There have been few bills in recent years in this country that have been so debated—and so vilified—as C-51, an ambitious law passed during the last Parliament by the former governing Conservatives to change how national security is protected in Canada. The bill became law thanks to the majority Harper government and despite the opposition by the NDP. The Liberals supported it as well, albeit with a promise to review it should it gain power. Now that the Trudeau-led party has formed a government, it is having another look at the law’s provisions and consulting with various interested interlocutors. It is still uncertain when those consultations and deliberations will result in a new national security law.
