This law is unnecessary.
Statistically, it’s unlikely one’s physical safety would ever be directly affected by terrorism within this beautiful country. We are a good, ethical nation that has grown to be one of the most peaceful and respectable nations in the world. We gained our independence rather peacefully; aside for a few transgressions; and we carried that aura of correct behavior into today.
We are an honorable nation that only responds with military force when it is our moral obligation to do so.
We’re not the United States, post 9-11. We’re a great nation that has preserved Canadian values throughout a rather valueless and dark time experienced by much of the rest of the world.
That peaceful ride was truly thanks to the Conservative Party of Canada’s excellent governing during a time when everyone was scared. This is most especially true in regard to the appropriate development and deployments of our military; involved in operations we had a moral responsibility to be a part of.
We’re not a scared nation anymore, though. We have a significant percentage of our generation trained to defend our country; and a hell of a lot more of us ready and willing should the situation ever present itself.
Canada has built one of the greatest modern military in the world.
Our team is among the best.
We don’t need this bill to protect our country. We’re orders of magnitude safer than we were before.
Sure.. a few bad guys may occasionally slip into our bubble; influenced by one of the terrorism countries.
It may seem scary.
But it’s statistically unlikely.
The one irrefutable fact that this administration cannot fathom acknowledging is the following thing:
The bill is too vague.
Our generation grew up with Jon Stewart.
We’re not accepting any of this nouveau-homage to the Patriot Act nonsense.
NOTE: Blues and Reds (both) supported Bill C-51
