The Security of Freedom: Essays on Canada's Anti-terrorism Bill

Front Cover
University of Toronto Press, 2001 - Law - 499 pages

The Government of Canada's proposed anti-terrorism legislation, Bill C-36, contemplates dramatic changes to our law, in areas as diverse as criminal procedure, international relations, immigration, individual privacy, law enforcement, and charitable giving. In this collection, Canada's leading scholars in the areas of law and public policy address the potential impact of these changes on the rights and freedoms that Canadians enjoy.

Based on papers presented at a conference organized by the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto in November 2001, the essays in this book provide a permanent record of the vital legal debate surrounding Bill C-36.
