Did Vic Toews go too far with his child porn statement?
It's the first salvo in a battle that will resume Tuesday when the government reintroduces legislation that would expand online monitoring powers.
The issue pits the desire of intelligence and law-enforcement officials to have easier access to information about Internet users against the individual's right to privacy.
Asked Monday in the House of Commons about the coming bill, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews told a Liberal MP he could either stand with the government or "with the child pornographers" prowling online.
Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart has warned against simply resurrecting a trio of previous federal bills to expand surveillance powers, citing several shortcomings.
Of particular concern to the privacy commissioner are provisions that would allow authorities access to Internet subscriber information without first getting a court's go-ahead.

( When Joe Clark was PM, we had a brouhaha in foreign affairs within 1 week when one nincompoop decided to pronounce on the proper ownership of Jerusalem. I'm reminded of Edmonton Report and stories better never made - and why GW Bush's spin coach to the PCs instituted party discipline to get a bunch of bigoted jackasses to STFU, as they were scaring the public with their hate and filth . Shades of the Diefenbaker era, the KKK and Aryan Nation.
This is still the party Canadians absolutely destroyed once in vehement rejection- and which did so poorly in the past the Liberals became wryly referred to as 'Canada's natural governing party' )
