Net Neutrality in Canada

Net Neutrality in Canada: Amber Mac, "couldn't ignore the many emails about the net neutrality debate in Canada. In response, shot a two-minute video news update to shed some light on the situation (thx to CD for shooting and editing this!). The little kid in the video is hard to hear, but I can assure you that he is one bitter ISP customer!"

CBC uses Bittorrent to distribute shows? I didn't know that. Of course, my ISP forbids bt, so I couldn't know that but whatever, it seems the whole issue
of net neutrality and traffic shaping has even hit the floor of the House of Commons.
update: and hit it did, and the House? In their 'wisdom' they sided with the Telcos and granted full permission to trim, ban, taper and prefer as per their corporate whims.
