  1. sorry for the crossposting, did some research into Privacy protection in
    relation to computer using, and authorised collection procedures.

    The following may (hopefully) interest the majority of those concerned about
    their rights to information given while online:

    Canadian Criminal Amendment Act (1985)
    digitaldefence.ca/Canada_CriminalCode_S184.html

    closely paraphrased into layman's language, the Act reads: An agent of the
    State may intercept a communication if
    a) consent was given, or
    b) there are reasonable grounds to believe a risk of bodily harm.
    c) the intent is to prevent bodily harm.

    Contents are inadmissible for evidence except where actual, threatened, or
    attempted harm is alleged, and for which a warrant was obtained.

    Limitations placed upon lawfully collected evidence makes it clear otherwise
    potentially incriminating evidence for crimes outside of the allegation, are
    to be deleted by the Agent.

    Unlawful collection of information will result in prosecution not exceeding
    five years.

    This Act is subject to supercession should Martial Law be declared.
