Bill C-51 too secretive

I encourage Canadians to learn more about how we can work together to stop “secret police” Bill C-51 at: StopC51.ca., says letter writer.

To the Editor,

The Harper Conservative government has not been held accountable for dozens of breaches of Canadian law. Bill C-51 will ensure that we will no longer be informed about the outrages they will continue to commit in our name.

Our country is in shambles. Our children cannot afford an education. Our young cannot find jobs. Our seniors wait for months and months and years for decent health care. Our international reputation has been destroyed. We must stop Bill C-51.

We have apparently lost the power to hold these criminals to task. We cannot give them the ability to perpetrate further crimes in secret.

James Lunney has already been the incredible shrinking man in terms of standing up for us. We must stand up for ourselves…finally.

I encourage Canadians to learn more about how we can work together to stop “secret police” Bill C-51 at: StopC51.ca.
