With all of the rights and freedoms of Canadian citizenship being eroded by the â€œHarper Government,â€ now they wish to have legislation in place to monitor anyoneâ€™s online activities, without the requirement of a warrant and without any oversight whatsoever.
That would make anyone with an internet connection vulnerable to the misuse and abuse of the new level of â€œguilty until proven innocentâ€ laws in Canada.
The â€œyouâ€™re with us or with the pedophilesâ€ rhetoric is strictly from the American Republican playbook of dirty tricks, under fear mongering.
By pushing this legislation along with the new loosey-goosey definition of terrorist (someone who is mentally ill or who commits a hit-and-run), we are all at risk of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and ending up on a government watch list.
When Mr. Harper was sworn in as Prime Minister he said, â€œYou wonâ€™t recognize Canada when Iâ€™m through.â€ Heâ€™s not done yet, and already, I donâ€™t recognize it now.
I encourage Canadians to learn more about how we can work together to safeguard our privacy at OurPrivacy.ca.
