Canada becoming 'host' country for cyber-attacks, Ottawa fears

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2012/11/09/pol-cp-cyber-attacks-canada-host-public-safety.html

Vic Toews and his band of merry starting the fear ball rolling again. Seems to m Bill C-30 is getting the final push before they tell us we have no more internet privacy. In my opinion it will probably do the biggest harm to the Harper government's election future. It seems evident by the support Toews has received (not moved to another posting, or asked to reconsider his position) that he is receiving support from the party. These stories may seeem benign, but they certainly add more credence to their desire to snoop more freely on it's citizens (would we even be considered a democracy anymore?).

For people like me it doesn't matter, the spooks know who I am and I go to no lengths to hide how I feel about the Security Establishment in this country, including taking them to court. For others who want their privacy maintained however, take note...

1. Sounds like they are tossing whatever they can think of

at the wall, and hoping something sticks. As long as it get publicity, nothin's gonna stick as far as the public is concerned. Not even "If you're not with us, you're with the hackers".

About 3 months ago I read a G&M article claiming that Bill c-30 was dead. The next day Toews rebutted it saying that it was very much alive.

Just recently, the Government was exploiting the suicide of Amanda Todd to introduce Anti-bullying legislation that included ending online anonymity with respect to social media.
