Just like back home

Did Canada pass its own version of the Patriot Act while I wasn't looking or have they simply entirely turned over the administration of their government to the US neo-cons? The Windsor Star reports.
OTTAWA - The federal cabinet will review new legislation this fall that would give police and security agencies vast powers to begin surveillance of the Internet without court authority.

The new measures would allow law-enforcement agents to intercept personal e-mails, text messages and possibly even password-secure websites used for purchasing and financial transactions.
I'm sure I don't have to tell our readers up North the implications this legislation could have on drug policy activists. Outrageous.
