In 1984, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) was created to provide an intelligence gathering service separate from the RCMP. The RCMP’s illegal and embarrassing efforts to infiltrate the FLQ in Quebec, such as the barn-burning incident, had led the McDonald Commission to recommend that intelligence-gathering and policing be separated. It was also viewed as ...

We cannot allow these horrific crimes to go unanswered. However, we must make sure whatever we do does not make matters worse. C-51 won’t make Canadians safer. We should start addressing underlying issues and provide long term solutions to the terrorism problem. To help prevent terrorism, the focus must be on peaceful assistance to local ...

Lyme Disease The Act Respecting a Federal Framework on Lyme Disease became law on December 16, 2014. This was my private member’s bill, C-442, first tabled in June 2012. It is one of fewer than 2% of private member’s bills to become law. Hundreds of Lyme disease patients across Canada worked very hard to bring ...

The new bill, C-51, is described by the government as an anti-terrorism act. Having studied it, I cannot agree that it is primarily addressing the threat of terrorism. Acts of terrorism are a threat. They are criminal acts of horrific cruelty and sadism. Luring of disenfranchised, disenchanted, alienated Canadians into their barbaric crusade must be ...

By the time you receive this newsletter, Bill C-51, the so-called “Anti-Terrorism Act,” will likely have become law. It is my hope, and the hope of many more, that the bill is subjected to meaningful amendments. When I first spoke out about this legislation, I was almost alone. Now concerns are growing and many prominent ...

Over $12 billion has been spent by the federal government on increased security since 9-11. The question of whether that was the best way to protect ourselves needs to be asked.  In the wake of the murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo on October 22, 2014, we need to ask what could have been done to ...

The rise of ISIS has been raised in my Town Halls ever since fall 2014. There is no doubt that the brutal and sadistic acts of violence perpetrated by this group disturb and outrage us all. While focusing on ISIS, suddenly in January, it was Al-Qaeda behind the attacks in Paris. Meanwhile, Boko Haram continues ...

Mr. Speaker, today, March 31, is the deadline for those nations that are ready to do so to table climate commitments with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in advance of COP 21. Yesterday in question period the minister confirmed that Canada was not ready and would miss this deadline. The excuse that was ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise on adjournment proceedings to pursue a question I asked the Prime Minister on February 18. The response came from the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. The response was not responsive. On February 18, having been opposing Bill C-51 in this place since February 2, I welcomed with ...
