The View Up Here has been talking about many campaigns in Canada from many different organizations. They all strive to expose the corruption, inform the public, and motivate people to become involved and present real alternatives. Despite the political intimidation via arms of the Government from Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee, these groups continue to grow and thrive and spread the message.

OpenMedia.ca, the Canadian member organization of OpenMedia International, has a very interesting and popular crowdsourcing campaign underway in Canada. They are asking Canadians to contribute their thoughts and ideas towards positive pro-privacy policy recommendations. A "drag and drop" feature is used to ask people to rank six key priorities. There is also a series of questions on key privacy issues that Canadians need to focus on, for their own well-being and interest.

David Christopher of OpenMedia.ca joins us again to discuss, inform and encourage Canadians to participate in this positive campaign and others that are underway and will be coming. This campaign is supported by many leading groups well known for triumphing the rights of the individual against the power of the State.

Canadian Journalists for Free Expression. International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group. Privacy & Access Council of Canada. Free Dominion. BC Freedom of Information and Privacy Association. We are not alone in wanting to defend and increase protection of the individual from the intrusion of the State.

Call in and find out how your voice can make a difference. Join David Christopher and @canadianglen, tell us what you think Canada needs (and what it doesn't need). The remainder of the show will expand on the surveillance state and what average citizens can do to combat it. Lines are open all night!
