Online Spying Bill C-13 has already passed the House of Commons and will soon face a final vote in the Senate. But the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that large parts of C-13 are unconstitutional. If passed, the Bill will face legal challenges and waste millions of taxpayer dollars. The Senate claims to be the place where new laws can receive “sober second thought” – and if ever a bill needed a sober rethink, it’s this one.
Opposition to Bill C-13 is huge and growing; it’s faced criticism from across the board, including from the government’s own supporters.
