“The Surveillance State” on CBC’s “The National”

There was a 20 minute report on CBC’s The National last night entitled “The Surveillance State”.  We are doing an in-class write today drawing comparisons between the report and predictions in “V for Vendetta“, “Brave New World“, our Snapchat vs Facebook discussion, and Margaret Atwood’s BNW introduction, “Everybody’s Happy Now“.
