PRISM: Telcos Violating Privacy

It apparently doesn’t matter if the Canadian spy agencies don’t spy on Canadians. To be clear though, the Ed Snowden leaks make it clear that they do spy on us.

Canada’s intelligence agency deliberately kept the country’s Federal Court “in the dark” to bypass the law in order to outsource its spying on Canadian citizens abroad to foreign security agencies, a federal judge said.

Federal Court Judge, Richard Mosley, has slammed the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) for knowingly misleading him on numerous occasions.

Why does a telephone company get charged with paying $21,000 for breaching privacy, but CSIS and CSEC continue to violate all Canadians privacy in similarly damaging manners? Why the double standard in law enforcement?

ADDED: If you need me to explain why these two privacy stories go together, let me know.
1.) Canada cloud haven? The NSA is supposed to spy on non-Americans.

2.)CSEC admits it spies on Canadians “incidentally”.
