Openmedia.ca – According to online surveillance expert Ron Deibert, a secretive Canadian government agency is collecting our sensitive private information, giving them the power to “pinpoint not only who you are, but with whom you meet, with what frequency and duration, and at which locations.”
The key agency collecting our sensitive information is called the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), which the Globe And Mail describes as an “ultrasecretive Canadian electronic-eavesdropping agency”.
This is important: We need to know what private data is being collected and stored, and why.
Even the government’s own Privacy Commissioner’s Office has ominously stated, “we know very little specific information at this point, but we want to find out more”.
We need to use this moment—when privacy issues are in the spotlight—to get answers. Call on the government to stop this secretive spying scheme, and to tell Canadians exactly what’s going on. We deserve to know
