Crime and the Internet
Participants at a Vancouver conference this week will look at the rising problem of crime on the Internet and how to combat it. SFU associate communication professor Richard Smith specializes in how we use the internet and can look at why and how people get involved in criminal activity or become victims of such crimes.

Closer energy ties with U.S. – report
SFU political scientist Alexander Moens says Canada should strengthen its energy ties with the U.S. if it wants secure oil and gas supplies and stabilize its own markets. Moens is co-author of a new Fraser Institute report, Achieving Energy Security through Integrated Canadian-American Markets. It also suggests Canada re-evaluate its foreign ownership policies and set up a task force on B.C.’s offshore oil and gas reserves.
