The Harper government’s new cyberbullying legislation includes little-noticed provisions that would allow police to remotely gain entry to computers and track cellphone users’ movements, privacy experts warn.

Bill C-13, being studied by the House of Commons justice committee this week, is described by the Conservatives as cyberbullying legislation, but will dramatically expand the reach of police, giving them “the power to remotely hack into computers, mobile devices, or cars in order to track location or record metadata,” according to the director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.

    A neocon right wing government uses legitimate concerns to try to increase their own powers… shocking.
