Hi everybody - please come join us either in-person or virtually.

15 March 2023 @ the Milieux Institute, Concordia University, Montreal

12 noon - 13h30 (lunch time seminar)

The scoop:

In recent years, calls for “surveillance reform” have been voiced by 
activist and academics alike. What, however, are the surveillance 
capabilities of the Canadian state? How can we speak of reform and 
regulation if we do not know what it is we want to change? In this talk, 
Professor Evan Light (Glendon College, York University) discusses his 
efforts to document the surveillance capabilities of the Canadian state 
from municipal to national. Through filing hundreds of 
access-to-information requests and extensive legal research, the 
Deobfuscating State Surveillance in Canada project aims to build the 
foundation for changing the ways we are policed, building up activist, 
academic and journalistic research tools along the way.
