1. I agree that's a problem, but What does that have to do with Idaho banning CRT in schools?  I'm not saying there should never be limits on free speech.

2. Criminals sure that's fine.  You seem to be changing goal posts here and creating strawmen. 

3. What about the purchases of ordinary Canadians that have done no wrong?  Canadians are protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms Section 8, which exists to prevent EXACTLY these kinds of government oversteps: "Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure."
1. Augh, sorry I forgot the context over days.  It's worse because the government is directly banning the teaching of an idea that, in itself, doesn't do what they say it does.  It would be like a government banning the teaching of 'false science' and then banning evolution to be taught.  Come to thinnk of it, that could be next.
2. Separate topic but if they can track us easily then they can find criminals.  I'm really more and more ok with a common openness as a solution to social problems.  So I'm a pariah, I don't care.
3. A faceless bureaucrat can look at your VISA charges if they think you may have bought child ****.  I don't care if it help them clean up the garbage quickly.  Kind of like 'free speech' changes with the internet so does 'search and seizure'...

They have an 'eye in the sky' that can hover over a city and provide 100% digital camera coverage.  For sure a cop would use it to track his cheating girlfriend.  Terrible affront to her privacy.  Meanwhile, the city can also track every single crime.  Tradeoff ?
