The Conservatives are misusing CSIS and the RCMP to spy on groups and individuals exercising their democratic rights to oppose the Enbridge pipeline project. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/csis-rcmp-accused-of-spying-on-pipeline-opponents/article16726444/
I commend the good work of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) who filed two complaints this week against CSIS and the RCMP, alleging that “the two agencies illegally monitored and spied on the peaceful and democratic activities of community groups and First Nations opposed to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project.” http://bccla.org/stop-illegal-spying
New Democrats are standing up for your democratic rights in the House of Commons, and will keep fighting against the Northern Gateway pipeline project that British Columbians do not want.
Protecting the safety of Canadians means protecting democratic rights in this country, not spying on people that are fighting to protect our precious BC coasts.
