inflamed writes "The Canadian government has announced a consultation period concerning its secretive plans to 'integrate' the US-Canada border systems. Last on the list of topics for consultation, but foremost in importance, is the issue of cybersecurity. With the deadline looming (June 3), it is important that informed individuals take note of this consultation and give their opinions."

    Dear Canada,

    Suggestion #1.: There is no "cyberspace". This is techno-market-babble. Did you look at the security of telephony over the past 75 years as demanding a need for Canada to "secure voice-space?" Of course not. The notion is absurd. Be sure that this cyberspace usage is like other tautological misdirection - designed to empty your wallet.

    Now that you've considered our opinion on the matter, think to what other ends you could put this re-evaluation framework. What about examining the suspect logical underpinnings of a "War on Terror" or "Western Civilisation"? There no end to the money you could save by rejecting jingoisms of foreign-origin - and again have Canada serve the actual interests of real Canadians.

    Your suggestion, like every other opinion given through that site, is just going to end up in the trash anyways.

    They'll say "we consulted with Canadians" and then go and do whatever they wanted to in the first place.
