Submission + - Conservatives Commitment to Internet Surveillance (michaelgeist.ca) 1

alexo writes: Dr. Michael Geist writes that Canada's Conservatives committed to pass "lawful access" legislation that would fundamentally reshape the Internet in Canada within the new Parliament's first 100 days if they win a majority.

The legislation includes new laws that would establish massive Internet surveillance requirements and the potential disclosure of personal information without court oversight.

The proposed bills were never debated in parliament nor subjected to committee hearings, yet the Conservatives election platform promises to bundle all the crime and justice bills into a single omnibus bill and to pass it within a new Parliament's first 100 days.

With the elections looming, it is time to fight for your rights.
