I was recently invited to contribute an article to the IEEE Security & Privacy magazine on the Canadian response to the USA Patriot Act. Here's the abstract:
The Canadian Response to the USA Patriot Act
Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, US authorities have spent untold millions of dollars guarding their frontiers to regulate what gets into the country. On the other side of the border, many Canadian jurisdictions have turned their thoughts to regulating what information flows southward into the US. This isn't out of concern about terrorism but rather about the US response to it.

I think I reserved the right to publish the article on the blog after the publication by IEEE, but I'll have to track down that release .... stay tuned.
