Yet our internet in Canada is facing a crisis.
Metered billing (pay 30 bucks a month get 60GB, +4 CND/GB of extra use for example)
what are we back in the year 1999?

now this, an act made so that they can just watch what you do..... i thought this kinda of paranoia was just in the states

oh well
sign the petition and MAYBE it will change something

This doesn't seem quite legit to me. I'm all for not being spied on but I can find no other reference to this act. And it's not a current Bill being brought before Parliament, LEGISinfo

The petition almost sounds like a easy way to get your e-mail for spam

Oh man, this doesn't look good. I was a little (actually, a lot) skeptical when I read the petition that Bill C-51 would actually allow communications monitoring without a warrant to do so. However, after reading a couple of articals it certainly looks that way. I'm gonna have to take the time to read the actual bill before I make up my mind, but if it is what the petition suggest, I'll definately make a stand.

I checked the site and searched for C-51. It turns out that the first reading of that bill was on Nov 1, 2010. I have yet to read it, but here's a link to the latest version of that bill if anyone is interested. C-51

Hello!!!



How are you doing? we had a visit to London (United
Kingdom) unannounced some days back, Unfortunately we got mugged at gun
point last two nights. All cash, Credit card and cellphones were
stolen,It was so traumatic,Thank God we have our life and passport
saved,we have been to the embassy they are not 100% helpful so I
concluded that returning back home will be the best option.we also have
limited means of getting out of here,as we have canceled our cards So I
won’t get a new card until I get back home.I really need your support
& assistance as my flight leaves in few hours,but we have problems
checking out of the Hotel,as I need to sort out some bills, Wondering if
you could loan me some few bucks to sort out the hotel bills and also
take a cab to the airport.Write me back so i can tell you how to get it
to me.

I think with the summer break, the bill will have to be reintroduced all over again during the fall sitting....
