The Mounties say they’re concerned that the Harper government’s new anti-terror legislation may hurt – not help – their security efforts overseas.

Internal R-C-M-P briefing notes warn that new powers given to Canada’s spy agency could “jeopardize existing relationships” the Mounties have fostered.

The notes were drafted ahead of R-C-M-P deputy commissioner Mike Cabana’s appearance at a committee – reviewing the government’s sweeping security bill. \

Meanwhile –  two national groups have filed a legal challenge of the new omnibus security law. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression say Bill C-51 is unconstitutional.
