Social Profiling Bill

Hi Editor,

May I suggest to our government that they first sort out the 2009 Census Results/Report before attempting to take the path of this Bill. It seems to me that the new government will be infringing on a lot of things that might back fire soon. Few examples include, freedom of movement, association and other civil liberties. The kinds of information they are looking for can be deduced from the 2009 Census data or from the Ministry of Health, Home Affairs, Immigration. You do not have to create a new data base. There are other issues associated with having such a data base that must be cleared too. It may be subjected to other misappropriations, misuse and perhaps hackers as well. I suggest they focus on services (Ed., Health, Infrastructure) and controlling our birth rate rather than focusing on this controversial Bill. I hope they do not go down this path because they might trode on broken glasses here.
