Announcing False Security: The Radicalization of Canadian Anti-terrorism

Irwin Law is proud to publish False Security: The Radicalization of Canadian Anti-terrorism this September. The book provides a detailed account of the failings of Bill C-51 and explains how the laws miss the mark in striking the delicate balance between privacy and security. Bill C-51 tackles anti-terrorism with a hard-line approach: the laws give CSIS more powers and allow the government to crack down on the promotion of terrorism. But these major changes ignore recommendations on how to avoid future threats, as well as the difficult lessons Canada has learned about terrorism throughout history.

Authors Craig Forcese and Kent Roach look at the issue of terrorism through many lenses. While providing context through a detailed history of Canada’s responses to terrorism, the book also touches on the sociological and legal implications, presenting a cohesive and thorough look at today’s terrorism threat.
