Bill C-36: A Matter of Rights

The criticism of Bill C-36 has largely centred on the fact that it gives the government far-reaching new powers to regulate businesses and encroaches on traditional civil liberties.

It's estimated as many as 200 new inspectors will be hired to carry out provisions of the bill -- which will allow them to enter a business and seize property without a warrant.

The bill also gives inspectors the right to not only seize products, but the vehicles used to transport them. They can also examine any documents they want to.

In addition, the legislation gives the government the right to disclose personal and business information to foreign governments without the consent of the parties involved.'
