Bill C51 | If it is flawed, how can anyone support it

I do not understand our Opposition Parties anymore.  If Bill C51 has serious errors, such as the placing of our freedoms at risk, how can they support it?  Sure, some parts may indeed be needed, but if it can destroy our basic rights, fail to protect our freedom of thought, of privacy, of speech, how can they justify supporting it, simply because it does have some protection for our physical safety?

[blockquote cite=””]Harper’s proposed law is riddled with problems: it would give unprecedented power to spy agencies to surveil ordinary Canadians, extend the RCMP’s powers to detain people who have committed no crime, and criminalize certain kinds of speech.[3] Even the Globe & Mail, who endorsed Harper at the last election, has said that the law would create a “secret police” in Canada and must be blocked.[4][/blockquote]
If there is NO real oversight, no checks in place, how can any party support it?

Are they really that afraid of the Conservative Attack Ads, or so Unsure of how to explain their own position?

Do they even have a position on how to protect us?

What we really need is to start running candidates who have some guts, who aren’t afraid of Stephen Harper and his bully tactics. Makes me wonder if any of our current crop of Leaders have that capability.

Can Tom Mulcair, Justin Trudeau, or Elizabeth May stand up to the bully boy, Stephen Harper?
