This document contains our proposed amendment to Bill C-51, Antiterrorism Act 2015. In it, we report government statements supporting each element of the bill. We then summarize our concerns with that element. Finally, we suggest amendments designed to mute our chief concerns that would, at the same time, satisfy government objectives. In other words, we try to square liberty with security, and propose language that will minimize "second order" impacts from current provisions that we believe could undermine security.
