BCLA has added its name and support to the “Open letter from civil society organizations: Commit to transparency in your National Security consultation” put together by the OpenMedia folks.  The open letter goes to Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Jodi Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada asking that they ensure any future legislation that amends Bill C-51 addresses the ongoing shortcomings in privacy and digital security. BCLA has already sent a letter articulating the Associations concerns in this matter to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

(I note that BCLA has not yet been added to the list of signatories but am assured that it will be in the next update)
