Safe Mode: On
Canadians will likely pay for online surveillance bill

Initial cost estimates to implement the federal government's online
surveillance bill run into the tens of millions of dollars, and experts
say those costs will be passed on to Canadians by either the government,
or the companies forced to upgrade their technology to comply with the
legislation's requirements.

Public Safety Canada is estimating it could cost $80 million over
four years for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Telecommunications
Service Providers (TSPs) to acquire the necessary hardware and software
to engage in the type of surveillance allowed for in Bill C-30. The
legislation is also known as the Protecting Children from Internet
Predators Act.

The bill would require TSPs and ISPs to hand over basic information
about their clients at the request of law enforcement or spy agencies,
including the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), without a
warr

  • The government is using "child porn" the same way environmentalists use the "polar bear" ... pick the most vile (or adorable) object to slam their agenda through. When pushed for an example where current laws against CP have slowed or prevented police from catching the bad guys .. they of course could not.

  • OK - so what would you rather have? Paedophiles and terrorists communicating their crap freely?

    Sorry - In "Defence of the Realm" is just fine with me. If the Gov't can shut the cunts down then I say "Do it!". The alternatives are far more costly.

  • I'm sure the usual crowd of Liberals will vomit their stupidity about "civil liberties". But there is nothing civil about taking liberties as a child-rapist or getting your limbs blown off.

    Let the entitlement-bloated Liberals and NDP complain, while real men look after business and keep Canadians safe.

    You fags.

    • @pthogen14niner

      You've got to hand it to the government. They know that if they slap the right name on such a draconian bill all the morons like you will get right behind it.

      And no, I'm not a liberal.
