"We want to explain how we're dealing with this very complex and sensitive issue," said Dorothy Byrne, BC TELECOM's vice-president of law and regulatory affairs. "In this situation, we are Fairview Technologies' provider of Internet access through our higH-speed data network. "As a telecommunications carrier, it's not our role to monitor the use of our network by our customers. However, we can discontinue service when it's determined to be used for illegal purposes." Byrne added: "We don't want to play the role of censor, but at the same time we also don't want to do business with any company that violates criminal laws." BC TELECOM has provided to Fairview Technologies and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police copies of formal complaints received about material posted by the Oliver-based Internet service provider. "We have also met with both the B'nai Brith and the Canadian Anti-Racism Education & Research Society, and spoken with the office of the Attorney-General of British Columbia. In addition, we have hired legal counsel with specific expertise in this area to help us determine whether information on certain Web sites contravenes the Criminal Code," Byrne said. "We hope to complete that review by the end of next week." -30- For more information, please contact: Michelle Gagn=E9=20 Media relations manager 1-604-432-2949 (office) 1-800-892-4120 (toll-free pager) firstname.lastname@example.org For more information about BC TELECOM, please visit our Internet Web site at www.bctel.com.
