One of the more offensive examples of the Liberal penchant for triangulation came last year during the debate over the Conservative’s Bill-C-51. The so-called anti-terror law was a blatant power grab by the security state and portions of it will almost certainly be struck down by the Supreme Court. Nevertheless Trudeau and company dutifully voted for it while promising to fix its more troubling aspects once elected. Well the time for those changes is now and, to their credit, the government has opened up a round of public consultations – but don’t expect substantial changes. The hatred aimed at the Conservatives over the law hasn’t transferred to the Liberals still basking in the glow of a post-election honeymoon. Micheal Vonn with the BC Civil Liberties Association argues that without sustained pressure from the public the Libs are unlikely to reduce the power of CSIS, the RCMP and CSEC.
