supreme court upheld your rights

The Supreme Court of Canada has upheld your Rights.

They have affirmed that your communications provider(and really any company you have personal information with) can not just give all your personal information to the police without a valid and justifiable warrant.
A warrant must always state the exact crime committed.

A single warrant for multiple unrelated people is usually banned, as per law.  The police usually would present a blanket warrant of where people match a certain generalized criteria. One of the best examples is where the police will go to your electricity provider and illegally demand details of everyone who have over a certain usage per day/month, and say that those people are guilty of being a grow-op, without any evidence at all.
The courts like initial evidence, otherwise they can and will throw out entire cases, based on laws being broken to start the case.

Hopefully gone are the days where the police and government routinely demanded your personal information as they went on a Witch hunt. A direct violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Canada's Republican Prime Minister Stephen, will not like that. The Rightwing rule is to treat everyone as a criminal first and quietly say the person is partially innocent later(partially: welcome to the name-list that will cause you to be violated again and again in your travels).

End the Rightwing's war of terror.  So many innocent victims, dead or damaged, all over the Earth.

As an extended note..... If you happened to recently donate to a Leftwing Humanitarian charity in Canada?  Y'all might be called a terrorist by Prime Minister Stephen H.
The Rightwing versions? No problem to Stephen. His Republican party loves money laundering and having most of the incoming money going straight to the millionaire executives of the "charity".
A true charity spends 15% on day to day operations and wages.
A shady charity spends more than 85% of incoming money on executives. Plus day to day operations that strangely cost 4 times what it should. Hmmmm.

pm harper says all canadians online are criminals

Yet again, Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper(Republican) hates that people have privacy and legal Rights in Canada.

He keeps pushing unlawful bills that violate your Rights and Freedoms, with many lame excuses of derp derp derp hurp derp and finally herp.

To grant immunity from prosecution, to a company that holds your private records, is truly a crime.
The new proposed law, Bill C-13 or the Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act, “will allow authorities access to the private lives of millions of law-abiding Canadians, even if they’re not suspected of wrong-doing,” OpenMedia said in a statement released Wednesday.

“Bill C-13 would let those authorities create detailed profiles of Canadians based on who they talk to and what they say and do online. The legislation also provides immunity to telecom providers who hand over the private information of Canadians without a warrant,” the group said.

University of Ottawa digital law professor Michael Geist wrote last November that the proposed law would essentially allow authorities to request data on any telecom subscriber, regardless of whether the request is in connection to the investigation of a crime.

“It simply opens the door to requests for voluntary assistance for any reason whatsoever,” Geist wrote.

Leaked documents from Snowden illustrated that Canada has helped allied countries to carry out warrantless surveillance. The documents also indicated Canada’s electronic spying agency, CSEC, collected data from Canadians’ computers at an airport WiFi hotspot, though a federal watchdog later said Canadians were not tracked during that experiment.

Why does the Canadian association of chiefs of police hate having to abide by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms?

To access peoples private records and travel locations, you need a warrant. That warrant will state the crime you are accused of.

One law, that applies to everyone, and no excuses.
That is how a fair and balanced legal system works.
To say a crime is legal, after the government or police got caught, is a crime.

more trans pacific partnership censorship

Corporations hate you and all your freedoms, so they make illegal laws that restrict your Rights so they can profit immensely via their fully paid for corrupt politicians.

A government that works in secret, is a Dictatorship.

The Facts
What is TPP?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership would create a super-treaty which would jeopardize the sovereignty of the nations involved by giving that power to large corporations like Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Halliburton, Philip Morris, GE, GM, Apple.

    There are currently 11 nations involved: U.S., New Zealand, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Mexico and Canada. Japan has shown interest.
    The economic power of this group is more than 40% larger than the 27- nation European Union.
    TPP will offshore millions of good-paying jobs to low-wage nations, undercutting working conditions globally and increasing unemployment.
    TPP will expand pharmaceutical monopoly protections and institute longer patents that will  decrease access to affordable medications
    TPP will limit food GMO labeling and allow the import of goods that do not meet US safe standards.
    TPP will institute SOPA, PIPA, and CISPA-like regulations and Internet measures which restrict our right to free speech.
    TPP will roll back Wall Street regulations, and prohibit bans on risky financial services.
    TPP will give multinational corporations and private investors the right to sue nations in private tribunals. These tribunals have the power to overturn environmental, labor, or any other laws that limit profit, awarding taxpayer funded damages.
    TPP will encourage the privatization of lands and natural resources in areas where indigenous people live.

… unless we let them know “No Deal!”

The Trans-Pacific Partnership n. 1. A "free trade" agreement that would set rules on non-trade matters such as food safety, internet freedom, medicine costs, financial regulation, and the environment. 2. A binding international governance system that would require the United States, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and any other country that signs on to conform their domestic policies to its rules.  3. A secret trade negotiation that has included over 600 official corporate "trade advisors" while hiding the text from Members of Congress, governors, state legislators, the press, civil society, and the public.

Everybody Let's Stop the TPP: Share These Videos and Spread the Word

President Obama was scheduled to meet with the leaders of the other eleven countries negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting in Bali, supposedly to plan the “end-game” for this massive trade deal. However, he has made a sudden decision to cancel his trip, claiming that this was a casualty of the government shutdown. Obama's announcement adds to the impression that goal of completing TPP at APEC has become unobtainable and reveal how precariously the negotiations are going.

There are reports that the remaining TPP country leaders who will be attending the APEC meeting will still be convening “with the aim of hammering out a framework.” As we've also previously mentioned, smaller issue-specific intersessional meetings have also grown more frequent and gone even further underground. So while the news of his trip getting cancelled is indeed welcome news, the TPP still could be signed even as its contents remain hidden from the public.

We only know what kind of copyright enforcement provisions are in this agreement due to leaks, but what we do know for sure is that this agreement is driven by corporate interests who want to enact their own digital policy standards through an undemocratic, backdoor process. We need to spread the word about the TPP far and wide. It's up to us to force our elected representatives to do their job and ensure that our countries are not binding our laws to secret treaties that shut users out. We've written extensively on our blog about all the different ways the TPP is a threat to the Internet, but media can sometimes be a more effective way to get people to pay attention.

Just this week, Consumers International produced three new videos about the TPP. The first is an animated video for a J-pop song called Everybody Let's Stop the TPP! (みんなでストップTPP!) by Emi Nakada and Citron 178. Consumers International then translated the lyrics and re-recorded the tune in English (it was a good thing they put a CC-BY license on the song!) and even made a karaoke version for people to sing along.

Canada soon to lose its sovereignty

The Trans-Pacific-Partnership is designed to unlawfully over-ride your countries laws, so that Rich Billionaires can profit over your poor abused bodies.

Lets get some of these corrupt politicians put in prison for their crimes against the people.

There is zero legal reason why they can ignore the specific independent country's laws.

Your country's laws apply to your country and there is zero legal reason to allow another country's laws to abolish your laws.

There is zero legal reason for them to be able to destroy your Rights and Freedoms via unlawful laws.

Lets get some of these corrupt politicians put in prison for their crimes against the people.

No politician, no matter what their stature, can be allowed to abuse people via dirty backdoor deals that wipe out sovereignty.
Get those politicians put on trial, to then be given a life prison sentence in maximum security prison, for their wide-reaching crimes against the people.

September 2013
Say No to Internet Censorship

For the first time, actual Presidents and Prime Ministers of 12 powerful countries will meet behind closed doors to seal an extreme Internet censorship plan called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

We know from leaked drafts that the TPP will make the Internet more expensive, censored, and policed. Experts say, “kids could be sent to jail for downloading” and whole families could be kicked off the Internet.

This final meeting is happening in a few days --

This looks like our last chance to speak out against the huge damage the TPP will do to free expression online. Please send this crucial message

Besides the insane profiteering, These types of 'agreements' are about how to censor peoples free exchange of information.

The free exchange of information scares governments who like to rule in secret and with an iron fist.

Canada assists in destroying encryption standards

 The Internet is an international collaboration to ensure the free exchange of ideas in order to further society, in a good way, in to the future.

Canada, in its Internet encryption standard responsibilities at the time, allowed the NSA(National inSecurity Administration of the U.S.A.) to take over encryption standards and the NSA then made lots of backdoors to see what was in the 'private' encrypted communications of the Earth.

The NSA has also put splitters in the Internet fiber backbone, so to copy the data on that line without having to put servers at the ISP's and Internet routers.

 Its like where you having someone guard your home while you take a vacation and when you get back everything seems ok.
So every day as you are out, in comes this person who looks through your things or maybe he just logs into your security computer from a remote location and watches you through your video security system.
Occasionally he may add things to your things in order to threaten you with something later, should you try to reveal that he has easy access to your things.
Internal N.S.A. memos describe how the agency subsequently worked behind the scenes to push the same standard on the International Organization for Standardization. “The road to developing this standard was smooth once the journey began,” one memo noted. “However, beginning the journey was a challenge in finesse.”
At the time, Canada’s Communications Security Establishment ran the standards process for the international organization, but classified documents describe how ultimately the N.S.A. seized control. “After some behind-the-scenes finessing with the head of the Canadian national delegation and with C.S.E., the stage was set for N.S.A. to submit a rewrite of the draft,” the memo notes. “Eventually, N.S.A. became the sole editor.”
Cryptographers have long had mixed feelings about N.I.S.T.’s close relationship with the N.S.A., but many said last week’s revelations had confirmed their worst fears and eroded their confidence in N.I.S.T. standards entirely.

 “If vulnerabilities are found in these or any other N.I.S.T. standard, we will work with the cryptographic community to address them as quickly as possible,” the agency’s statement said.
“I know from firsthand communications that a number of people at N.I.S.T. feel betrayed by their colleagues at the N.S.A.,” Mr. Green said in an interview Tuesday. “Reopening the standard is the first step in fixing that betrayal and restoring confidence in N.I.S.T.”

 For those of you who don't know how government works... Certain laws and regulations are written by private corporations, who pay off the politicians to push laws and regulations that are very friendly to the corporations.
The laws and regulations can be considered illegal due to their discriminatory nature and also based on Constitutional laws violated. Add in a bit of embezzlement because of taxpayer money being given to a private company.
This is done for profits or for ignoring environmental standards. In other cases it is done so the corporation can avoid paying taxes, while at the same time getting tax rebates from the taxpayers.
In the International community(free trade), rules are written to allow other countries laws to over-ride your country's laws. It is a crime for another country's laws to over-ride your country's laws.

 It is a crime for another country's laws to over-ride your country's laws.

Quit treating everyone as a potential terrorist.

 It is a crime for another country's laws to over-ride your country's laws.

government has your encryption keys

Once again, it has been revealed on how Rightwing governments have been given encryption keys to all sorts of supposedly secure communications methods.

They have also built in backdoors to a ton of programs(from large companies) to be able to just log in and see what you don't want them to see.

This is a crime of the highest level and you should not allow it.
Those responsible for instigating it, along with continuing it, need to be put in prison for life.

By the way.... The NSA does not really answer to anyone in government, even though rightwing government gave them all these powers and come to use all that unlawfully collected data.

This whole issue is Global. World governments just love all that data for their own Witch hunts.
 The National Security Agency is winning its long-running secret war on encryption, using supercomputers, technical trickery, court orders and behind-the-scenes persuasion to undermine the major tools protecting the privacy of everyday communications in the Internet age, according to newly disclosed documents.

The agency has circumvented or cracked much of the encryption, or digital scrambling, that guards global commerce and banking systems, protects sensitive data like trade secrets and medical records, and automatically secures the e-mails, Web searches, Internet chats and phone calls of Americans and others around the world, the documents show.

Many users assume — or have been assured by Internet companies — that their data is safe from prying eyes, including those of the government, and the N.S.A. wants to keep it that way. The agency treats its recent successes in deciphering protected information as among its most closely guarded secrets, restricted to those cleared for a highly classified program code-named Bullrun, according to the documents, provided by Edward J. Snowden, the former N.S.A. contractor.

Beginning in 2000, as encryption tools were gradually blanketing the Web, the N.S.A. invested billions of dollars in a clandestine campaign to preserve its ability to eavesdrop. Having lost a public battle in the 1990s to insert its own “back door” in all encryption, it set out to accomplish the same goal by stealth.

The agency, according to the documents and interviews with industry officials, deployed custom-built, superfast computers to break codes, and began collaborating with technology companies in the United States and abroad to build entry points into their products. The documents do not identify which companies have participated. 

Oh and the U.S. President knows that the NSA is a rogue agency that answers to no one. Probably thanks to G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney who are still wanted for 'crimes against humanity'.
The governments of this world will still use NSA data when they see fit while ignoring the criminal act that is the NSA.
 .....he shouldn't be taken by surprise when the press reveals what the NSA is doing, and shouldn't have to "go back and find out what's going on." He's more or less admitting that there's no oversight and the NSA is a rogue agency making its own rules, only checked on when the press reveals something.
