The Government in your Bedroom
So episode 50 - a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.
Today we talk about the CSIS data spying and lying to the court, the RCMP's power grab, and anal intercourse... yep the government in your bedroom.
The Federal Court slammed CSIS for retaining massive amount of information secretly obtained from people who are not suspected of committing any crime. Big bother is watching - read the courts decision here.
- and -
The RCMP wants even more power and is using the media to scare Canadian's into handing over that power. I wrote about it for iPolitics.
- and -
Anal intercourse. It is illegal in Canada - well not really - but it is still in the Criminal Code. The Liberals plan to repeal the unconstitutional law - but it is the lowest hanging fruit. We wonder why the Liberal government is lacking leadership when it comes to Criminal Code reforms.
We also have some new art - it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week - from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle - serious he is crazy good - go check out his work.
