I'm aware of that, but we are handing over our tax dollars to them.

I was addressing Debra, who seems to be perpetuating the fiction that we're handing our demographic information to L-M.  I guess I thought that had already been debunked.

We also fund CANSEC to the tune of $191,554 thru DFAIT, 2006-08.

The list of exhibitors

Canadian military industries targeting Middle East and Africa @ COAT

The gov't released its report on military exports on March 11th, the same day as Japan's earthquake. http://coat.ncf.ca/research/Tsunamis.htm

So all I am saying, is, I think it would be better to attend the rally to bring Nuremberg principles to the to CANSEC

Our tax dollars supporting the US military industries would be dramatically reduced if we left NATO. I know, not going to happen in my lifetime.

But you're not outsourcing any information to arms dealers.

well a) you don't know what they might be skimming.. As a realist I assume anything I put on paper real or vitual may end up in unexpected places.

and B) I more meant the money for the gathering of said info.

I realized after I wrote that it might sound that way but presumed an understanding of my intent. So sorry to have upset you.  :p

Unfortunately, the trope that we're sending personal, confidential data to Lockheed-Martin seems to have legs, so no, I didn't mentally substitute "money" for "information".  I can't speak to how StatsCan will interpret it.
