The bill is expected to include provisions to allow "preventative arrests" and criminalize the "promotion of terror" -- measures law enforcement has indicated would help detain potential terrorists before a crime is actually committed.I hope you people see what's going on here because this is downright scary shit. Before a crime is commited. Pre-crime. Thought crime. Speech crime. Notice the double language here, it's before a crime is committed but allegedly you're committing a crime. Who defines what is terrorism? Is "eco-terrorism" terrorism? Hmm, who are the terrorists exactly? If I post The Offspring's 'Kill the president', am I now a terrorist? Is my blog a terrorist blog because I believe in extreme circumstances violence does have to be used to get out from under tyrannical rule? A belief I'm pretty sure the government shares does it not?
Asked to explain how the government will criminalize the promotion of terrorism, Blaney said the Criminal Code already contains provisions on "supporting hatred or violence."
"It is really criminal to incite terror, to support terrorism or to encourage to use violence to achieve your means," Blaney said.
Oh here's another one.
Existing law requires a fear that someone “will commit” a terrorism offence before a peace bond may be granted — a standard the government is looking to lower in the legislation.Like what in the great white fucking fuck people? I just.. ugh..
