When the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization says Bill C-51 violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, you know we're in trouble.
Don't forget to tell your Senators to ‪#‎StopC51‬ at http://StopC51.ca?src=gplusa
The Harper government's controversial anti-terrorism bill violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Canada has ratified, according to legal analysis by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), ...

CSIS and CSE have been signing cooperation agreements since before the Canadian government acknowledged that CSE existed. The coziness had even a senior minister worried.

BREAKING: The CBC is reporting that Canada's spy agency CSE is deliberately hacking popular mobile web browsers and App Stores - leaving millions at risk of having their private information compromised. Why won't the government listen to Canadians and implement our crowdsourced plan that would end these abuses?https://openmedia.ca/news/breaking-cse-and-five-eyes-revealed-be-targeting-popular-mobile-browsers-and-mobile-app-stores-leavi

Congratulations to all for securing this amazing coverage on our crowdsourced Privacy Plan, a crowdsourced plan to fix Canada's privacy deficit. Over 125,000 took part in this process and we're happy to know your views on privacy have been endorsed by Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien. You can read the complete plan here: http://PrivacyPlan.ca
With the government's controversial proposed anti-terror law set to be passed into law within weeks, some of Bill C-51's most outspoken critics are supporting a "pro-privacy action plan" that calls for an end to warrantless and mass surveillance and more independent oversight.

"Just because the reform effort in Congress might actually be successful does not mean that the kinds of concerns #Snowden   raised and that the kinds of abuses we should all be worried about have abated. If anything, it just makes it that much more important that we understand what else the government is doing in our name."-- #EdwardSnowden   #Whistleblower

The #TPP is secretive, extreme, and it'll break our digital future. That's why more than 250 U.S. tech companies are against it. http://ow.ly/Nd6zowhy

Once upon a time, a journalist never gave up a confidential source. When someone comes forward, anonymously, to inform the public, it’s better to risk time incarcerated than give them up. This ethical responsibility was also a practical and professional necessity. If you promise anonymity, you’re obliged to deliver....

The Minister of Fisheries pleaded that she was "guided by expert advisors" and that the licence conditions were based on "scientific criteria," but Justice Rennie noted that the Minister had said nothing about the science and furthermore he said:

 The Minister sheltered behind Marine Harvest's evidence [37]

The point is that assertions made in order to bolster the reasonableness of the Minister’s exercise of discretion cannot be made without evidence. [38]

What the Minister cannot do is make unsupported statements of science.[39]
The Federal Court of Canada agreed that the salmon farming industry should not be allowed to make the decision whether to put diseased farmed salmon into net pens on wild salmon migration routes! Please forward this petition to your salmon-loving friends and lets stop the dirty practice of farming salmon in the ocean!

Last week, Tory MP Laurie Hawn​ attacked business leaders, telling them they lacked Canadian values for opposing Bill C-51. Now business leaders are pushing back.
You won’t want to miss this.
At least, that's how things appear to work in Tory MP Laurie Hawn's world.
