Canadian Public Employees Sue To Stop Invasive New Security Check System

Without public consultation, the Canadian conservative government is introducing a new system of “security checks” that will require every public sector employee to submit to fingerprinting, credit and criminal checks, a sweeping search of Internet use, and a search of records of mental health incidents, according to the National Post. A public sector union is suing to stop it.

The lawsuit launched by the 35,000-member Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada described the new security check system as “unduly invasive” of personal privacy. A leader of the union told the National Post that, “This could be particularly worrying for long-term employees not getting along with a boss, who the government feels are out of step with its agenda, because of people they once associated with, a bad debt, or being treated for mental illness years earlier that surfaced under the new process.”

    What is next, a chip under your skin? We are living in sick times and we’ve been warned that they were coming by Orwell and others. Sad that we have to face in nonetheless.

    • “What is next, a chip under your skin?” That’s what the “conspiracy theorists,” and, if I recall correctly, a movie producer, Aaron Russo, who was friends with a Rockefeller claimed. I think this is the right youtube video:

      Who knows? Maybe they’re right? The US founding fathers warned of us of these “people,” also. Thomas Jefferson:

      “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies…”

      Sure seems we may have that evil world government the bible also warned would come, taking shape, or already in charge?

      “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
      George Orwell

      • I’m glad the truth is finally starting to come out about antidepressant discontinuation or withdrawal syndrome, because that’s what resulted in my bipolar misdiagnosis (according to the DSM-IV-TR).

        But perhaps, the psychiatrists were once again given unwarranted credibility by inappropriate leaders, just like they were in the Nazi era? And they should rethink the wisdom of unjustly defaming, drugging, and torturing as many as possible to maintain the ‘warrior elite’ status quo? Just a theory.

  2. Security for who ? The Tyrants of course.

    Someone needs to re write the definition of “security” in the dictionary already since its meaning has changed in the last 20 years.

    Security- Double speak for more big brother and police state crap.
