Harper Is Willing and Able to Keep Canada Under Surveillance - 2014-05-27
Emma Gilchrist recounted in a recent DeSmogBlog post how a "Victoria day like any other" radically changed when she found that she had been "vigorously" spied upon by Ottawa at her place of work, an environmental organization.
She found out that her organization, along with many others, where targeted because of opposition to the Alberta tar sands. "What kind of country spies on environmental organizations in the name of the oil industry?" she wrote. "It seems more Nigerian than Canadian."
We now know Ottawa works in lockstep with telecom companies to get information about the rest of us. But if you ask your Internet provider about this they won't tell you a damn thing.
