Abstract
The report looks at the broad context of contemporary surveillance, and how location technologies fit within this increasingly networked and integrated environment. It also comments on developments in other countries -- such as E-911 services in the USA -- that have a bearing on the Canadian situation. Lastly, it attempts to gauge how ordinary citizens, workers, consumers and travelers interact with and respond to location technologies.
