Keep in mind these measures are currently just a proposal to combat terror. It appears there is a push for closed door hearings of terror suspects with special judges and advocates whom have never even met their clients expected to act in their best interests. Additionally, there are also proposed "behaviour orders," limiting the personal freedoms of suspects.

This could seriously be misused. Anyone labelled a terrorist could be railroaded through the system without so much as a credible defense. The behavior orders are what is most troubling. I wonder what criteria will be in place to determine who exactly is enough of a risk to have their ability to travel taken away for example? Any thoughts?

this has been covered. I think if you check back you will find the orignal thread, it was a good discussion
