Just watch us: The end of privacy

A good part of today's Sunday Edition on CBC Radio One is all about privacy. Here's a snapshot of the show:


"This morning, we broadcast a public forum, recorded on Monday at the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa, titled Just Watch Us - The End of Privacy. We look at the increasing use of information in our daily life by the government and businesses and whether we're willing to give up our privacy for security in this post 9/11 world.

Joining Michael were:

Senator Raynell Andreychuk, former deputy chair of the Senate's special committe on the Anti-Terrorism Act, a Progressive-Conservative from Saskatchewan, a former lawyer and judge.

Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair of Internet and E-Commerce Law, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa

Janice L. Kephart, counsel to the 9/11 Commission and expert on the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, based in Washington, D.C.

Liz McIntyre, co-author Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID (Nelson Current, 2005), based in Austin, Texas

Reid Morden, former director, CSIS, President of Reid Morden & Associates, a security consultancy group in Toronto

Jennifer Stoddart, Privacy Commissioner of Canada"
