I am sure everyone by now has heard about the controversial new Bill C-30 named the Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act that the Stephen Harper Conservative Government has proposed.

In this day and age where just the slightest mistake can get the average person's private business public by the click of a mouse, protecting ones Privacy is of the utmost importance. The police cannot enter a person's home unless they have a search warrant, how then can they be allowed to enter our private conversations and internet portals without the same. That is what this bill suggests, that it will now have the rights to monitor whomever and whenever they so choose. Effectively being able to enter ones home without the need for a warrant and invading our privacy.

For obvious reasons there has been great opposition to this. After comments from the Public Safety Minister Vic Toews  suggesting those who do not support the bill are standing behind child pornography, #TellVicEverything has been trending on Twitter. Where people across Canada are sharing everything and anything to prove a point.

After all of the controversy over the last couple days the Conservative government has come out saying they will look at re-evaluating.

Let's hope the Opposition government and Privacy Commission can put a stop to this!
