Bill C-51: The Consequences for Civil Liberties

See video
The Halifax Civil Liberties Working Group, a new organization dedicated to public education and action around questions of free-speech, privacy and the abuse of authority, is pleased to host a public meeting about the implications and consequences of Bill C-51, the new Harper Government "Anti-Terrorism Act."
Saturday, April 25, 2015
Halifax Central Library, room 301
Free and open to the public.
The panel of speakers is:
* Judy Haiven – Associate Professor, Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary’s University
* Howard Epstein – former Nova Scotia MLA and law professor
* El Jones – Halifax’s poet laureate, university lecturer and prisoners’ rights activist.
This event is meant to offer an opportunity to discuss the bill and also to build interest in developing a robust opposition to it and other infringements on civil liberties in Halifax. The discussion will focus on how citizens can be empowered to respond. 
The Halifax Civil Liberties Working Group is looking for new members to help us build an organization.
