In the face of growing surveillance of travellers, many Canadians are being caught in the web of government watch lists. Civil liberties groups and major labour unions are pooling their efforts to document how these measures are violating our privacy and mobility rights.
The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG – FIPA is a member) wants to hear stories from travellers describing their encounters with airlines, transport and border officials in Canada and the U.S. The website explains the goals of the project, and allows people to tell their stories. Individuals can also contact the project via a toll-free number or by mail. The ICLMG and its partners will not release or publish any personal information without prior consent.
