Canadian arms show cancelled

This video from Canada says about itself:

26 April 2013

The Anti-terrorism Act passed just after the Sept. 11th attacks has been revived under Bill S-7 with some extremely troubling provisions which threaten the basic fundamental civil liberties of every Canadian citizen. The conservatives have used the recent “foiled terror plot” as an excuse to pass this draconian bill. In what is eerily similar to the National Defense Authorization Act in the United States bill S-7 now gives the Canadian authorities the ability to have investigative hearings and preventive detentions. Under this bill anyone and everyone can now be a suspect and detained without charges or due process.

Another video which used to be on the Internet used to say about itself:

Canadian Anti-Terrorism Act has raised concern among human rights activists that it could lead to severe violations of suspected and accused “terrorists”, and to the targeting and profiling of Muslims and Arabs in Canada.

After a recent victory against the arms trade in Australia, another success in Canada.

From the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade in Canada

“Secure Canada 2008” has been CANCELLED!

Organizers of this arms exhibition, that was scheduled for Sept.30-Oct.1 at an Ottawa municipal facility (Lansdowne Park), have announced its cancellation!

However, the struggle continues!  

Join us in ensuring that “Secure Canada” never returns, and in preventing an even bigger arms bazaar — “CANSEC” — whose organizers are negotiating with the City to book Lansdowne for May 2009. The booking of ALL such shows goes against an Ottawa City Council ban passed in 1989 due to efforts by COAT!
