About this Project

This blog comments on Canadian (and occasionally comparative) national security law to update my National Security Law textbook and now also my 2015 book, False Security: The Radicalization of Anti-terrorism, co-authored with Kent Roach.

Please also see www.antiterrorlaw.ca for Bill C-51-related analyses by Craig Forcese and Kent Roach.

For narrated lectures on various topics in national security law, please visit my 2017 "national security nutshell" series, available through iTunes.

 

For a continuing conversation on Canadian national security law and policy, please join Stephanie Carvin and me at A Podcast Called INTREPID.

 

Please also visit my archive of "secret law" in the security area.

Bill C-59 Flowcharts: CSIS dataset approval processes

Again, for my own use, to make sure I understand how the system will work, I have prepared a "decision-tree" on the proposed CSIS acquisition and retention of "datasets" -- that is, electronic archives of information that is not itself strictly necessary for a threat investigation under s.12.

Again, caveat emptor, as I do not claim this is perfect!  But if of use to others, I share. (If it does not open when you click on the thumbnail, if may be downloaded here.)
