Re: Telephone Do Not Call List gets stop-gap funding

This one is OT, but I think online privacy is important: »cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2012/···621.html
"Toronto cops threw the (Face)book at her"

>TORONTO - Artist Lizz Aston used to think her picture on Facebook helped business until Toronto Police used it as an online suspect lineup.

>"I was recently accused of assault and arrested based on a thumbnail photo from my profile pic on Facebook," she wrote on the very same Facebook page. "Please let this be an eye opener."

>When she called an officer told her "there was an altercation at the bar, two girls got in a fight and the girl who was assaulted has pointed you out as being her assaulter through a photo on Facebook."

>Trusting the system she went in Jan. 7 and explained "I wasn't even there and showed her old text messages on my phone to prove it."

>Aston said, the officer "read me my rights. I was searched, finger printed and processed."

For those interested in the "transparency" issue of costing.

Konrad von Finckenstein provides a good overview of the CRTC's confidentiality issues and how it relates to access to information.

April 4th 2012 marked the 4th anniversary of my first submission to the CRTC on the internet access. (throttling). It was also the start of the throttling fight at the CRTC.

It's been hell. I've made ennemies and friends. Blood has been shed, insults flung about. But went from being an unkown to filing a petition to governor in council and causing headaches to a lot of people because of that

The Bell letter that confirmed the throttling:

The highly illegal pictures from inside the INDU hearing (pictures are strictly verboten at committee hearings unless you are accredited journalist, but we didn't know that when we were there)

You've probably written more on this issue than any newspaper journalist has, so I think you can be considered a journalist here, and therefore the pics are nice and legal.

It's amazing what you've managed to accomplish JF, as an individual.

You may have future in the regulatory industry just yet, let's just hope it's for the good side.
