Canadian Government Moves to Outlaw Masks at DemosSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Mon, 05/07/2012 - 12:17
It may soon be a crime to wear a mask in Canada. The Harper government supports a bill proposed by Conservative backbencher Blake Richards that would slam protesters in prison for five years if they wear a mask during a demonstration.
The legislation is supported by the Conservative majority and will likely become law.
Richards said the bill will give the police more power to prevent property damage.
