De-glorify terrorism says B’nai Brith
B’nai Brith Canada has called on the federal government to implement a recommendation in the just-released report of the Parliamentary committee that  reviews Canada’s anti-terrorism legislation.
Among the recommendations adopted by the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security is one that was initially proposed by B’nai Brith, to make the glorification of terrorism a criminal offence.
“We are pleased that the committee tasked with reviewing Canada’s anti-terrorism laws has incorporated one of our core recommendations in its final report – notably to make it a crime to glorify terrorism,” said Frank Dimant, B’nai Brith Canada’s Executive Vice President. “We call on the government to swiftly and decisively implement this recommendation, which would bring Canada in-line with its democratic allies in the fight against terrorism, such as Britain.”
The proposed amendment to the Criminal Code, if adopted, would close the loophole that now exists in the legislation that allows such actions to go unpunished.
“Such dangerous abuses of freedom of expression pose real threats to Canadians and undermine our nation’s strong democratic values,” Dimant said.
B’nai Brith Canada has been active in Canada since 1875 as the Jewish community’s foremost human rights agency.
