Recorded votes

The vote on third reading of Bill C-31 (which revises the Canada Elections Act by, among other things, handing every voter's birthdate data to all Canadian political parties) took place last night. And despite warnings from the Privacy Commissioner, the NDP and others, the bill passed with the full support of the Cons, Libs and Bloc.

Which means that when people like these received unquestioned access to all the information they need to pull off systematic credit card fraud, or someone like this receives unfettered access to a list of potential victims who live alone, we'll know who decided that their own partisan interests were more important than the safety and security of Canadians at large.
