The November 2 videoconference given by Edward Snowden received worldwide press coverage, with some outlets devoting multiple stories to the event, both pre- and post-event. The conference took place during ongoing revelations that numerous Quebec investigative journalists had been surveilled for years by the Montreal Police.

Snowden's comments on these developments fuel the dialogue and debate on the right to privacy, journalistic integrity and the surveillance state.
