Canadian Conservative MP Introduces ‘Clean Internet Act’ by Michael Geist

Conservative MP Introduces ‘Clean Internet Act’ by Michael GeistConservative MP Joy Smith yesterday introduced the Clean Internet Act. The private member’s bill would establish an Internet service provider licensing system to be administered by the CRTC along with “know your subscriber” requirements and content blocking powers. Just about everything associated with this bill is (to be charitable) rather odd. Smith introduced it by warning against the use of the Internet to support human trafficking and added that “the bill would address the fact that child pornography is not okay to put on the Internet throughout our nation,” though the Criminal Code already does that.http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/1884/125/
