Lawful interception of Internet

Date: April 10, 2007

The RCMP has urged the Harper government to reintroduce a controversial bill that would force Internet service providers to turn over personal information on subscribers, arguing the lack of such legislation has already had "serious consequences" on investigations, newly released documents show.

The former Liberal government introduced a law, called the Modernization of Investigative Techniques Act, that would've made it easier for law-enforcement agencies to intercept Internet and wireless communications.

The "lawful access" law, as it was better known, also would've compelled telecommunications service providers such as Bell Canada and Rogers Communications to disclose the name and address of subscribers to authorities upon request.
