Should national policy be built on anecdote and control or empiricism and participation?

From Open Media:

Canadians should be consulted before the government enables expensive and invasive spying plans that affect our lives. That’s why we’re asking Canadians to come together in creating a pro-privacy plan to shape rules that work for all of us.

What else is there to say? Someone shot a soldier. The further extension of the police state should not be justified on this basis. Citizens should not be treated as possible criminals first in a “nothing to hide nothing to worry” kind of environment.

Privacy matters. What is the PMO up to these days? That is a more important matter for public security than measures which will expand legislation which permits extensive spying of the government on people without justification or paper trails.
