Harper Hates Privacy But Loves Kittens

04/30/2011

Yesterday I posted about the Canadian Conservatives’ environmental record. Canadian readers of Batshite might also be interested in knowing that OpenMedia (whose role in the efforts to stop Internet metering I wrote about here here and here) recently sent each political party in Canada a survey about their Internet policies.

Every party answered except the Conservatives, who recently promised to pass a bill within 100 days of receiving a majority that will grant them sweeping powers of surveillance over the Internet and force Internet Service Providers to redesign their networks in order to allow real-time monitoring.

Maybe that’s why they didn’t answer the survey.

On the other hand, Stephen Harper is able to refrain from strangling small animals long enough to take a picture , as is evidenced by the image above. I mean, it doesn’t look photoshopped.
