We’ve compiled a video of highlights from our panel discussion "Should Surveillance Scare You?
” featuring Toronto Star
national security reporter Michelle Shephard, Citizen Lab’s Christopher Parsons and University of Ottawa professor and national security expert Wesley Wark.
If you missed the event, this video is the perfect way to learn the facts and arguments surrounding surveillance in Canada. Specifically, the video features an overview of the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) and the nebulous scope of its legal powers, Canada’s proposed anti-bullying legislation Bill C-13, the Supreme Court’s pivotal decision in favour of the right to anonymity online in R v. Spencer, and Citizen Lab’s fascinating initiative to uncover and limit the amount of information Canadian telecommunications providers store about consumers.
