UPDATE: Huge news! Due to overwhelming public pressure against Bill C-30, the Canadian government has decided to put a hold on the proposal! The Harper government may revisit the bill and possibly look to amend it, but they are likely just waiting for public pressure to die down. That's a direct challenge to you! Keep it up, and sign the petition below!
Welcome to the new Canada: Where your ISP is required to turn over your name, Internet protocol address and other personal information to police, even if they don't have a warrant.
The Harper government, with the introduction of Bill C-30, wants to give law enforcement unlimited and warrantless access to personal online data. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has even resorted to using scare tactics to push this bill through, saying that if you’re against C-30 then you are siding with child pornographers!
This hyperbolic fearmongering is a transparent attempt to use children as political shields. The full force of the law should be applied to those who are suspected of crimes against children. However, law enforcement in a democratic society must have a warrant before accessing the information of citizens, including those who are suspected of crimes.
Tell Vic Toews and the Harper government to abandon C-30, respect the rule of law and respect the right to privacy for all Canadian citizens. We'll deliver it to Prime Minister Harper before this bill proceeds any further.
