Don’t know much about the Communications Security Establishment of Canada? The same can’t be said about what the spy agency may know about you.

That’s the message of a new video released Monday by OpenMedia.ca as part of its privacy campaign.

The video reveals how online information collected by the government spies can expose intimate details about Canadians’ private lives. That includes financial status, medical conditions, and political and religious beliefs.

“First, spy agency CSEC assured us they didn’t spy on Canadians. Then, they admitted to ‘incidentally’ collecting our private data. Now, it’s finally been officially revealed that CSEC retained the private communications of dozens of Canadians, all of which were intercepted without a warrant. But they still aren’t coming clean about how many Canadians they spied on in the first place.”

U.S. President Barack Obama will be there. So will British Prime Minister David Cameron along with virtually every leader in the Western world. But guess who didn’t bother RSVP-ing?
