Part of Anti-terrorism Act violates charter: judge

CBC News
The first person charged under the federal Anti-terrorism Act in Canada won a legal victory on Tuesday when an Ontario judge struck down a provision because he says it violates charter rights.

What this nation needs is fewer lawyers disguising themselves as politicians and a reduction of perhaps as much as 3/5 of the present legislative "structure" of government. If criminal law is inadequate, that law can be reviewed and ammended as opposed to passing legislation out of panic or in response to political pressure (in the form of economic pressure) from the United States or from anyone else for that matter.
