trudeau is an embarrassment to canada. no to the whole coffee thingy (it really is shitty) although a lot of hosers do seem to like it even though IT'S NOT EVEN CANADIAN OWNED! more starbucks anyway if you look past your ugly american nose.                            

JORDAN PETERSON FOR PRIME MINISTER!

BTW keep your illegals from crossing at the 49th parallel. the point of having a nation state is that it is defined, among other things, by BORDERS. cheap american double standard. surprise.

thank you and i'm sorry.

Canadian Government Looking To Step Up Domestic Surveillance, Scale Back Intelligence Oversight

from the if-you-like-your-surveillance-state,-you-can-keep-it dept

Canada has its own PATRIOT Act — one that was supposed to be fixed by its new heartthrob PM, Justin Trudeau. As Cory Doctorow points out at Boing Boing, Trudeau promised to fix it in post, but that's not what's happening.

Back in 2015, Canada's failing, doomed Conservative government introduced Bill C-51, a far-reaching mass surveillance bill that read like PATRIOT Act fanfic; Justin Trudeau, leader of what was then a minority opposition party, whipped his MPs to vote for it, allowing it to pass, and cynically admitting that he was only turning this into law because he didn't want to give the Conservatives a rhetorical stick to beat him with in the next election — he promised that once he was Prime Minister, he'd fix it.

Now the Trudeau government has introduced Bill C-59, which is meant to correct those deficits. Instead, it makes them far, far worse.

Security research group Citizen Lab have done the heavy lifting Trudeau seems uninterested in doing. A comprehensive report  detailing everything wrong with the bill (along with 54 recommendations for fixes) has been published by the group. In it, Citizen Lab notes C-59 expands domestic surveillance, lowers standards for surveillance deployment, and trims back government oversight.

No, it doesn't. The CWB ended in 2015 (which is almost where the previous graph ends), though it was undergoing change a few years (2011) before.

Naked suspects in Alberta kidnapping may have sipped trippy tea

From a related article, "The family members were reluctant to share their experience because of the ongoing court case, but they told The Canadian Press they know the accused as neighbours. They are all members of the same Jehovah's Witnesses church." {#Eek}

Very cool.  The design is terrific.

I love the fact that the brother-inventors are ethnic Chinese from Richmond.  The background story is wonderful
 
This is such a great idea, I never expect to have one.  Why?  Because people will hoard them.
