Throughout the last year, I encountered far too many Canadian politicians who said, “Oh, of course, I’m behind you 100 per cent, but please don’t mention my name.”
I’ve also encountered, discreetly, a bunch of Hollywood bigshots who say, “I loved America Alone. Er, but please don’t mention it to anyone.”
But at some point Canadians – and Britons, Americans, Australians, Europeans – are going to have to stand up under their own names, or they will lose their freedoms to an administrative tyranny that, in a technological age, has both the means and the urge – as Justice Kershman has demonstrated – to hunt down even the most piffling anonymities.
