How Am I Gonna Live in Canada Now?

I thought those Canadians were cool but some Hoser introduced legislation to force internet providers to facilitate easy monitoring of Internet activity as well as identification of users (the latter without a warrant).

Thanks to Slashdot for this one. Like they say, it sounds like this won't pass but it's scary that someone is proposing this already. It's prolly just a matter of time till the government can instantly find out exactly how much porn I download.

Here's a link to the original blog post from Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in Internet & E-commerce Law, University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law.
