OTTAWA - A New Democrat MP says he will table a private member s bill at the earliest opportunity to repeal controversial anti-terrorism measures.
NDP public safety critic Randall Garrison says the legislation known as Bill C-51 severely compromised the privacy rights of Canadians.
The Conservative bill was ushered into law last year with the support of the Liberals, who have promised to change what they call problematic elements.
The Liberals are also poised to launch a wide-ranging review of national security measures.
Garrison chided the Trudeau government for lack of action.
He says the government should focus on counter-radicalization efforts and providing security agencies with enough resources to fight threats.
