Default legislation for electronic surveillance likely coming



Privacy watchdog sounds alarm on Conservative e-snooping legislation - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
The Harper government intends to make it easier for police to monitor Canadians’ Internet and smartphone activity – but the country’s privacy watchdog warned Thursday that Ottawa hasn’t justified what threatens to be an erosion of fundamental rights.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has confirmed in recent weeks that the Conservatives intend to revive legislation they did not manage to pass as a minority government – bills that would give police new capabilities to conduct electronic surveillance in the Internet age.
Quote:
One piece of legislation that will likely be revived, the Investigative Powers for the 21st Century Act, would have required Internet service providers to install surveillance technology on their networks.

It also would have forced mandatory disclosure of customer information on demand and without court oversight. This would obliged all ISPs to surrender customer details to the police including names, addresses, email address as well as the unique identifier number that every computer connection to the Internet is assigned
