Our very own Micheal Vonn, BCCLA Policy Director, will be speaking at a town hall hosted by MP Joyce Murray on national security and civil liberties. More information:
“Due to the strong local reaction to the previous Government’s Bill C-51, and her own work on these issues in her 2014 Bill C-622, MP Joyce Murray is hosting an MP Town Hall with some of Canada’s top experts on National Security and Civil Liberties .
The Canadian Government has a dual responsibility when it comes to national security: to keep Canadians safe at home and abroad; and to preserve and protect the rights and freedoms which shape our open, inclusive, and democratic country. This Town Hall is a chance to learn more about Canada’s privacy and security provisions, and have your say on how you think the government should strike the right balance.
Andre Geromylatos, Professor of History at SFU, and member of the Canadian Advisory Council on National Security
Kent Roach, Law Professor at University of Toronto and an expert in Anti-Terrorism Law
Micheal Vonn, Policy Director at the BC Civil Liberties Association
Reg Whitaker, Adjunct Professor in Political Science from the University of Victoria and specialist in Canadian Security
