For most Millennials, life thus far is divided into two distinct components: pre-9/11 and post-9/11. At the dividing line lies the first news report on the radio or the phone call in which the person on the other end said, "Turn on the TV." 9/11 forced us to grow up overnight, and growing up was not all that it's cracked up to be.

Canadians mourn alongside Americans on this sad anniversary of 9/11. We were affected deeply on that day 10 years ago, nearly as much as the U.S. itself: not just by the Canadian lives we lost, but by the empathetic pain we feel when our closest kin suffers a tragedy. Whatever longstanding sibling rivalry Canadians have felt towards Americans vanished -- at that moment we became one family grieving death together. We also became key partners in what would be called the War on Terror: This week on HuffPost Canada, new contributor Jennifer Stoddart, Privacy Commissioner of Canada, offered important analysis of what this has meant to our privacy laws. We also welcomed aboard two distinguished contributors who offered their reactions to the news that the prime minister was considering re-introducing controversial anti-terrorism laws: former counter terror operative Mubin Shaikh and terrorist expert David Harris.

After 9/11, I didn't want people to think I was Muslim. "They" were going to make my life harder for something "we" never had a hand in. "They" were the ones responsible and I wanted nothing to do with it. Being referred to as Muslim quickly changed from a harmless mistake to a black mark.

Privacy is not an unconditional entitlement and there may be cases when its protections must give way to meet a greater good.
