The current government of Canada is pushing to enact a bill that would "require telecommunications companies to hand over customer information to police without a court order."

Naturally, there's a deluge of backlash against this attempt to legalize the warrantless invasion of privacy.

The government is taking an extreme defensive stance. Harper's senior ministers, who quipped "[you] can either stand with us or with the child #*$!ographers."

Canada is currently ruled by a "majority government", which means the reigning party (Conservatives) have the ability to vote in any law, without opposition. Due to the odd electoral system in Canada, a party can achieve this majority status without actually getting a majority of the votes in an election. So despite the outrage of the opposition parties and the dissent of citizens, this bill is likely to pass into law.
