Liberties, taken

In his eloquent article on the “anti-terror” bill, Campbell Clark writes, “CSIS is not allowed to target lawful dissent” (Flawed Anti-Terror Bill Deserves Serious Scrutiny – Feb. 16).

I would not be too sure of that. After all, the Canada Revenue Agency has done a terrific job of targeting public interest advocacy groups and charities that dare express an opinion on climate change or the environment.

There is no cause for complacency in this case: This bill, if passed, would take us well on the way to a police state.
