OpenMedia – Canada’s growing privacy deficit has alarming consequences for our everyday lives. We’re at a tipping point where we need to decide whether to continue evolving into a surveillance society, or whether to rein in the government’s spying apparatus before more lives are ruined by information disclosures.
OpenMedia’s crowdsourced Privacy Plan outlines common sense steps to strengthen privacy safeguards for all of us.
The government has just rammed its anti-privacy Bill C-51 through the Senate. Now we need to tell Party Leaders to #KillC51 and implement this positive alternative.

Telecom Transparency Project – In their report, “The Governance of Telecommunications Surveillance: How Opaque and Unaccountable Practices and Policies Threaten Canadians,” the TTP discussed the regularity at which government agencies gain access to telecommunications data. Save for the Canadian Border Services Agency, federal government agencies that are principally responsible for conducting domestic telecommunications surveillance, such as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, could not account for how often they use their surveillance powers.
The TTP concludes by asserting that new legislation must be introduced and passed so that Canadians become aware of the magnitude of contemporary telecommunications surveillance that policing organizations are involved in on a yearly basis.
