Freedom is fragile and can be taken away with the simple passing of a law. Micheal Geist examines three proposed bills that would drastically reduce freedom in Canada and would directly contravene of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The stupid thing is that, if these laws were passed, they wouldn't accomplish anything except to take away our freedom. The laws would force encryption into the mainstream, and once everyone is encrypting everything, the deep packet inspection becomes almost useless and the chance of detecting any criminal activity drops to zero.
Once again we have an example of how the people who make laws have no understanding of how the real world works.
