No, the bill is too vague on the issues of scope, oversight, and accountability

There is no doubt we are presently living in a dystopian world, but in western countries tend to see this through "rose colored glasses". I personally believe, we are in a global crisis. This emerging terrorism, is a symptom of these corporation wars for the control of foreign resources i.e., oil. These Middle Eastern countries have a feudal age mindset and are acting much like Europeans did a thousand years ago. Some radicals are, in fact envious of the progressive nature of democratic countries, and seek to destroy what they could never achieve through peace and prosperity.

No, the complete disregard which Bill C-51 displays for civil rights in the interest of averting 'terrorism' is an egregious example of self-fulfilling prophecy.

@4R4XY7Nfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

I do not support racial profiling and such (which is where many people would develop suspicion). As terrorism is increasing, I find it more important to support defence and preventive measures. The less fault we have is safest. Education is more important to support, and I am opposed to control at this chaotic time. Premature detaining would not stop extremist plans anyway, as I have noticed.

Yes, but ONLY if they suspect you of being associated with terrorism.

@97SL85NLiberalfrom Nova Scotia  answered…2wks

As long as they don't abuse their power, and provide contracts for searching areas and private propertu then yes, I support it.

@97RR33Dfrom Alberta  answered…3wks

It is for Canada’s safety which i respect. But this could lead to a lot of racism and discrimination

@97RHMKCfrom Alberta  answered…3wks

Yes, I believe they should be able to do their jobs in protecting us, but not if they will use their power to racially profile. There should be no racial profiling, but actual protection and legitimate acts of protection

i think the vill is good as long as the police dont have an insane amount of power, they should just have power to protect the public.

@96KHG4Vfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

@96J58QJfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

Yes, but the bill isn’t specific on the accountability of the officers

@96HP2BLfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

it depends; there should be a certain set of rules before it becomes too much of a police enforced state. boundaries must be clearly established and must be adjusted according to abnormal situations to avoid major damages.

@96HJ2SSfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

@96FBYZSfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

Somewhat. But I dont like the idea of them looking into our personal info

@969T38Qfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

no cause it will lead to more racial profiling, get better security and treat everyone the same

I do not have enough knowledge on the matter to decide either way

@964DJXBfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

No comment as I have not collected enough information upon this stance.

@95YXWKKfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

Yes, but they should have to fill out a report as to the reason behind their actions and another officer whom they have no connections with should have to verify these reasons with their own investigation.

@95YH955from Alberta  answered…2mos

@95YC823from British Columbia  answered…2mos

To what extent are they expanding? If it means my human rights can be violated because I'm a suspected "terrorist" then No.

@95YC47CConservativefrom Alberta  answered…2mos

local police is to keep like, the neighbourhood safe, and stop crimes, not really stop terrorism. i think stopping terrorism is more military's job

@95QQ5VCPeople’s Partyfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

i support it because sometimes they do need accsess to that type of information but then again its like there invading your privacy which is wrong

@95QPHP6from Ontario  answered…2mos

@95QDFM3New Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

I don't really know a lot about this Bill to answer this question

@95PJ28Kfrom Manitoba  answered…2mos

not until it is less vague about what it has for issues, scope, oversight, and accountability
