Take Some Action – Don’t Just Whine

Section 34 of the recently introduced Online Surveillance bill allows government agents, (doesn’t have to be police), completely unfettered access to your online information through your internet service provider.

Don’t want to take my word for it? Then take Terry Milewski’s word for it. The longtime political reporter for the CBC has a great breakdown of the worst parts of the legislation here.

So what can you do? Without getting up and even leaving your computer, you can do the following:

  • EMAIL YOUR MP. The Parliament of Canada has a great website where you can easily find out your member of parliament’s contact details and send them an email. Find your MP now!
  • SIGN THE PETITION: Is writing an Email, or a letter too hard? Then sign an electronic petition. Go to OpenMedia.ca/StopSpying, where you can sign the petition through a an easily filled form.
  • SHARE IT! Share this message through Twitter, FaceBook and Email. The more Canadians that get involved, the better the chance that the government will actually notice.

All of these things will take less than five minutes of your time.

If you stick your head in the sand, then the government will get away without whatever they want. When freedoms are given away, they are not easy to get back. A message needs to be send.

Come on Canada, make some noise.
