Okay.
We rename SCISA to SCIDA. There are a few other changes, though. I sit on the privacy committee and we had a more fulsome report on that specific point of information sharing. The government did provide a response and there are some changes, more substantive changes beyond a title change, in the new SCIDA. One is the definition. I don't know if either of you have comments on the new definition and whether it's sufficient to meet the concerns that were raised in the course of the national security review.

No, that's great. Thank you.
First, this is quite lengthy legislation that we've been discussing. One question that comes to me when I speak to people in my community—and we do have a private member's bill in the House that's proposing it right now—is to just repeal BillC-51 and leave us where we were pre- Bill C-51. On that broad question, if I can ask either one of you, why not just repeal Bill C-51 and leave us where we were?

Thank you, Minister, for coming today.
The security framework is something that is very important to my constituents. As part of the consultations that took place, I held a meeting in my riding to which many people came. It was well attended. What came through were some very strong concerns about ensuring privacy rights and charter rights. That frames a bit of what I'm getting at with some of the questions I'm asking today.
The first is one you touched on briefly. Many people have come and asked me why do we not simply repeal the former BillC-51 from the prior government, the prior Parliament. Why is any new legislation required? Why not just repeal it and leave it as it is?

Thank you, Chair.
Thanks to the panel for being here.
With all due respect, Minister, BillC-51 was passed a few years ago, and I think that it received widespread support in the House. I believe you voted in favour of it. I think that it did make some changes that at the time were appropriate. Now in review three years later, we're looking at essentially a review. This is not a total rewrite, I think you would agree, of the original bill, but it does add some ingredients that are probably important.
When you mention the law expressly prohibiting protest and advocacy and so on, will the changes in the new bill result in charges that were not allowed for in BillC-51? Have we enhanced the probabilities of prosecution in Bill C-59 over Bill C-51?
