+ - Canadian Police Need New Internet Surveillance Tools->

danomac writes: Police agencies in Canada want to have better tools to do online surveillance. Bill C-30 was to include new legislation (specifically Section 34) that would give police access to information without a warrant. This can contain your name, your IP address, and your mobile phone number.

This, of course, creates all sorts of issues with privacy online. The police themselves say they have concerns with Section 34. Apparently the way it is worded it is not just police that can request the information, but any government agent. Would you trust the government with this kind of power?
