Canadian ISP Surveillance Law

On Friday a proposed Federal surveillance law (Bill C-416) was introduced in Parliament. The bill is designed to require ISPs and other telecommunications service providers to establish and maintain surveillance capabilities to permit interception of online communications. The proposed law also requires ISPs to “provide basic information about their subscribers to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service” and provincial police services.
