Lawful Access

Please listen to this podcast.

I did, and sent the following letter to Minister Van Loan.

You have not struck the right balance. You have listened too much to the Police. You say you have consulted with industry. Which industries? Rogers? Bell? Telus? they are not innovators. They are not the new economy. Please talk to internet entrepreneurs. They are much more in touch with reality.

Your party was elected to protect individuals, not centralize government authority and power.

I listened to your interview on search engine. It is clear you are woefully out of touch with reality. If I could offer you a bit of advice, fire the staffer that briefed you for that interview. Even if you have no idea what you are talking about, you need to be able to fake it.
