Budget Day Action will urge MPs to side with taxpayers against CSEC waste; group warns spying on innocent Canadians hurts democracy at home and Canada's reputation abroad
VANCOUVER, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Over 50 major organizations and tens of thousands of Canadians are uniting today behind a new campaign to tell MPs to stop wasting billions on Canada's hugely expensive online spying apparatus. The campaign is part of a worldwide day of action - the Day We Fight Back - against online spying and is being launched on federal Budget Day. It is expected that MPs will be asked to approve the rapidly growing annual budget for Canadian spy agency CSEC (Communications Security Establishment Canada).
