Months of surveillance-related leaks from U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden have fuelled an international debate over privacy, spying, and Internet surveillance. Much of the focus has centered on the role of the U.S. National Security Agency, yet there is an important Canadian side to the story. The Communications Security Establishment Canada, the Canadian counterpart to the NSA, has played an active role in surveillance activities both at home and abroad, raising a host of legal and policy questions that have gone largely ignored.
From the effectiveness of accountability and oversight programs to the legal issues raised by metadata collection to the privacy challenges surrounding new technologies, this book explores cutting-edge issues torn from the headlines with a uniquely Canadian perspective.
