Most of you guys need to learn to write properly. You guys look like idiots. Make no mistake, I'm NOT a gun grabbing socialist.
It's just that writing properly is a HUGELY important skill, and I hate to see it when people lake that skill. If you cannot write properly, there is a good chance you'll be labeled as an idiot. We don't want that to happen.
But I digress. You CANNOT, in any way, TAKE AWAY TECHNOLOGY THAT ALREADY EXISTS. Guns exist. It's better to use them correctly against those who wish good people harm, than to give up our guns and let people rob, rape and murder us.
Same situation with the plate and facial recognition technology. Except using facial recognition software on government employees will not stop tyranny. *But*, for every technology there is a reverse. What this means, is eventually, we'll discover a technology that mostly negates the effect of recognition software.
Possible counter-technologies that I can think of are:
-Ultrabright lights that work only outside the visible spectrum. (You can't see them, but they blind the cameras)
-Cracking into the system, or otherwise physically disabling it.
-Masks. Criminals and other fugitives have used masks many times in the past to evade recognition.
It's impossible to be the tyrant of an ever-vigilant people.

LOL Dave! You are right. Some idiot will soon make it illegal to have a dirty car!
That is why I'm advocating learning what rule of law actually is.
Statute is not law. Our so called "law makers" are now acting outside of their own rules.
These are dangerous times where ignorance and force are beginning to rule.
In the meantime, I will stick to mud. If public "servant" starts to abuse me I will seize their bond Nothing seems to work in this effed up matrix except money.

What do you mean, Watching? Mud? Do you mean mud on your license plate to cover it? Before you know it, it will be illegal to have a dirty car!

Well, there's always mud....the more these arseholes push the more we push back. Licenses are only for commercial "motorvehicles". Why are we all using government approved plates when we don't need to? Go read Highway safety ACT for yourself. Just remember, include one excludes all other. Now look at defintion of Act...what it includes is all that it applies to.
c'mon people....let's get with it and learn.

You've got that right Bayonet. Turdeau hugged and kissed Castro and wished that he could drive unimpeded across Kanada with armoured vehicles and machine guns, just like his hero. He hated the fact that "PEASANTS" could actually enjoy our National Parks. He gave us the finger more than once and blatantly stole from us with PETRO SCAM and other thieving plots right up until the Goodale/Martin Income Trust Scam. If the rat-faced "green tree forg" gets in power, Alberta and Western Kanada will be toast. NEP will look like a walk in the park.
As for the French, there never was a more cowardly country than France. Hitler said shit and the French asked "how much?" If tens of thousands of Canadians hadn't died on the beaches of "NORWAY" (as Martin put it - asshole didn't even know what NORMANDY was) the French would be speaking German today.

Mark we had a PM like stalin or moa-his name was pierre elliot trudeau althiugh he did not openly butcher people he caused enough pain and suffering on the the people of kanada that lasts to this day and make no mistake about it had todays technology been available to him back during the FLQ crisis we probably still be under military law.

The real danger here is the potential for abuse. While I want uninsured drivers and other idiots off the road too, this technology has the potential to be used against all of us. Can you imagine if a Stalin or Hitler-like dictator came into power here in Canada and created a whole new set of laws that were unjust. Now these cameras and computers could be used to keep us all in line. Spies would be everywhere and people who didn`t follow all the new rules would"disappear" in the night.The French built the Marginot line in France to defend the country. The Nazi`s simply went around it and then captured it and used it for themselves. This new technology may one day enslave us and our children.Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Right you are 375 and Concerned. The topic on this site should ALWAYS be C-68 and the incredible danger it poses to every right and freedom we have ever had. I say HAD because C-68 has taken EVERY DAMN ONE AWAY FROM HONEST PEOPLE and made life so much more comfortable and secure FOR CRIMINALS! READ BELOW:
Harper would easily win a majority if he tabled a bill to repeal C-68 and the scumbag LIEBRAL/NDP/BLOC defeated it. This from the Calgary Harold:
Yorkton, Sask., member of Parliament Garry Breitkreuz e-mails excerpts from a speech he delivered Nov. 25 in Toronto to the Canadian Shooting Sports Association titled, Bill C-68 Still Not Repealed, So I'm Running For My 6th Term! Breitkreuz is Canada's most informed, active and dogged opponent of the national gun registry and some other alleged gun control measures contained in the bill.
In his speech, the MP outlined what has been done and still needs doing, and gave this candid summary: "We have been united in our 12-year fight to repeal Bill C-68. I will never give up, and hope you will stay with us until it's dead and gone. . . . Rest assured, we are making progress and we will keep our promises to you and the millions of gun owners in Canada. Unfortunately, it's not going to be while we're in a minority position." (Emphasis mine.)
Email Garry your letters of support. He deserves it!

Sorry this is a little off topic, but I just found this on the net. It's 5 You-Tube videos featuring Bruce Montagues' daughter. Quite interesting.

This new technology will no doubt be of assistance to Police, however, our right to privacy seems to diminish with every new innovation. In cities like London closed circuit t.v camera's are everywhere especially in high crime areas. With new technology even facial recognition is possible for a computer never minf licence plates. Perhaps someday we'll all have a bar code on our heads or a microchip implanted that identifies us and charts our comings and goings. Actually the microchip thing isn't too far fetched several corporations in the U.S have apparently implanted employee's with just such a device. Makes me yearn for simpler times.

I bet they take more than just the license plate image. I'm sure our faces are already in a database several times over. Just a matter of time before they take DNA of all newborns.

hmm... why not photograph us and our vehicles every time we go to the range, or sports store, that way you can tell who's an unregistered user, the possibilities are endless

Any potential benefits are more then offset by the invasion of our privacy. We have the undeniable right to privacy. No state run agency should be allowed to interfere in its citizenries daily travels

as a conspirator i object outright. with an every increasingly tyrannical government i find this invasion of privacy offensive. i dont want the government to know where i am at any given time. its none of their business as far as im concerned. the ppl out there are to be presumed innocent until proven otherwise,and until done so, the invasion of privacy is not in line with liberty and personal autonomy. should we ever have a reason to collectively conspire against government, how could we get around such technology? personally i dont think the state should have the right to take photographs of citizens or their property without prior consent. i am not willing to give up liberty for 'security'. no compromise.

I can see some merit in the photo application, but with all things, the government will abuse it. And the cops??? They will abuse this to no end until the government steps in via the courts by a citizen's action.

Well, what do you know, another way of intruding on our privacy. I can see huge potential for abuse with this. You can be garenteed any licenced firearm owner will be flagged on this system and most likely be pulled over and checked out/hasseled. Imagine a criminal getting their hands on this equipment, what they could do. Very scary.
