2 anti-terror measures will expire

From Times Wire Reports

The Canadian Parliament voted to end two anti-terrorism measures adopted after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, one that allowed for preventive arrests and another that permitted forced testimony before a judge.

The ruling conservative government wanted to extend the provisions, set to expire Thursday, but Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s motion was defeated 159 to 124 in the House of Commons. Neither piece of legislation has ever been applied.
