#TellVicEverything reveals everything Vic Toews never wished to know about Canadians
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews is getting bombarded with hilarious tweets and scandalous leaks on Twitter over his controversial "snoop and spy" bill that would give authorities access to citizens' name, IP address, address and phone number -- without a warrent.
Toews created a stir by insisting that opponents of his new bill (Bill C-30, the "Protecting Children From Internet Predators Act") are siding with pedophiles.
In response, #TellVicEverything began trending on Twitter today, with users revealing trivial details about their personal lives to the Minister.
Here are some picks from the bunch:
"Dear @ToewsVic: Last night I promised my wife I'd wake up early for yoga, but repeatedly snooze-buttoned instead. #TellVicEverything," tweeted MP Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau).
"Dear @ , It's a quarter after one. I'm a little drunk, and I need you now. # said Joseph Uranowski To make matters embarrassingly worse, Twitter account @Vikileaks30 is divulging details about Toews' private life, such as his divorce and spending habits, pushing the account's follower base to 7,286. Currently, the account is more popular than the Minister's actual twitter account.
"Vic wants to know about you. Let's get to know Vic. Send your Vikileaks to [email protected]," reads its profile message.
The Minister tweeted in defiance that he won't stoop to the kinds of "gutter politics" being used to oppose his bill. The government, meanwhile, hinted on Wednesday that it's willing to consider tweaking the bill to make it less invasive.
