Canadian internet - lawful access / Protecting Children from Internet Predators bill
A proposed bill to:
-Require internet service providers to give subscriber data to police and national security agencies without a warrant, including names, unlisted phone numbers and IP addresses.
-Force internet providers and other makers of technology to provide a "back door" to make communications accessible to police.
-Allow police to get warrants to obtain information transmitted over the internet and data related to its transmission, including locations of individuals and transactions.
-Allow courts to compel other parties to preserve electronic evidence.
The third one is a bit odd given that the first one grants them the right to do what they want without a warrant. All of them are variations on the themes we've already discussed on these boards .
Of course they're doing that same ol' spin Online surveillance critics siding with child porn: Toews. *sigh*
Unfortunately the moment we still have a conservative majority and no real opposition so like so many other things Harper may find this rather easy to slip through
