Anonymous Hits Canadian Cops & Lawmakers Over Internet Surveillance Bill

The Conservative government has called its controversial new electronic surveillance bill the Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act as it attempts to win support for the planned laws that would give authorities unprecedented new powers to monitor the online and phone habits of Canadians.-Online surveillance bill ‘will put an electronic prisoner’s bracelet on every Canadian’

Notice how the power grabbers for more state tyranny always use the "protect the children" ruse? It's the same in the US. So a law that allows nearly unlimited spying by a government on all its own citizens becomes a bill to simply stop "online predators" (we'll ignore for a moment the fact that the biggest predator by far is the state itself). Canadian "Safety Minister" (what the hell is a safety minister? T.C., you got some 'splaining to do!) Vic Toews even went so far as to make a Bret Alan style comment, saying of an opponent of his fascist legislation, "He can either stand with us or with the child pornographers."

Sounds kind of like "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists", doesn't it?
