Concerns over retroactive law akin to nitpicking, says Tory minister
Tony Clement defends complaint-erasing amendment to budget bill that the federal information commissioner called �perilous precedent�

Interesting how reactions differ. To its  perpetrator a deed  termed a 'perilous  precedent' is called 'akin to nit-picking'.

This instance of justifiable action rather than perilous precedent for future actions is at least being publicly debated.

Few Canadians are aware that "Bill C-51 violates Universal Declaration of Human Rights, OSCE finds"

For whatever reasons, that this is so has not been mentioned by being raised in Parliament nor does Googling find it
mentioned in media.

Is the finding of the OSCE rightfully being ignored as just so much nitpicking by Canadian politicians and Media?

You may believe so - I do not and have worked with others to act, as you may already know.

Will what follows be ignored? Reckon time will tell if another precedent is accepted.


Subject: Press Release: Senate and Governor General must refuse to sign Bill C-51

A legal analysis by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) has moved the Harper Government's anti-terrorism Bill C-51 onto the world stage.

The view of Canadians that Bill  C-51 is extreme, threatens privacy rights, individual freedoms and freedom of expression under the Charter is supported internationally. The media outlet Thinkpol reports that the OSCE has concluded:

"The Harper government�s controversial anti-terrorism bill violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Canada has ratified, according to legal analysis by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the world�s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization."

Though passed in the House of Commons, both the Senate and the Governor General have the power to save Canadians from this dictatorial legislation through performing their proper legislative roles as drawn to their attention more than two months ago by the P.C. Party through "An Open Letter Sent to Both the Governor General and the  Speaker of the Senate"

Two months ago the PC Party called upon the Speaker of the Senate and the Governor General of Canada to act to protect Canadians against abuse of power by the Harper government threatening Canadian values and freedoms under the pretence of national security. Progressive Canadians believe the Governor General and Senate must refuse to pass Bill C-51 into law to protect Canadian values and Canada's international reputation.
