Message-ID: <email@example.com> Organization: Toronto MetroNet: Digital Freedom - Canada's Freedom of Speech BBS - 416-462-3327 Lines: 93 We are asking all freedom-loving Canadians to fill out the following petition and send it in to the Solicitor General of Canada to protest the Canadian Governments heavy-handed assault of personal liberties under the guise of "National Security" The Canadian Security "Intelligence" Act is a very oppressing peice of legislation, and has no place in a so-called 'free country' like Canada. The second part of the petition is asking the government to stop spending millions investigating political opponents like the Reform Party, Unions, the Heritage Front and Ernst Zundel. These groups represent no serious risk to Canadian Security and is only a "make-work" project for bored, left over hacks from the Cold War. The third part of the Petition is in regards to the Security Intelligence Review Committee, who are supposed to be an independent review committee set-up to oversee CSIS activities and ensure they are making the proper decisions. They have been judged in Federal Court as being biased against Ernst Zundel, and have for a long time been the lapdogs of CSIS, simply rubber-stamping their actions as correct. We need your support! Stand up and fight for our last remaining rights before big brother legislates them away from under us! Thanks -Marc Lemire ----[Start]------------------------------------------ To: The Hon. Herb Gray Solicitor General of Canada Fax: (613) 952-2240 E-Mail: remote-printer.Herbert_Gray@16139522240.iddd.tpc.int The excessive powers in the Canadian Security Intelligence Act are a direct threat to my personal civil liberty and to the civil liberties of all Canadians. I call upon you as Solicitor General to reduce the powers in the Canadian Security Intelligence Act, thereby ensuring that Canadians of all walks of life, may not be subjected to: *Electronic bugging *Surreptitious searches *Mail opening *Invasion of confidential records *Invasion of privacy *Human Spying in any form, unless at the very least the activities of the individual include serious security-related breaches of the law. I also call upon you to set-up a Royal Commission to investigate the Canadian Security Intelligence Agency's spying on political and social dissidents. I am referring to the bungled Heritage Front affair, and more recently to the Ernst Zundel persecution. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service has little if any reason to spy on constitutionally protected political dissidents, unless they are just like what, 2 CSIS agents named "Angela and Peter" told Michael Rothe [Feb 7, 1996 - recorded via video camera] during an interrogation ...... "We are the Political Police" Have we as a nation denigrated ourselves to the point where we now spy and harass politically incorrect enemies and political opponents like the Reform party? I also call upon you to set-up a completely independent body to oversee the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, which unlike SIRC, is actually completely independent, and liable to the Canadian people through the House of Parliament. I expect to hear from you on this matter soon.
