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

Neil Schwartzman writes: 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.
