Canada’s Soon-To-Be Introduced “Lawful” Access Legislation

(Originally published in the Toronto Star by Dr. Michael Geist)

The first prong mandates the disclosure of Internet provider customer information without court oversight. Under current privacy laws, providers may voluntarily disclose customer information but are not required to do so.

The second prong requires Internet providers to dramatically re-work their networks to allow for real-time surveillance. (without court oversight)

The bill sets out detailed capability requirements that will eventually apply to all Canadian Internet providers. These include the power to intercept communications, to isolate the communications to a particular individual, and to engage in multiple simultaneous interceptions.

Moreover, the bill establishes a comprehensive regulatory structure for Internet providers that would mandate their assistance with testing their surveillance capabilities and disclosing the names of all employees who may be involved in interceptions (and who may then be subject to RCMP background checks).

Having obtained customer information without court oversight and mandated Internet surveillance capabilities, the third prong creates a several new police powers designed to obtain access to the surveillance data.

 These include new transmission data warrants that would grant real-time access to all the information generated during the creation, transmission or reception of a communication including the type, direction, time, duration, origin, destination or termination of the communication.

Law enforcement could then obtain a preservation order to require providers to preserve subscriber information, including specific communication information, for 90 days. Finally, having obtained and preserved the data, production orders can be used to require the disclosure of specified communications or transmission data.

American Dream

leave a comment »

I used to see you on every T.V.
Your smiling face looked back at me.
I used to see you on every T.V.
Your smiling face looked back at me.

Then they caught you with the girl next door,
People’s money piled on the floor,
Accusations that you try to deny,
Revelations and rumors begin to fly.

Now you think about reaching out
Maybe get some help from above.
Now you think about reaching out
Maybe get some help from above.

Reporters crowd around your house.
Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds,
Speculating what they may find out,
It don’t matter now, you’re all washed up.

You wake up in the middle of the night.
Your sheets are wet and your face is white,
You tried to make a good thing last,
How could something so good, go bad, so fast?

American dream, American dream
American dream, American dream.
Don’t know when things went wrong,
Might have been when you were young and strong.
Don’t know when things went wrong,
Might have been when you were young and strong.

Reporters crowd around your house.
Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds,
Speculating what they may find out,
It don’t matter now, you’re all washed up.

Don’t know when things went wrong,

American dream, American dream.

Don’t know when things went wrong,
Might have been when you were young and strong.
American dream, American dream.

  1. One Billion three hundred Million at G20 $ 1,300,000,000 2 day party.
  2. 30-40 billion dollar non tendered jets
  3. 10- 15 billion for US Style Mega Prisons and mandatory sentences when the US is changing its policies because they don’t work.
  4. Harper was president of the National Citizens Coalition that want to privatize our health care and make his insurance cronies more stink’n filthy rich.
  5. Carson
  6. Bev Oda
  7. Ouimet
  8. Not enough money invested in healthcare
  9. Not enough for seniors (too many go to the food bank)
  10. Claims coalition is undemocratic, while wanting to form his own
  11. No environmental policy because we don’t know what the U.S. is doing
  12. Crime bills for non-violent offenders
  13. Clement trying to stop the aids bill because he is in the pocket of big pharma
  14. Claims success for economy; Martin is the guy who wouldn’t let him deregulate the banking system and turn it into a U.S. one that is now economically ruined.
  15. ACOA appointments
  16. Appointed senate
  17. SNC Lavalin prison expansion in Libya ( I wonder who gets Canadian contracts)

  28. Taking away our rights under the Canadian constitution during the G20
  29. Claiming Igantieff a foreigner when Flaherty went to Princeton
  30. Off UN security council because of dirty mining in Congo.
  31. 150 million for economic action plan ads that went to a company in Washington state for the actual printing of the billboards and such instead of a Canadian print company
  32. The Cadman affair, gets caught on tape offering a MP that is dying of cancer a million dollar life insurance policy if he vote to over throw the Martin gov’t, then sues anybody who mentions it to keep it out of the press
  33. Having an ad budget (paid for by tax dollars) bigger than what Proctor&Gamble spends in a year.
  34. Loosing our seat in the security council for the first time….ever
  35. Not having a passport until he was elected an MP
    (way to figure out how Canada fits into the world)
  36. Having only one actual job in his life, and that was a job in the mail room at Esso his dad got him.Rating
  37. Black Halloween. 30 BILLION lost by Seniors. His campaign promises mean nothing.
  38. Trying to change the census to short form destroying important statistics used by many.
  39. Contempt of parliament. First government in history. Harper is downplaying it like its nothing. Disgraceful to True Canadians.

Think before you VOTE. But for the sake of your country, children and sovereignty VOTE.

HEALTH ALERT – Gonorrhea Lectim

leave a comment »

Get your head out of your ass and Vote for a honesty, integrity and civility.

Information about Gonorrhea Lectim

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It’s pronounced “Gonna re-elect ’em,” and it is a terrible disease.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behaviour involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it when they re-elected the Stephen Harper government and are now starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

It’s sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout. It’s pronounced “Vote-em-out“. You take the first dose in 2011 or whenever and don’t engage in such behaviour again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it in Canada.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folks you really care about.

Thanks Mom! 🙂

If you want to be a government in a minority Parliament, you have to work with other people.
Stephen Harper

It’s the government’s obligation to look really to the third parties to get the support to govern.
Stephen Harper

The government can only be brought down because it alienates several parties in the House.
Stephen Harper

The Leader of the Opposition’s constitutional obligation – the obligation to Parliament – it’s the reason we did the merger! – is to make sure Canadians have an alternative for government.
Stephen Harper

This party will not take its position based on public opinion polls. We will not take a stand based on focus groups. We will not take a stand based on phone-in shows or householder surveys or any other vagaries of pubic opinion.
Stephen Harper

Universality has been severely reduced: it is virtually dead as a concept in most areas of public policy.
Stephen Harper

We’ll support the government on issues if it’s essential to the country but our primary responsibility is not to prop up the government, our responsibility is to provide an opposition and an alternative government for Parliament and for Canadians.
Stephen Harper

If Ottawa giveth, then Ottawa can taketh away.
Stephen Harper

Choose wisely Canada.
