June Update: FISA (C28)

As of June 17, 2010, the House of Commons has risen for summer and has left the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act (C-28) on the shelf until the fall.

On a good note the bill will survive, along with the Amendments to PIPEDA (C-29), and will be given 2nd reading once the House is back in Ottawa later this year.

Remember to review the IAPP Canadian Privacy Symposium presentation on FISA here, and consider the changes your email program may need so your not in a scramble to make changes should this law pass quickly in the fall:
