As you likely know, the Canadian government’s proposed online spying laws are dangerous. Instead of making Internet users safer, they reduce our security and increase the probability of cybercrime. If the online spying bills pass, we will become victims of the government’s inability to see beyond their immediate worries. Harper's poorly thought-out spying bill can, and will, create more problems than solutions for Canada's growing Internet based society.
Germany has become a prime example of the worrisome shortcomings of the online spying scheme. The German government has come under fire as accusations of their use of possibly illegal (and highly insecure) surveillance software have surfaced.
