Liberals accused of playing politics with national security as they consult on changes to Bill C-51

The government will live up to its commitments to protect charter rights and offer appeals to people on no-fly lists as a 'minimum,' says a spokesperson for the public safety minister.

Conservative public safety critic Erin O'Toole (right) says the Liberal government is delaying changes to Bill C-51 because it has realized the benefit of the legislation, though is wary of upsetting opponents. The Liberals, however, argue that Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale (left) is "steadily advancing" election commitments on national security.
