There is a new idea gaining buzz with Canadian: techies
, web developers
, and cultural advocates
called the 'Canadian Internet'. Similar to how the CRTC
has imposed Can-Con
regulations on television and radio, the Association of Canadian Content
wants to see some of those regulations find their way online. In fact, they are proposing to 'geo-block'
up to 95% of web pages
foreign to the country of Canada. They are putting forward their proposal next week in Ottawa. Host Pat Kelly
had the chance to speak with representative Spencer Willis
to learn more about this idea.
