Federal Grits plan to revamp anti-terrorism bill

(CP) - The Trudeau Liberals say they will soon fulfil a campaign promise to repeal what they call ``problematic elements'' of security legislation ushered in by the previous Conservative government.

They plan to introduce legislation to revamp the anti-terrorism bill known as C-51, which gave the Canadian Security Intelligence Service explicit powers to disrupt terrorist threats, instead of just gathering information about them.

The bill also broadened the government's no-fly list powers.

Amid persistent pressure to move quickly on changes, the Liberals opted to take their time and consulted with tens of thousands of people.
