A Superior Court in Ontario, Canada has ruled that IP addresses are akin to your home address, and therefore people have no expectation of privacy when it comes to their online activities being accessed by law enforcement. This means that, in Canada, police can potentially request information from your ISP about online activities, and can do so without a warrant.

Ok obviously your ip address is not the same as your home address.
But even if it was, its private information.Right?
And they need a warrant to search your home address do they not?
So clearly they should need a warrant to search your IP address should they not?
This makes absolutely no sense and this person needs to be fired immediately.
