Canadians take a stand against online spying

*UPDATE: On February 11, 2013 the government bowed to public pressure and killed online spying bill C-30! But we need to remain vigilant as threats to our privacy continue through Bill C-12 and other government proposals. Canadians won this round but the government has not given us a firm pro-privacy commitment, and we must keep the pressure on stop invasive and costly online spying initiatives. Please send a message

The government is set to ram through a new set of electronic surveillance laws that will allow authorities to access private information of any Canadian, at any time, without a warrant. You'll be forced to pay for this online spying scheme.

The government has failed to inform Canadians about the privacy and data security implications of this scheme, but Canadians are stepping up to the plate. Share these important citizen-made satirical videos—where everyday expectations of privacy are violated—with everyone you know before it's too late. Let's stand together and make our voices heard.

The government has failed to keep Canadians informed. Most people don’t know about the invasive online spying bills that will be rammed through Parliament this fall. Tell your friends, family, and coworkers to sign the petition on this page or at http://StopSpying.ca.
