Since our Kill the Bill event is fast approaching (November 4th!), I thought it would be helpful to round up some more background information.
To start with -- the bill itself, the Government Press Release, and the Department of Justice Backgrounder.
And a list of articles:
CBC, Sept 21, 2011 "What’s in the Tory crime bill -- and what’s not"
CBC: Sept 21, 2011 "9 key elements of the crime bill"
Canadian Civil Liberties Association "Bill C-10, the Omnibus crime bill: Unwise, unjust, unconstitutional"
Canadian Bar Association, Oct 17, 2011 "CBA offers critique of Bill C-10 to Parliamentary committee"
National Post, Oct 19, 2011 "The Tories tough-on-crime agenda is intellectually bankrupt"
