Liberals to create 'super' national security watchdog as part of anti-terror law overhaul
June 20, 2017
The federal Liberal government is creating a new "super" civilian watchdog to review security and intelligence agencies across government and extending new powers to Canada's electronic spy agency.
The proposed changes were unveiled today as part of a massive legislative overhaul of Canada's anti-terrorism regime.
The new bill also checks off a number of election campaign promises to repeal what the platform called "problematic elements" of Bill C-51, including: Upgrading no-fly procedures, though officials conceded today that technological and other complexities, including matching information used by airlines, limit the extent of reforms.
Bill C-59 is currently in its first reading as of June 20, 2017.
