Proposed Canadian legislation sign now

I wish to petition the installment of unconstitutional laws being formulated by the canadian government. In this legislation, the government, intends to force telecommunications companies to increase "crimefighting" capabilities. The following exerpts are from an article found at this link http://sympaticomsn.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20051011/wiretapping_051011
"Ottawa seeks wiretap access to spy on criminals
CTV.ca News Staff"

"The Lawful Access Bill, which will be introduced in the House of Commons next month, requires telecommunications companies to install high-tech equipment capable of intercepting exchanges."

"The new technology would give police and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Canada's spy agency, the ability to intercept the e-mail, Internet chat, telephone and cell phone conversations of thousands of people at a time."

"The United States has already adopted similar legislation."

"In May, federal Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart raised concerns about the proposed legislation with Justice Minister Irwin Cotler."

"This combination could result in law enforcement agencies being able to gain access to far more information about our personal lives than they have in the past."

"We remain sceptical about the need for these potentially intrusive and far-reaching measures."

"Despite higher perceived security alert levels since the 9-11 terrorist attacks, applications for judicial wiretap orders in Canada have declined over the last three years, from a high of 180 in 2002, to just 127 last year."

If the applications for wiretaps have declined in the years after 9/11, then why is it necessary for legislation to give police more wiretapping authority. This is an american law being passed in Canada. We must protect our civil rights and not allow the Amercan war machine to impose laws on our society. Canadians have no need for this law, it does not suit who we are as a nation.
