There's this (all emphasis tail-waggingly added):
Yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he would accept what he called a "compromise" in a report by a Liberal-dominated Senate committee.
The committee recommended a three-year extension of the two measures. But it also urged that an annual report on the use of the measures include an explanation as to whether the provisions remain warranted.
"I prefer something to nothing," Harper said outside the Commons. "It's important to have anti-terrorism provisions that are effective."
And then there's this:
The swoop and snatch "preventative arrest," which requires the detainee to make a next-day appearance before a judge to validate the apprehension, will disappear along with "investigative hearings" that compel a reluctant witness to spill the beans in a private court.
Neither measure has yet been deployed against suspects.
In other news, this elephant repellent is absolutely amazing. You don't see any elephants around here, do you?
