Canada announced a new anti-terror law that will allow anyone suspected of being involved in a terror plot to be detained without charge for up to seven days.
The law announced Friday will also make it a crime for people to call for a terrorist attack, even if they don’t make a specific threat, and empower Canada’s spy agency to thwart attacks directly in a significant expansion of their powers.
Work on the law began in October after a gunman killed a soldier at Canada’s national war memorial and then stormed Parliament. The attack in Ottawa came two days after a man, said to be inspired by the Islamic State group, ran over two soldiers in a parking lot in Quebec, killing one and injuring the other before being shot to death.
The new law still has to be passed in Parliament but Harper’s Conservative government has a majority of the seats so passage is all but ensured. Read more here..

BM:  The thing that rile me the most is the sanctimonious and self righteous attitudes of many western countries asking the more less "powerful" countries like Malaysia to take it easy on what they perceived as a draconian piece of legislation like the Sedition Act.
In Malaysia it appears that we have to be nice and talk to terrorist like Anwar Ibrahim and his gang with kid gloves.
While we are so afraid to anger our powerful foreign who asked us to be nice to terrorist like Anwar , they are  busy concocting a new tough and a no nonsense terror bills.
The US has its Patriots Act that can imprisoned and torture terror suspects without  any compunction, and feelings. With Canada new terror bill they can even put a secret camera in any suspect home.
Malaysia as a once peaceful country, as far as I am concerned, is now a paradise for mini-terror led by young and unguided politicians from the opposition parties.
Well, Malaysia this is something we have to think about and on how to deal with those bent on creating serious problems for this country.

P.S.  Indonesia must go ahead with the execution of two Australians for heroin smuggling.  Like Malaysia and if you are caught breaking a clearly state law with a death penalty you are done for.
Just because Australia believe they are a very civilised society, which is a myth, imagined what these two convicted drug pushers would unleashed in Australia had they succeeded to smuggle kilos of heroin in  that country.

One must separate external threat from internal threat.

Anony at 11.00am,

As you cannot be that stupid or may be you are, threats to the country, external or internal, are nevetheless threats to the country, the same!
