I subscribe to emails from Openmedia.ca, which is an organization dedicated to keeping the internet open and
Today, I was disturbed to find out that not only was millions put aside in the budget for the online spying act that has yet not been made law,
but the depth of profiling that will go on will make it EASIER for scammers to steal your ID. I had my identity stolen once, it had nothing to
do with the internet and it's something that I wish no one will ever have to go through.
Here is the video Open Media created to break the issue down for us:
Toews is an idiot.
We've already said no, and now he is just sealing his fate a little more. I think Canadians hate having to repeat themselves. 136,000 on the petition
what sickens me is they have money -set aside- for it? something that is not law? And will never be law here? Are they just expecting to pass it
without a fight?
Go to hell Harper Regime. Your going down a path that leads to molotovs, i suggest stop enacting these laws, stop ignoring science, stop ignoring the

Makes me wonder if that money will "disappear" when we win again on this issue. I am a little worried though, do we even HAVE a voice

boils over to the rest of the country, will they listen then?
Most people I know are angry about almost everything these days. These are tense times.
This bizarre legislation will create Internet surveillance that is:
•Warrantless: A range of "authorities" will have the ability to access the private information of law-abiding Canadians and our families using
wired Internet and mobile devices, without justification.
•Invasive: The laws leave our personal and financial information less secure and more susceptible to cybercrime.
•Costly: Internet services providers may be forced to install millions of dollars worth of spying technology and the cost will be passed down to
Well that certainly does not help to put a good start on my day.
Yeah, those points were some of our rant against them the first time they proposed this. The wording is ambiguous and wide open to interpretation.
How many times will they propose the exact same thing? How many times must we say NO?
