Yonge Street — a online magazine named after Toronto's main street; the spine that ties the GTA together — ran a feature article about the Citizen Lab; a global hot spot, solving the world's pressing security problems...

The Citizen Lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs, at the University of Toronto, focusing on advanced research and development at the intersection of digital media, global security, and human rights.
In the old world, you would expect the press to perform some of that function but in the new world, there are people like Ron Deibert and his team really thinking through these problems of transparency, privacy and power. That's a really important powerful combination
