(Un)Lawful Access Legislation: an Ottawa Forum

The Rideau Institute is proud to be sponsoring, “(Un)Lawful Access Legislation: an Ottawa Forum,” on February 8, 2012.

The forum will discuss the proposed ‘Lawful Access’ legislation, which would require every phone and internet provider to permit authorities to collect private data from anyone, at anytime, without requiring a warrant to do so.

The event will include a documentary screening, a discussion with a panel of experts in the field of lawful access legislation, as well as responses from federal parties on the proposed legislation and discussion.

It will be held from 7 to 10 pm, at the St. Paul University Amphitheatre.
