Canadian Government Looking To Step Up Domestic Surveillance, Scale Back Intelligence Oversight

from the if-you-like-your-surveillance-state,-you-can-keep-it dept

Canada has its own PATRIOT Act — one that was supposed to be fixed by its new heartthrob PM, Justin Trudeau. As Cory Doctorow points out at Boing Boing, Trudeau promised to fix it in post, but that's not what's happening.

Back in 2015, Canada's failing, doomed Conservative government introduced Bill C-51, a far-reaching mass surveillance bill that read like PATRIOT Act fanfic; Justin Trudeau, leader of what was then a minority opposition party, whipped his MPs to vote for it, allowing it to pass, and cynically admitting that he was only turning this into law because he didn't want to give the Conservatives a rhetorical stick to beat him with in the next election — he promised that once he was Prime Minister, he'd fix it.

Now the Trudeau government has introduced Bill C-59, which is meant to correct those deficits. Instead, it makes them far, far worse.

Security research group Citizen Lab have done the heavy lifting Trudeau seems uninterested in doing. A comprehensive report  detailing everything wrong with the bill (along with 54 recommendations for fixes) has been published by the group. In it, Citizen Lab notes C-59 expands domestic surveillance, lowers standards for surveillance deployment, and trims back government oversight.

No, it doesn't. The CWB ended in 2015 (which is almost where the previous graph ends), though it was undergoing change a few years (2011) before.

Naked suspects in Alberta kidnapping may have sipped trippy tea

From a related article, "The family members were reluctant to share their experience because of the ongoing court case, but they told The Canadian Press they know the accused as neighbours. They are all members of the same Jehovah's Witnesses church." {#Eek}

Very cool.  The design is terrific.

I love the fact that the brother-inventors are ethnic Chinese from Richmond.  The background story is wonderful
 
This is such a great idea, I never expect to have one.  Why?  Because people will hoard them.

Too bad about Britain leaving the EU.  If it was not for the labour mobility provisions, I would guess that Britain would still be there.

It is in neither  Mexico's or Canada's interest to skirt the USA for trade but that sentiment is likely alive and well in both Mexico and Canada.  Blow back from President Trump frothing at the mouth.
Memo to Trump and his supporters:  

1.  Playing hard ball and coming across like a self-serving ass-hole works in some business settings.   Doing this with entire countries is bound to create a destructive counter reaction.  

2.   Admitting that your workers — American workers — are culturally inferior, i.e., far less productive than German workers and arguing that American workers require special protection as a result is a) not entirely accurate, many Americans are highly productive, and b) makes you look weak and disoriented.
