Anonymous warns Vic Toews to scrap Internet surveillance bill or face more "skeletons in his closet"
The news only gets worse for that champion of warrantless Internet surveillance, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews.
This past weekend, the hacker group Anonymous threatened to expose more "skeletons in his closet" if the Conservative government doesn't scrap its copyright reform and "lawful access" bills.
In a video posted on YouTube, Anonymous states:
We warned you not to force your abhorrent spying legislation onto the Canadian people.
You did not heed our warnings.
Now you will be exposed for the hypocrite that you are: A man who believes registering a lethal weapon is an unfair invasion of privacy, but demands that the public's information be logged for use by the authorities. A man who declares marriage and the family to be sacred institutions, but commits adultery and impregnates his mistress, and then abandons his own child. A man who demands his country spy on the Canadian people's private activities, but demands a parliamentary investigation when fully accessible public records about his own personal life are exposed.
Mr. Toews, you are now literally a joke in the eyes of the internet, the Canadian public, and the world.
Anonymous goes on to declare: "Let this be a warning to any politician who attempts to censor, control, or hamper public use of the internet in Canada, or anywhere else on this planet."
Toews sent an open letter to his Manitoba constituents over the weekend, informing them that police have been asked to investigate the "extensive personal attack" on himself in the wake of Bill C-30's introduction.
