Many Canadians are aware that government agencies conduct mass surveillance using phone and online data. Fewer are aware of being under constant surveillance in their everyday lives. We cannot walk downtown, attend a class, pay with a credit card, hop on an airplane, or make a phone call without data being captured and processed. Where does it go? Who makes use of it? Is loss of control of our personal data the price paid for social media and electronic communications, or do we tolerate a system that makes us visible ― and thus vulnerable ― to others as never before? Experts from a seven-year multi-disciplinary research project explain how surveillance is expanding ― mostly unchecked ― into every facet of our lives, and what to do about it.
