Stop Online Spying

The Canadian government is trying to ram through an anti-Internet set of electronic surveillance laws that will invade privacy and cost citizens money. The plan is to force every phone and Internet provider to surrender customer's personal information to "authorities" without a warrant.
 
This bizarre legislation will create Internet surveillance that is:
  • Warrantless: A range of "authorities" will have the ability to invade the private lives of law-abiding Canadians and their families using wired Internet and mobile devices, without a warrant or any justification.
  • Invasive and Dangerous: The laws leave Candian's 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 Canadians.
If enough of us speak out now the Canadian government will have no choice but to stop this mandatory online spying scheme. Sign the petition now, and forward it to everyone you know

The Canadian Police State

More and more Canada is becoming a police state. For the Canadian government to even propose that it is acceptable to allow warrantless access to our personal and private data is an affront to democracy.

Scary

This is scary stuff.
