Privacy is a serious concern for all Canadians today, and we're steadfastly committed to the road ahead. But we also want to take a moment to have some fun and celebrate how far we've come together! That's why on June 5th we're celebrating our PrivacyPlan.ca. 
This plan was a crowdsourced effort, and now we're crowdsourcing again!

Wondering what your internet speed is? Now you can compare the speed your ISP says they’re selling you against the actual speed they’re delivering. This new tool from Canadian Internet Registration Authority​ (CIRA) will help us take the pulse of Canada's Internet. Take the test at http://cira.ca/performance

Get ready for Cellphone Freedom Day! Starting June 3, three year contracts which have run for 24 months or more can be cancelled without any penalties. These positive changes would never have happened without tens of thousands of Canadians speaking out to make this code of conduct happen!
Canada’s wireless carriers are preparing for an unprecedented wave of customer free-agency as a new regulation kicks in next week, and that could mean some good deals for people who are willing to bargain with their carrier.

We’re very excited to be one of the 25 Canadian not-for-profit organizations funded by the .CA Community Investment Program to support Canada’s Internet community. This grant will help us support "Connecting Canadian Communities", a project that will create a world-class online platform that educates Canadians about the impact and value of municipal broadband in urban, rural, and remote communities. Stay tuned for more on this exciting project!
Today the .CA Community Investment Program announced over $1 million in funding for 25 Canadian not-for-profit organizations working on the cutting-edge of Internet issues and services. This fund, generated from the registration of .CA domains, supports Canada’s Internet community with funding for research, infrastructure, online services or digital literacy projects.

Educating the people is really the only way to stop mass surveillance.  If more people were educated then two years ago they would have known about Drake, and Binney.

Earlier today, the Telecommunications Transparency Project announced the release of The Governance of Telecommunications Surveillance: How Opaque and Unaccountable Practices and Policies Threaten Canadians.
This landmark report found that rampant telecom surveillance is being conducted in Canada, with very little transparency or oversight. The report's lead author, Dr. Christopher Parsons of the Munk School’s Citizen Lab, outlines the key findings to our community in this blog:

Canada's spying is out of control. A new privacy report warns about rampant Canadian telecom surveillance.
Canadian telecommunications providers have been handing over vast amounts of customer information to law enforcement and government departments and agencies with little transparency or oversight, a new report says.
