LETTER: Bill threatens rights to privacy

Even the Supreme Court of Canada concurs that warantless government use of private information

I am gravely concerned about the imminent Bill C-13 being rammed down the throats of Canadians without our say.

Even the Supreme Court of Canada concurs that warantless government use of private information is unconstitutional, so why is this happening?

If indeed this was all on the up and up, why is Vic Toew’s extremely unpopular antispying bill hidden amongst its pages instead of hiding behind the skirts of antibullying legislation?

Polls show that the vast majority of Canadians don’t like these antispying tactics, they don’t want them and that they don’t buy into the reasoning behind them.

Our constitution is in place to protect our freedoms and this bill would endanger my fundamental right to privacy.

C. Royston, Victoria
