  3. Canada's Federal Court of Appeal has to decide whether the country's first pirate site blocking order can stay in place. Internet provider Teksavvy objected to the far-reaching measures but, according to a new filing from media companies Bell, Rogers, and TVA, website blocking is lawful and much-needed. Last year Canada’s Federal Court approved the first pirate site blocking order in the country. Following a complaint from major media companies Rogers, Bell and TVA, the Court ordered several major ISPs to block access to domains and IP-addre
  4. A scathing new report shows that Canada has a long way to go when it comes to closing the country’s digital divide. Canada has “no plan” to wire up remote communities that lack high-speed broadband connections, Canada’s auditor general said in a scathing report tabled in Parliament on Tuesday. The report comes just two years after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, an Indigenous community at the border of Manitoba and Ontario, and vowed that his government would work to end the digital divide that leaves rural and remo
  5. South Koreans who use cannabis while in Canada could face criminal charges when they return to their home country, Korean police are warning. An official from South Korea’s narcotics unit gave the message earlier this week, saying marijuana is treated as a serious offence. Violators could face up to five years in prison. “Weed smokers will be punished according to the Korean law, even if they did so in countries where smoking marijuana is legal. There won’t be an exception,” said the official, according to the Korea Times. The South Korea
  6. Canada’s legalization of the recreational use of marijuana, which went into effect last week, has prompted the Japanese government to issue warnings that Japan’s law on cannabis use may apply to its nationals even when they are abroad. A woman smokes marijuana during a legalization party at Trinity Bellwoods Park in Toronto last Wednesday. In an Oct. 4 message posted on its website, the Japanese Consulate in Vancouver said that while Canada was set to legalize the possession and use of marijuana on Oct. 17, acts such as possessing or purchasing the drug are
  7. A law against pretending to practice witchcraft will soon be repealed in Canada. But that hasn't stopped local police from prosecuting those who use the "dark arts" to bilk people for thousands of dollars. Two Canadian women have been charged with pretending to practise witchcraft, breaking a little-known law in Canada's criminal code that could soon be out the door. The first charge was levied against Dorie "Madeena" Stevenson, a fortune teller from Milton, Ontario on 18 October after a months-long investigation. She is accused of defraud
  8. 'Some that have smoked are saying no, because they're scared that they may be banned for life' The mayor of Estevan, Sask., says local residents have been turned away at the nearby U.S. border after admitting to past pot use. "It is a fairly serious concern," said Roy Ludwig, mayor of the 11,258-person city located just 16 kilometres north of a North Dakota border crossing. "Even people that might have smoked it 20, 30 years ago, they're being asked, 'Have you ever smoked cannabis?' when they get to the U.S. border. We understand some peop
  9. Members of Parliament from Great Britain and Canada are pushing to have Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testify before them and answer questions about his company’s data privacy practices and disinformation being spread on the social media platform. “Given your self-declared objective to “fix” Facebook, and to prevent the platform’s malign use in world affairs and democratic process, we would like to give you the chance to appear at this hearing,” Damian Collins, chairman of Great Britain's Commons Digital Culture Committee, and Bob Zimmer, chairman of the Canadian parliam
  10.

The executive is the daughter of the founder of Huawei. If extradit
  11. New data suggests teen smoking rates in Canada are also rising Using data gathered in the last six months, University of Waterloo professor David Hammond found a disturbing trend in Canadian teen vaping rates. As he tallied his latest data on vaping rates among Canadian teens, University of Waterloo Prof. David Hammond tried to find reasons not to believe his own research. That's because the results were troubling. According to his numbers, Canadian teenage vaping rates have increased substantially, similar to the dramatic increase in
  12. A United Nations committee is calling on Canada to act on the “forced sterilization” of Indigenous women and girls dating back to the 1970s. The Committee against Torture took issue with Canada’s human rights record in a report released Friday in Ottawa. The “extensive forced or coerced sterilization” of Indigenous women and a failure to address outstanding issues related to the Tyendinaga stand-off in 2008 were among them. The committee’s report comes as groups like the Assembly of First Nations and Amnesty International sound the alarm on ongoi
  13.

  14. You can be denied entry at the U.S. border if they know you've purchased weed. Marijuana became legal in Canada this past October, and while most Canadians were more than pleased with the choice by the federal government, there have been a handful of hiccups. Because cannabis is an illegal substance in most other countries, the personal information of Canadians who are making legal purchases within Canada is very "sensitive," according to the guide. This sensitivity is, of course, due to the fact that countries can deny entry to
  15. CALGARY—When energy companies go bankrupt, the cleanup of their old oil and gas wells must take priority over paying off creditors, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled Thursday. On Thursday morning, the nation’s highest court made a decision in the Redwater case, which could have implications for the handling of oil and gas wells across Canada. “Bankruptcy is not a licence to ignore rules,” wrote Chief Justice Richard Wagner in the court’s decision. Though the Alberta government, the province’s energy regulator and environmental groups hai
  16. These recent confirmed cases demonstrate that these incidents are still ongoing' A view of the Canadian Embassy in Havana, Cuba, where a 14th Canadian has now fallen ill to an unexplained illness. The Cuban government is criticizing Canada's decision on Wednesday to halve its embassy staff after a 14th Canadian fell ill to an unexplained illness in Havana.

In return, Bell says it will provide ad
  19. There's some uproar in Canada about a supposed 'novel' tactic that's being used to sue alleged BitTorrent pirates. In reality, however, these lawsuits have been ongoing for years. They are typically known as "copyright trolling" efforts and have targeted thousands of Canadians already. For the record, this has nothing to do with Game of Thrones. This week Canadian news outlets are reporting about a supposed new legal campaign against people who pirate movies and TV-shows via BitTorrent. This includes an article from CBC, which featured a still from Game of Thrones, s
  20. GATINEAU, QC, Oct. 28, 2019 /CNW/ - The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has been joined by privacy commissioners from around the world urging for the recognition of privacy as a fundamental human right, vital to the protection of other democratic rights.

  21. The European Commission has published an updated list of foreign countries with problematic copyright policies. One of the highlighted countries is Canada which, according to the EU, has too broad copyright exceptions.

The Canadian Government is no stranger to having its copyright policies critiqued. The US Trade Representative, for example, has repeatedly placed its northern neighbor o

Canadian Copyright Review Rejects Site-Blocking Regime, Keeps Safe Harbors The Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology has published its long-awaited review of Canada's Copyright Act.
