Bill C-30 must be stopped and OpenMedia.ca is helping spread the word about the assault on Freedom contained within it. One person's comment on YouTube pretty much summed up how I feel about Bill C-30: I shouldn't have to surrender my civil liberties just so I can access the internet to talk to friends and family or enhance my education in an online course. Would you want … [Read more...]
Police overwhelmingly support C-30’s warrantless searches and violation of privacy
It really isn’t a shock to see police chiefs from across Canada coming out in support of the warrantless search and privacy violations contained in Bill C-30, disingenuously named “Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act”. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) even go so far as calling it a “reasonable tool” in the battle against crime. Obviously they … [Read more...]
Bill C-30’s invasions of privacy and warrantless searches are outrageous, but all the other Acts are just fine?
Bruce Cockburn wrote a famous song that contained the line “The trouble with normal is it only gets worse.” The same can be said for governments. They always get worse, too. The current so-called Conservative government is a perfect example of this, and Vic Toews unwittingly tried using this to his advantage.

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 … [Read more...]
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews: Are you really as incompetent as your protestations make you appear?
I couldn't help but laugh as I read reports that Public Safety Minister Vic Toews is suddenly shocked to learn what Bill C-30,the "Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act", actually contains. I find this odd, since I've listened to him defend Bill C-30 repeatedly and blather on endlessly about how police can never abuse their powers under this act; that he is … [Read more...]
Vic Toews: Politicians, like diapers, should be changed often, and for the same reason
While claiming it’s perfectly reasonable for the government to spy on its citizens, the shoe is clearly on the other foot in a lovely social media twist that makes a point to Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, Vic Toews. Toews is very cranky over how his personal life and details of his divorce, infidelity and lack of child support is being displayed very publicly on a … [Read more...]
