Are we now living in a country where a warrantless range of options by the government has the ability to invade our private lives?

Privacy commissioners across Canada have voiced their concerns about this legislation but, as usual, the PM and his Justice Minister ignore the will of experts and the people.

If Canadians care about their online privacy, they should take the time to let Harper know this is not the way Canadians do business.
