Bell has announced that they will be collecting all manner of data from ALL of their communications lines. Landline, mobile, computer, what you watch on television... ALLL of it. Given the myriad different communication tools they offerings they have a unique opportunity to cross reference every bit of data you give them. They will be on par with DHS in the US related to their customers. Scary stuff. Here is a link to a recent news story.

Somehow I am not surprised. I am not a Bell fan but have no alternative than to use some of their services. :(
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Let's face it.  Any type of communications device regardless of the provider is collecting data whether they admit it or not.

Why should I care?  I'm not doing anything wrong  ;)
If you have no sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look on without doing anything.
