We Must Stop This!
Posted by E on February 16, 2012
Under the transparent BS veil of “stop internet child predators”, a caustic new Canadian law is about to be passed that will make SOPA look like child’s play. I know that in this country people like to grumble about everything yet are reluctant to get involved in political causes — but this is an issue you cannot afford to ignore. Do YOU really want any police officer or member of CSIS to randomly tap into your telephone lines or internet activity?
Think I’m kidding? Think again.
The government is about to push through a set of electronic surveillance laws that will invade your privacy and cost you money. The plan is to force every phone and Internet provider to allow “authorities” to collect the private information of any Canadian, at any time, without a warrant.
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 YOU.
If enough of us speak out now the government will have no choice but to stop this mandatory online spying scheme. Sign the petition at http://www.stopspying.ca/
