If Re-Elected The Conservatives Will Pass Law To Restrict Canadians From Travel To ' Hot Spots' ... Big Brother is alive and well in the brain of Stephen Harper !!
Conservative Leader Stephen Harper said today if re-elected he will introduce legislation that will make it a criminal offence for Canadians to travel to parts of the world under the control of extremist groups.
"A re-elected Conservative government will designate travel to places that are ground zero for terrorist activity a criminal offence," Harper said Sunday during a campaign stop in Ottawa.
"Those who go will face the full power of the law."
The proposed law would apply to certain "declared areas" Harper said, though he did not name any specific locations.
"We are talking about the most dangerous places on earth, where governance is nonexistent and violence is widespread and brutal."
He indicated exceptions might be made for some individuals — such as aid workers, diplomats and journalists — but maintained there are "few legitimate reasons" to travel to such parts of the world
So forget about any holiday vacation travel to Cuba ...or who knows where. Any Left leaning nation would probably be on Harper's list.
