Protesters denounce Bill C-3 legislation

A group of more than 100 protesters took to the streets of Liberal leader Stéphane Dion's riding in St. Laurent yesterday - complete with marching band - asking him to oppose Bill C-3, the recently introduced security-certificate legislation. The proposed legislation "responds to none of the core concerns" raised in a public campaign, said organizers with the Coalition Justice Adil Charkaoui. The marchers delivered an open letter to Dion, signed by 45 groups, laying out a broad array of criticisms of the approach adopted by the minority Conservative government.
