  • Hi, and Merry Christmas. I’m honored to have the chance to speak with you and your family this year.Recently, we learned that our governments, working in concert, have created a system of worldwide mass surveillance, watching everything we do.Great Britain’s George Orwell warned us of the danger of this kind of information. The types of collection in the book—microphones and cameras, TVs that watch us—are nothing compared to what we have available today. We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go.Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person. A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves—an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem, because privacy matters. Privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.The conversation occurring today will determine the amount of trust we can place both in the technology that surrounds us and the government that regulates it. Together, we can find a better balance, end mass surveillance and remind the government that if it really wants to know how we feel, asking is always cheaper than spying.For everyone out there listening, thank you, and Merry Christmas.201501/353957。

  • Thank you, Shelly, for that kind introduction.Thank you to Suzanne Sarault for serving as our emcee today.Greetings to Chief of Defence Staff General Lawson, to Chief Warrant Officer West, to ambassadors and members of the diplomatic corps, to my colleagues from the Parliament of Canada, Royal Galipeau and Pierre Lemieux, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, honoured veterans and families, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen.As Shelly said, a century has passed now since the dull roar of the guns of August was first heard and all across Europe, the lights of peace faded.This great conflict on the other side of an ocean need not have involved us.But then, as now, when our friends and the values we share with them are threatened, Canadians do not turn away.So it was that in 1914, Canadian and Newfoundland volunteers – Newfoundland being then a separate Dominion – accepted this call to arms as a duty.At the end of the summer of 1914, Canadians left behind factories, fields, forests and fisheries.They left their homes, shops, offices and schools.Men by the tens of thousands signed up to fight.Men like Leo Clarke, Frederick Hall and Robert Shankland, who all lived on Pine Street in Winnipeg.Men like brothers Bernard and Eric Ayre and their cousins Gerald and Wilfrid of St. John’s, Newfoundland.Men like George Vanier of Montréal, a young lawyer who had considered joining the priesthood before hearing the call of duty.And women like Beatrice McNair from Vancouver, one of 2,500 nursing sisters who served overseas.The first Canadians left for Europe that October.Many thought they’d be home for Christmas.Some of them actually worried that they’d get over there too late to do their part.As we all know, they were terribly, terribly wrong.Though the commitment to war was uncertain, over 600,000 Canadians fought to defend our country, only eight million strong at the time.The mud, the blood and the sacrifices that marked those years left more than a third of these Canadians dead or wounded.Forgive me if I do not dwell on these numbers, the bitter harvest of suffering and death.We have had a hundred years to contemplate this war.Much has been written on this subject.201504/367606。
