Thank God for Rick Mercer! Love this hilarious (and frightening) rant. We have to stop Bill C-30, the Conservative online surveillance bill.
“The state has no business in the hard drives of the nation,” rants Mercer. If they want access, they can get a warrant. It’s the same as coming into my home.
This bill is a blatant disregard for privacy.
If Bill C-30 is passed, it will require that all sorts of online information about you will be readily organized and accessible (a big security risk). It also removes the requirement for independent oversight on police investigations, allowing mandatory disclosure of an internet subscriber’s information without a warrant.
