I kind of get where these laws are coming from . But what i do not get is how terrorists get facebook or twitter accounts in the first place . Perhaps i think that the internet is a lot more advanced than it is . Surely an account opened in Raqqa province would be a big red flag . Can they not tell where these accounts are made . If i was to send something threatening to a alphabet agency i would expect knocks on the door at 3AM the next day . Ddos attacks are commonplace but a terrorist with a phone cant be touched . Perhaps a few bombs on the cellphone networks are in order . My computer knowledge is probably at a grade 4 level . Educate me please .

And those "orders" would be rightfully ignored by ISP's or "custodians" not based in Canada, which was one of my points. Just as the USA is not world police, Canada is not either. Explain to me, how a Canadian judge could enforce a judicial order on me to remove my website, which is owned entirely by me, runs on a dedicated mach8ine in a datracenter in France. Is either the UK (I'm British) or France subject to Canadian law? No.
Thats why I said, in reality this will just be an order to Canadian ISP's to block access to the content, not to actually try and remove it.
Also for anyone wondering, my website is just a photo-gallery, not terrorist propaganda. I just used it to make a point.

Something that has been bothering me for a long time about real terrorist stuff on the internet, is that with units like GCHQ I cannot see why these sights such as how to make a bomb, the latest watch me slaughter someone from Syria etc etc is not immediately removed and viruses sent to the computers that oggle at these sights.

The FBI did raid/shutdown/seized foreign websites and servers in the past, and this happened several times already. I think you're a bit too naive...
