Orwell described it more than half a century ago; the surveillance society, replete with human and automated watchers, eyeing every move made by everyone. Most Canadian kids read George Orwell's 1984 in junior high, but for a new generation of British Columbia's students, past is prologue, as their public schools sprout mounted camera systems within and without. Now, the B.C. Liberal government has slipped a little provision into an amendment bill that would make it easier for school boards to increase the number and functions of cameras in B.C. schools.

It's a prospect the BC Civil Liberties Association finds worrying. The BCCLA has filed a submission with the Legislature urging Bill 20 be dropped. Micheal Vonn is Policy Director at the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association, and an Advisory Board Member for Privacy International. She is a former Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of British Columbia and currently serves as Adjunct Professor at UBC's School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies. Micheal Vonn in the first half.

And; Clearly, the days of Canada's moral stance on the world stage are over. Even as Israel's war crimes and crimes against humanity pile up the federal, and provincial governments are beavering away to strengthen "cultural and economic" ties with the international scofflaw. Ontario's premier, Dalton McGuinty says he will visit Israel later this month, while Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu is slated to to make the first visit of a sitting Israeli prime minister to Canada in more than sixteen years.
