Canadians: Stop Government Online Spying

I just signed the petition to stop warrantless online spying at http://www.StopSpying.ca and you should too!

Here’s some background:

The government is trying to push through a set of electronic surveillance laws that will invade your privacy and cost you money. The plan is to force every phone and Internet provider to allow “authorities to collect the private information of any Canadian, at any time, without a warrant.

This bizarre legislation will create Internet surveillance that is:

– Warrantless: A range of “authorities” will have the ability to invade the private lives of law-abiding Canadians and our families using wired Internet and mobile devices, without justification.

– Invasive: The laws leave our personal and financial information less secure and more susceptible to cybercrime.

– Costly: Internet services providers may be forced to install millions of dollars worth of spying technology and the cost will be passed down to YOU.

If enough of us speak out now the government will have no choice but to stop this mandatory online spying scheme. Sign the Stop Online Spying petition now, and forward it to everyone you know.

Did Lulzsec breach your account on Facebook, PayPal, Xbox Live, Twitter, or elsewhere?

The hacker Group Lulzsec Security hacked into 62,000 private Internet accounts including Facebook, PayPal, dating sites, Xbox Live and Twitter.

See the CBC article “Facebook, PayPal users urged to check logins after hacking“:

There is a link to a Dazzlepod page referenced in the above article, which lists email addresses of hacked accounts; check to see if your accounts are on the list!
