The RCMP is using spyware to hack the devices of Canadians
In a disclosure reminiscent of 2013, when Edward Snowden revealed that the American NSA was spying on Americans en masse, the RCMP has just announced that it uses spyware that can remotely control the camera and microphone of target devices.
The RCMP claims that they are forced to use these tools when encrypted messaging apps such as Signal present roadblocks to them, but do we really trust them? After they lied about the worst massacre in Canadian history?
This sets a dangerous precedent for civil liberties in Canada, and I have no doubt there will be further lawsuits over this. We are filing an ATIP request to find out if the RCMP used this technology on the Freedom Convoy protestors, as it is unclear at the moment.
Please sign our petition to fire RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki here, and maybe we can finally get some accountability for an organization that has gone completely off the rails.
Keep fighting for what is right,
