Anti-Terror and Security Policy in Canada

Recent stories in the media have focused attention on troubling events such as ISIS attacks, Charlie Hebdo in Paris, and the attack on Parliament in Ottawa. We wanted to apply a policy lens to such controversial events, and asked our guests to offer analysis on Bill C-51. Are there aspects that require further review and amendment? How can the government achieve a proper balance between privacy and national security? Are there gaps in existing policy that necessitate Bill C-51? What the impact of Bill C-51 would have on people in the day-to-day?

To answer and discuss these questions, we are joined by the following experts:

  • Ron Atkey, Special Advocate on Security Certificate Hearings before the Federal Court
  • Michael Geist, Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa and Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law
  • Nader Hasan, Adjunct Professor with the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto, Lawyer who practices Criminal Defense and Constitutional Law
  • Christian Leuprecht, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science and Economics at the Royal Military College of Canada
