Why is CSE storing millions of emails that Canadians send to the government? http://ow.ly/JKs45
Canada’s electronic spy agency collects and stores millions of emails sent to the government to check for malware, according to leaked documents. But experts are concerned about the scope of the surveillance.

If that were all they were going to do, yes, it would be something to celebrate.  You should've considered who brought what forward. and the record of who they helped thus far.  Yes, we'll all get to see soon enough if this was really good or not - whether the intention matches the motive.

Obama:  If you like your Internet, you can keep it.  Sorry, I couldn't resist.  You're totally screwed.

I thought you guys were for real. Instead of fighting for freedom you`re celebrating bureaucracy overreach in controlling what used to be controlled by market forces. While the market is not ideal giving the power over to bureaucrats is even worse. They always start with communist slogans of "equality" but they end up taking your freedom. Just watch it.

Just as we're nearing authentic net neutrality in the U.S., a major Canadian telco is trying to take us backwards http://ow.ly/JCfpY
Bell Canada has gone to court to overturn a ruling from Canada’s telecom watchdog that requires the media giant to price competing streaming services at the same rates as its own. The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commissi...

We aren't nearing authentic net neutrality in the US - we're nearing an empowered bureaucracy that the telcos and cable companies have proven themselves completely able to game, lobby, and control in their interest.  We are nearing the very thing net neutrality advocates were afraid of, instituted officially and with all the same problems we had with telephony through the 60's-90's.  

The CRTC is no better, being a revolving door for telco and cable industry established players' executives.   We don't need more high-handed top-down management to run a distributed technology, we need the monopoly privilege that comes from the regulator to be removed from play, so actual small players like tech-savvy, google-fiber, and others can spin up without having to face artificial barriers to entry.
