AVAILABLE EXPERT – Bill C-51 receiving royal assent

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Queen’s University terrorism and security expert Christian Leuprecht is available to comment on Bill C-51 which will receive royal sssent tomorrow. The controversial bill was introduced at the end of January and sets out to extend Canada’s anti-terror laws.

“Bill C-51 adapts Canada’s national security instruments to a rapidly evolving threat environment,” says Dr. Leuprecht. “That threat environment has seen a proliferation of radical groups and individuals committed to violent extremism as a means to promote ideologies and worldviews that are fundamentally at odds with Canadian values and our democratic way of life. C-51 is one in a series of measures that bolster Canada’s capacity to deter those intent on harming us, and the democratic principles Canadians espouse.”
