The Conservative Government of Stephen Harper has introduced Bill C-30, disingenuously named the Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act. This Act seeks to force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide police with your personal private information WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT.
Warrantless searches are not something Canadians should tolerate or be subjected to. If the police believe someone is committing or has committed a crime, they should be required to go before a judge and obtain a search warrant. Anything less is a violation of our Charter Rights and is 100% unacceptable.
If you believe in your Right to Privacy, and that if police believe you have committed a crime they should be required to go before a judge and obtain a search warrant before demanding your personal information, then please download my Stop Bill C-30 WordPress plugin and add it to your WordPress-powered blog.
The plugin is simple, and as you can see from viewing this page, adds a simple black banner to the top right corner of your WordPress website. When you click on the ribbon you will be taken directly to RealPrivacy.ca, a website created by Ann Cavoukian, Ph.D., the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario. (I've modified the plugin here on ChristopherDiArmani.com to bring you to this post, but the one you download below will take your visitors to RealPrivacy.ca.)
She created this site to help stop what the government is calling "lawful access" legislation. What this legislation does is anything but lawful, of course, because it strips you of your Right to Privacy, your Right against Unreasonable Search and Seizure, and your Right to Remain Silent.
Help promote Internet Privacy and use the tools provided by RealPrivacy.ca to educate yourself about the perils of Bill C-30 and also to let the government know you will not tolerate this legislation.
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and Prime Minister Stephen Harper need to know that Canadians value their personal privacy and will not tolerate a so-called conservative government stripping Canadians of our most precious right: Our Right to Privacy.
