Canadian Gov: Give Police Sweeping Powers Or Else You Support Child Porn

Last week they condoned torture. This week, Canada’s Conservatives are saying protecting privacy is tantamount to promoting child pornography.

What an absurd remark! It shows just how desperate the pro-censorship side has become if they need to rely on this kind of polarizing rhetoric.

Thankfully, Canadians will not likely stand for these ludicrous and inaccurate blanket statements. Opposition is already mounting and petitions are being signed. If you want to contact your MP, it’s really easy find out how.

To learn more about these ‘Lawful Access’ bills, Law professor Michael Geist does a nice breakdown on his blog. As well, another of Geist’s posts worth reading shows how the government’s own documents do not support mandatory disclosure of subscriber information without a court order.

Not that the Conservatives care to listen to reason. If they do end up getting away with these bullying tactics, just be prepared for the day when we can either extend the Harper government’s term indefinitely or get accused of supporting Nazi terrorists.
