Harper government to force Internet service providers to give police access to information on all Canadian Internet subscribers and all their private communications – without a court warrant.
Ottawa (22 June 2009) - Canada's Conservative government wants to give police sweeping new powers to eavesdrop on Canadians in cyberspace and to require Internet service providers (ISPs) to snoop on subscribers without a warrant whenever they are asked by police to do so.
Two bills - C-46 and C-47 - introduced in Parliament on June 18 would grant police access without oversight from the courts to all private Internet communications and all information on individual subscribers in the files of ISPs.
•free police to access information on an Internet subscriber, such as name, street address and e-mail address without a search warrant.
•force Internet service providers to freeze data on hard drives to prevent subscribers under investigation from deleting potentially important evidence.
•require telecommunications companies to invest in technology enabling them to intercept all of the Internet communications they handle.
•allow police to remotely activate tracking devices already embedded in cell phones and certain cars.
•allow police to obtain data about where Internet communications are coming from and going to.
•make it a crime to arrange with a second person over the Internet for the sexual exploitation of a child.
