Prime Minister Harper is manipulating last week’s tragic killings to further erode precious Canadian democratic freedoms.
The horrific shooting of a young Canadian reservist standing guard at the National War Memorial appears to have been committed by a lone shooter, suffering from mental illness and substance abuse problems, as well as being homeless and angry at Canadian foreign policy.
Instead of a calm and measured approach after gaining all the facts, the Prime Minister has announced that he will fast-track new anti-terrorism laws that will give yet more draconian powers to police forces and spy agencies – including expanding their power of so-called “preventive” arrest.
If you want to stop Harper from creating a national “thought police,” please write to your local media. We need to let people know what is going on!
