CBC Interview on Bill C-30

I was interviewed on Wednesday, February 14th on the subject of Bill C-30 “Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act” by Chris Walker on CBC’s Daybreak South.

For CBC listeners new to Secure by Design – Welcome!

The issue of C-30 is more complex than 5 minutes of airtime permits.

The most important thing is for citizen’s to take get involved and informed about this and other legislation that will regulate the use of the Internet for our children and grand-children. The good news is that the Government appears to be listening to Canadians, and has indicated that C-30 could be changed. We need to keep raising awareness and talking about this and other legislation.

Also worthy of scrutiny are Bill’s C-11, the “Copyright Modernization Act”, and Bill C-12, ironically named Safeguarding Canadians’ Personal Information Act”. Bill C-12 contains amendments to PIPEDA to allow for ISP’s to turn subscriber identity over to Government authorities. Here are some links on the subject:
