to dupe the target into committing a crime or acting “dangerous.”
