SS Forum: Online Surveillance – Micheal Vonn in Conversation

Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm

Government agencies and departments hold an increasing amount of your electronic information. So too do private companies. Who has access to your information, and within what limits?
What is the state of Canadian law regarding surveillance and data-sharing? Are privacy laws out of date? What can we do to protect ourselves?
To help us answer these questions, civil liberties champion Micheal Vonn joins us in conversation. Vonn is this province’s leading expert on privacy, national security, policing, surveillance and free speech.
Vonn has been the Policy Director of the BC Civil Liberties Association since 2004. She is also an Adjunct Professor in both the UBC Faculty of Law and the UBC School of Library, Archival and Information Studies.
Is your freedom being compromised? What can you do to protect it? Find out from someone who has devoted her career to protecting privacy and other fundamental human rights: Micheal Vonn!
