Canada's attempts to alter its Copyright bills over the past 7 years have all failed,
often dying when an election is called. Attempts at implementing so called "Lawful Access" legislation have also previously died
in the House of Commons. Yesterday, Bill c-30,
"the Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act" was introduced by Vic Toews,
Minster of Public Safety, accompanied by one of the harbringer states of the "Four Horsemen of the Infopocolypse"
, "[one] can either stand with us or with the child pornographers."
The interent has a history of responding poorly to politicians trying to limit online freedoms and didn't respond to nicely to Vic Toews wanting to know more about your life. Meet @Vikileaks30
, a twitter account exposing portions of Vic Toews acrimonious divorce proceedings, adultery, and public accounts bills.More on c-30 from Michael Geist, including warrentless disclosure and other no-nos.
