Anti-terror legislation passed Wednesday will enable preventive arrests, meaning Canadians can be held for up to three days without charge. And it opens the door to investigative hearings, where people can be compelled to testify under threat of detention.
The Conservative government says the measures contained in Bill S-7, the Combating Terrorism Act, are vital to assist law enforcement officials to foil unfolding terror plots.
The bill passed 183-93 with the Liberals joining the Conservatives to support the measures. New Democrats opposed it.
what a crock of scheisse!!!
CISPA is a cybersecurity Bill that is currently being considered by the united states goverment the “goal” of this proposed bill is to help identify and neutralize cyber security threats by strengthening the bond between the private sector and the goverment.
Now the methods in which this is expected to work is by allowing the goverment to take information and all forms of data from private sector companies, and to give non judicial entities access to the private information of US citizens and share that among eachother and the goverment.
So not only the goverment will be able to get peoples personal information indiscriminately but SO WILL PRIVATE COMPANIES who they affiliate with. ALL WITHOUT WARRANTS OR JUDICIAL OVERSIGHT.
