I would not have to drink another glass of wine tonight to calm my nerves, if I knew that you would send this far and wide!

I agree.  
See  Government orders federal departments to keep tabs on all demonstrations across country
When you read it, think of:  "Canada's Secret Billion Dollar Spy Palace" (Oct 2013).  The link to it is included in the posting in case you don't know about it. 
I wrote a note of thanks to journalist David Pugliese.  He has been a stalwart over many years.  Without him, Canadians would be even more in the dark than we are.
