Ottawa keeps draft internet regulation legislation under wraps
Discussion posted by: TheRage
The feds have drafted legislation for the regulation of legal internet content but so far it’s off-limits to the public. “The department has prepared a discussion paper to advance policy development,” said Department of Heritage spokesperson Daniel Savoie. The Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review Panel previously said all internet media in Canada should be federally registered. Not only that but the cabinet advisory group said it should be governed by CRTC-regulated codes of conduct. Both civil liberties groups and opposition MPs are against any federal regulation of the internet.
