Ep 91 May the Coming Into Force Be With You

Stephanie and Craig are back, albeit jet-lagged. We jump into a few matters we’ve been following. First, some new information on security background checks for judges — a follow up on our earlier discussion on the security clearance process. Second, a look at discussions over the last few days about charging Daesh fighters with crimes against humanity and war crimes. Third, we loop back to bill C-59 to update listeners on developments. To this end, we walk through the amendments proposed by the senate. And then, being optimists, we talk about what happens when (not if!) the bill receives royal assent: how will the “coming into force” process work? Hopefully, by next week, this will be the final remaining issue for this bill, and we can move on to other things!
