Update2: Is the CHRC in violation of the privacy act?
Update: Jay Currie answers the call to arms:
BCF talks about bloggers using FOI – I would also suggest that anyone who has commented on any blog on any side of this issue needs to know if they are on the coward Lynch’s list. We do not know how widely this list has been shared and how the people on it have been characterized. Has it been shared with the RCMP? Or CSIS? Or the PCO? Have people who have blogged in favour of free speech or commented in that direction been characterized as being of the “far right”?
How dare the coward Lynch and the CHRC engage in a political spying operation in Canada?
How dare they?
Original Post below:
Jennifer Lynch has been making a list and checking it twice stating: I’m sure I have 1,200, certainly several hundred of these things,” Referring to blog posts and news reports she claims have misinformed the public about the benevolence of the Thought Police at the CHRC.
My suggestion – file an Access to Information request with the CHRC, instructions below. I’m kinda lookin forward to seeing my own posts redacted in the CHRC’s reply.
The form may be accessed here. Instructions are provided.
Ultimately your request will be forwarded along with a cheque or money-order in the value of $5.00 to:
