Online Rights Canada launched

This new organization has just been launched. It is jointly supported by the Canadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Its purpose is to "promote the public's interest in technology and information policy"

It currently addresses 2 issues I have mentioned before - the "lawful access" surveillance proposal (they refer to is as "awful access"), and the copyright reform bill.

Both of those bills died before the election call, but it is inevitable that they will be brought back.

These issues have the potential to affect all Canadians - and are worth understanding - so I recommend taking a look and adding their RSS feed.
