Canada Considers Massive 'Internet Tax'

Google actively lobbying against it.
Michael Geist describes the situation in detail.

Basically, a few policy groups are asking the legislature for some laws that have applied to media content before the Internet, to be applied to Internet content. It makes intuitive sense to me until I realize that the government should have no right to regulate media content in the first place.

Canadian law makers are obviously very stupid. Taxing or trying to regulate the internet in Canada will be about as successful as trying to regulate porn. They’ll just move somewhere else, and the Canadian internet will suffer.
