Friday, February 27, 2015

“Canada and the Security State” will foster conversation on surveillance in Canada TORONTO, ON – Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) is hosting an event on the state of digital surveillance in Canada, featuring a live Q&A with Edward Snowden. NSA whistleblower, and subject of the Oscar-winning documentary “Citizenfour,” Edward Snowden has sparked an international conversation on surveillance, privacy, and national security. But in the wake of the Snowden leaks, what have we learned? Where are we headed? And what questions remain? Moderated by Anna Maria Tremonti, Host of CBC Radio One’s The Current and CJFE Board member, Snowden will be answering questions from individuals in attendance, and submitted in advance via Twitter. Canadians can submit their questions for Edward Snowden using #AskSnowden on Twitter. The event will be live streamed at CBCNews.ca. Following the Q&A with Snowden, the event will feature a panel discussion with Canadian experts discussing the implications of these revelations for the country, and the future of digital surveillance in Canada. Panelists:

Dave Seglins, Senior Reporter, CBC Investigative Unit Dr. Andrew Clement, Professor, Faculty of Information, University of Toronto Laura Tribe, National and Digital Programs Lead, Canadian Journalists for Free Expression

CJFE will also be announcing the launch of a new tool to help Canadians better understand the scope of mass surveillance programs at the event. “Without oversight, transparency or accountability, mass surveillance has spiraled out of control. It poses a serious threat to our rights and freedoms,” said Tom Henheffer, Executive Director of CJFE. “It’s time for a comprehensive, national debate about what we as Canadians expect from those working to ‘protect’ us.” Event details: Snowden Live: Canada and the Security State When: 12-2 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, 2015 Where: RCC 103, Rogers Communications Centre, Ryerson University, 80 Gould Street, Toronto Tickets and more event details: cjfe.org/asksnowden The event is being produced in partnership with Ryerson University and the CBC.

    DR. JOROMI IS TRULY A POWERFUL MAN. Contacting Dr Joromi is the best thing that has ever happened to me. My husband left me for another woman for the reason which i know nothing about. I tried every means to get him back but to no avail, all my efforts proved abortive. I was even contemplating suicide. On a lucky day when i was browsing the internet, i came across some amazing testimonies about Dr. Joromi on how he has helped a lot of people with his powerful love spells. I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you. If you are in need of help please contact Dr Joromi now on his website: https://www.joromispells.com and you can also reach him with his email: [email protected] and here is his WhatsApp number which you can also use to reach him +2348138695387 Thank you Dr Joromi.
