The Iranian Canadian Congress joins 40 leading civil society organizations and individuals urging for changes to the government's national security bill (C-59) to protect privacy and freedoms. On September 19, 2017 these civil society organizations issued a joint letter to the Hon. Minister Ralph Goodale, the Hon. Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, and the Hon. Minister Ahmed Hussen that lays out overarching concerns with Bill C-59, An Act respecting national security matters.

Some of the leading organizations signing the joint letter are the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association and the Amnesty International Canada. 

You can find an outline of the concerns shared in this join letter here on the website of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.

The letter, which sets out these and other issues in greater detail, can be found here in English and here in French.
