That's huge: in the UK the banks were temporarily able to do that by claiming chip-and-pin cards were secure (boy, was that not true). The courts threw it out, as you might imagine, but only after lots of people were defrauded.
In Canada, the banks are on the hook, and have refunded me both times their "unhackable" pin-and-chip card got hacked. We and the US are looking at card-and-signature systems, which have good customer protection as humans can verify claimed forgeries, just like cheques.
I'm David in general, DCB at work (there are lots of Daves), Orv as a nickname, Uncle Dave to my nephew when he was little, Mr Collier to all sorts of illiterate clerks. I have a pen-name, and a bunch of versions of my name required by email providers. My name also changed when I got married, as did my wife's.

Canadians usually die from car accidents (or are eaten by polar bears (;-))
He was doing a ceremonial guard duty, as an honour. He probably didn't expect to be shot in the back.
The operational bases were on moderate alert, but apparently the PM didn't think he or anyone else needed to be careful...
If you don't care about constitutionality, you prohibit your legal draughtsmen from reporting on it, and you pass what you want. It's up to your opponents to find a good test case, and figure out how to pay for a challenge when they don't have standing.
The Next Centuries Cities coalition, which includes a couple cities that already have gigabit fiber internet for their residents, was devised to help communities who want to build their own broadband networks navigate logistical and legal challenges to doing so."
