‘Conservative’ MP proposes WWW censorship in Canada

See this blog.

Not that it has a snowball’s chance, even in the Great White North!  Her ruling party (not truly classically-conservative, as I’ve said many times before) may have a plurality in the House of Commons, but far from a majority, and they don’t control the Senate, which hasn’t ceased to be a House for “sober second thought” (yet).  And anyway, Private Members’ Bills are rarely enacted in Canada, even from within the Prime Minister’s party, especially from back-benchers.

Anyway, there’s really no need; other laws aplenty cover this stuff.  And constitutionally: c’mon, the Minister of Industry turned into a deputy Attorney General?  Real bad idea.
