I bet you...
That 90% of it is in Quebec and 90% of that 90% is in Montréal. It feels like Quebec is Canada's Nigeria or something by the amount of fraud I see originating from there.
Canada is on its way to becoming an unlikely hotbed of cybercrime. As hosting providers in China and Eastern Europe have begun to clean up their act, mostly in response to external pressure, cybercrooks have begun looking to countries with better online reputations, such as Canada. As a result, the number of Canadian servers …
He is more concerned in passing that stupid law to force ISPs to do deep packet inspection on all IPs and to give customers names and addresses without a legal warrant than to really fix any issues with thos damn Quebec bastards.
Adding to this the fact the government wants to let ISPs to charge internet usage per GB without having a fixed rate plan and we have here the worst scenario possible for internet users. High prices, no privacy, no concern with SPAM/botnets and too much regulation.
All we need now is another asshole in the government to try to implement the same stupid firewall ideia they have in Australia. Then I am moving. I am tired of paying for stupidity.
It's most likely the border jumpers from south of the 49th who have just realised that the laws in Canada are way different from the U.S.A.
So many of the heavy handed, draconian laws - such as the DCMA - are not in effective in Canada, plus we have some extremely fast InterNet pipes.
It's similar to the there being no TSA to rifle your air baggage - Canada is much more understanding and offers a great way to avoid the U.S. of A.
And our BC marijuana is way better than anything the U.S.A. has, along with the beer! You know something is going right up here when the DEA is bitching about our laws. What better reasons to come north?
It may amuse regulars to hear that when I went looking for an online source of Indian-made generic viagra the other day (much cheaper than the brand name stuff, and just as effective), I discovered that the sources I had on my "reliable" shortlist one and all said "we do not ship to Canada." LIving in Burundi? They'll ship. In the US? They'll ship. But not if you live in the Great White North.
Sometimes I don't understand this country; maybe I'm not eating enough seal flipper pie.
