In light of recent stories of alleged radicalization of young Canadians, Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney talks about the impact Bill C-51 would have had on those cases. 

Blaney also addresses the growing number of critics of the anti-terrorism bill. He refuses to say whether he has heard anything so far that made him think the legislation should be amended. In fact, Blaney tells The House's Evan Solomon that the debate, as well as recent events, have convinced him of the need to move quickly to pass C-51.
