The Cost of Bill C-51

The Vancouver Province ran an interesting letter to the editor by Elly Stornebrink of North Vancouver about the costs of Bill C-51:

"Did the federal government already decide to pass Bill C-51, which erodes our freedoms and rights? I ask because the new budget says that almost $300 million will be invested “in intelligence and law enforcement agencies for counter-terrorism resources” as well as more than $10 million “to double the security intelligence review committee’s budget. I’m suspicious. Am I the only one?"

Aside from the cost of losing civil liberty, this is the most fiscally irresponsible tax and spend act in the history of our nation. Elizabeth May with the Green Party along with the New Democrats and the Bloc Quebecquois are the only ones opposing the illegal bill that throws away the Charter of Rights. Stephen Harper's Police State and Justine Trudeau's Clown State are the ones defiantly supporting the illegal bill and the obscene misappropriation of tax dollars to spy on people not for criminal activity but for their political affiliation. Buyer Beware.


  1. No, you're not the only one. Our elected masters have already decided what they want to do, and are planning on doing it one way or the other. The idea that they serve the people is only lip service to them, what they truly serve is themselves and the idea that because we have favored them with our votes they are somehow special. And all the while they steal our money and our liberty, they have a prestigious, well paid job with a fat pension they have voted themselves that most can never hope to have. Nice work if you can get it. We might well be better off if we capped salaries for any government minister or elected representative at say, $40K/year. Regardless of how we do it, if we take the money out of it (much like the drug war) things will change.

  2. Trudeau's support or oppostion to C-51 would make zero difference with a Conservative majority. His support will prevent The Conservatives from dragging him into a 'law and order' 'you're with us or against us' platform come next election. The REAL stupidity lies with those who can't see or understand this. EXACTLY what the Con's count on - an incredibly stupid Canadian electorate led around by their noses by an incompetent and cowardly Canadian mainstream media.
