927. Rick’s Rant

I spent a good hour watching his rants. And he was VERY spot-on with this topic. As a Communications minor and OpenMedia.ca supporter, this bill is bull. The threat of this bill has been around since last year, but it did not cause as much stupor as it has recently. And that’s because they changed its name. I mean, WHY wouldn’t you approve a bill that goes against child pornography? At least, that’s what the bill’s title reads, but it really just gives the government a reason to invade your privacy without a warrant. It’s the 21st century and this whole new technology hasn’t been understood completely yet. Really, Vic Toews, really? 

Here’s OpenMedia.ca’s petition against this bill.

You should watch Rick Mercer’s show - he make politics sound more than a bunch of wealthy people yelling at each other and not making sense. And show some love for the CBC. 

(I posted this because I HAD to look somewhere other than my paper, which is currently in the form of a blank page.)
