The Canadian Parliament has the POWER, yes, to enforce their Will of censorship on the Internet within Canada, because they have the RCMP and the Military to FORCE themselves on the Canadian People. However, they do not have the AUTHORITY to infringe upon the inalienable rights of freedom of conscience, speech, or now, use of the Internet for global communications. The American First Amendment was not something the Founders just invented; it was a recognition of a universal right that cannot be "legislated" away. The Charter of Rights & Freedoms also acknowledges this right, in fact more definitively, and while the Ottawa Criminals can withdraw the pronouncement of the Charter, it will change nothing. Freedom of speech in Canada is morally correct regardless of what Ottawa says to the contrary. In the power of States to "regulate" (i.e. censor) the Internet is the illustration of the real nature of all existing governments today: self- serving bodies which perpetuate their own existence at the expense of the liberties and (intellectual) security of the People. The Internet community must be prepared to subvert and circumvent by any and all means an attempt by a State to control the Internet for its own purposes. On the Internet is the last and decisive battle for freedom of conscience, freedom of opinion, freedom of expression, and freedom to be ourselves. If we lose here, we lose everywhere.
