appeared on Rob Breakenridge’s Show to discuss the state of music industry. They have successfully demanded legislative reform, obtained millions in funding and now they are going after Google because they believe it provides easy access to illegal sources. Listen to or download the podcast here.
Earlier this week I appeared on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin to discuss Bill C-13. While Justice Minister Peter MacKay indicated yesterday that he hopes to pass the legislation this spring, the discussion on the show points to the concerns with the bill including how it creates immunity for voluntary disclosure of personal information without court oversight (thereby increasing the likelihood of such disclosures) and establishes a low threshold for warrants involving metadata, while only marginally addressing the legal framework to combat cyberbullying, which is already well developed. The interview is embedded below.
I appeared on the John Oakley Show to discuss Bell’s plan to mine user data. Listen to this podcast or download it here.
I appeared on CBC’s On the Coast to discuss the federal government’s plan to require cable companies to offer channels individually.
I talked to Global News about the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) handing over encryption codes to the NSA. Canada appears to have opened a backdoor for surveillance by the USA.
