Submission + - Canadian proposed law would allow warrantless sear (news1130.com)

Anonymous Coward writes: "A bill introduced by Canada's Minister of Public Safety will allow police to (warrantlessly) force ISPs to provide access to any requested digital traffic records, reports News 1130. Police lobbied for the bill as means of "combatting gangsters, pedophiles, or terrorists", but apparently they find the legal principles of judicial review and probable cause, as well as a constitutional provision against "unreasonable search or seizure", to be too much of a hassle, and would rather be able to search anyone's web or e-mail traffic at their own discretion and without any oversight. All in the name of public safety, of course."
