An Ontario judge ruled today that part of the definition of “terrorism” found in the Anti-Terrorism Act violates charter rights. Namely the section on “motivation”.
To which Mark Holland, member of the House of Commons standing committee on public safety and national security responded: “Motivation is a very difficult thing for us because it is difficult for us to understand why someone would want to do us harm.”
