Ewww...something smells rotten

Maybe it's this: Ottawa demands greater wiretap access

"The federal government is demanding that the telecommunications industry build a wiretapping capacity into their networks that would allow authorities to conduct round-the-clock surveillance on the e-mail, Internet or phone use of more than 8,000 people at a time, sources say.
[...] "In essence, the bill would require telephone, wireless or Internet-service providers to gradually build into their networks a capacity to duplicate their clients' Internet and phone use and transmit the data to the police."

Thanks (I think?) to my husband for passing along the Globe article.
