The boys are back from Def Con! We talk about our experience with def con 25 and what we would do different next year.

We also discuss Bill C-59, the ‘Clean up’ bill for Canada’s anti-terrorism bill C-51, what does it contain and does it go far enough? And what you can do to ensure your member of parliament hears your voice on this important issue!

So grab your drink, and join us for all these exciting topics and more!
