C-27 Canada's Electronic Commerce Protection Act passes Committee Review

The Canadian anti-spam bill everyone is talking about, bill C-27, passed an important milestone on Monday October 26, at 17:30 when it passed clause-by-clause committee review and was referred back to the Canadian House of Commons materially intact and without controversial amendments that would have significantly altered the bill.


CAUCE board members followed the procedings intently, and are very pleased with the results thus far.

The bill faces a third and final reading in the house, before being sent to Senate, where it will face two more readings and votes, a committee review, and another final reading and vote.

It is expected to become law in Canada by the end of 2009.
