Trudeau Government Approves Legislation Weakening Canada’s Anti-Terror Laws


Originally, the anti-terror laws had allowed securities to act swiftly in order to disrupt imminent terror threats. But now, they will need to stop and get a warrant first in many cases, and the legislation subjects those warrants to a charter challenge ahead of time - meaning valuable time to stop a plot could be lost. In an effort to stop Canada's anti-terror laws from being weakened, the Conservatives offered multiple amendments to the legislation. The Trudeau government rejected all of those amendments.
