Now What (and Especially WHO) Will Vic Toews Watch?

With all the bad news coming out of Canadian politics - dysfunctional Parliament, an arrogant, indifferent, and hard-rightwing prime minister - great to have some good news. The people spoke out, and won. On internet surveillance, Toews brought forward draconian, Big Brother style proposals with Bill C-30. Now Conservatives have backed off this after HUGE public backlash. The CONS tried Bush style "you're either wish us or against us" scare tactics. People didn't buy it and pushed back.

A very real victory against a draconian proposal by Harper CONS, a real victory by and for the Canadian people.
