Online spying, "foreign radicals" and faux patriotism: Conservatives bare draconian teeth
“Let's not talk about statistics. Let's talk about danger.”
Scary words from someone in charge of Canada's public safety.
Coming only days before Public Safety Minister Vic Toews lumped critics of his warrantless online spying bill with “child pornographers,” many thought that global hacker group Anonymous went too far in leaking his divorce papers on Twitter.
Today, Mr. Traditional Family Values (he's a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage) got an even nastier taste of privacy invasion. Several of my sources forwarded a Youtube video, in which Anonymous alleged the marriage-defending MP had a lengthy affair with his childrens' former (and much younger) babysitter, Stacey Meek, now a staffer for two elected Conservatives in Manitoba. VO became the first media outlet to report on the video. The smear is, of course, unconfirmed – and needless to say, the minister is miffed.
