Update: The Canadian Liberal Party has announced introduced the Modernization of Investigative Techniques Act (MITA) as Bill C-416, a private members bill.
What does that mean? Well let's ask the inspiration for the video Michael Geist.
"Last introduced by the Liberals in the fall of 2005, MITA mandates the installation of new surveillance technologies within Canadian networks along with additional legal powers to access surveillance and subscriber information. Often referred to as the "lawful access" initiative, the legislation would compel Internet service providers to install new interception capabilities as they upgrade their networks. The country's major ISPs, who provide service to the majority of Canadians, would eventually be capable of intercepting data and isolating specific subscribers.
Among the most troubling aspects of Bill C-416 is a series of new powers that are not accompanied by any judicial oversight. Law enforcement authorities, including the police, CSIS agents, and even Competition Bureau authorities, will have the right to obtain ISP subscriber information simply upon request without a warrant.
