Anti-Terrorism Act

The Parliament of Canada passed Bill C-36, the Anti-terrorism Act, on December 18, 2001. As part of that legislation, section 83.31 was added to the Criminal Code. That section requires the Attorney General and the Minister responsible for policing in every province to publish or otherwise make available to the public an annual report for the previous year on the operation of sections 83.28 (investigative hearing), 83.29 (preventive arrest) and 83.3 (recognizance with condition) of the Criminal Code.

After having made inquiries, we are not aware of any use being made of these provisions in Manitoba during 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 or 2006.
