Bill C-30 is still alive and well, according to the pro Internet group Open Media.
It hasn’t been heard from since. But that doesn’t mean the bill, which the Province dubbed the “Spying on Every Single Canadian any Time We Feel Like it Act,” won’t resurface.
“Really, they never suggested that the bill was going to die,” says Lindsay Pinto, a spokesperson for Open Media. “They did try to quiet it down after a bit and try to wait us out but clearly Canadians have stayed engaged and informed. Our outcry has not died down and neither have they.”
Why indeed should the State have that kind of power? They should have to go through due process, just like obtaining a warrant for a premises search.
