(Un)Lawful Access: Canadian Government Wants to Spy on You

A snippet:

Without presenting a single shred of evidence that Canadian police need any more power than they already have (arguable too much as it is, if Toronto’s disastrous G20 summit is any indication), you are being asked to believe that handing law enforcement agencies a blank cheque to snoop through your life is actually for your own good.

This is, of course, nonsense. Passing legislation whose only benefit is police convenience comes nowhere close to justifying the dismantling of Canadians’ privacy rights.
