The Myth about anyone , BULLIES NOW , LIARS, ABUSERS, SLANDERERS INCLUDED having total free speech on the net has been clearly dispelled often too..
While the Internet is in Canada unregulated by the government , the Police and the courts still do regulate internet abuse. Of specific interest was the continual ongoing consistency of deformation of character, personal attacks, Libel, slander, bullying, the invasion of privacy too.
The Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest
An Ontario Superior Court judge has ordered a pair of website owners to turn over identifying information about eight people being accused of defamation after posting anonymous comments. Kershman cited a 2004 case that said privacy cannot be used to protect a person from the application of civil or criminal liability, and that privacy rights must be balanced against the rights of other interests and the public interest. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/27/ontario-judge-orders-website/
CP TIVERTON, Ont. – Bruce Power, a nuclear generating facility on the shores of Lake Huron, has fired close to 100 employees at its site at Tiverton, Ont.

He said that Bruce Power “expects all employees and contractors to live by the code of conduct. ” Bruce Power, about 250 kilometres northwest of Toronto, employs about 3,000 people. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090910/national/nuclear_plant_firings
Libel, slander, verbal abuse of others on the net can still get one in plenty of trouble in the courts as well… Even telling the truth has to be balanced with Compassionate (Gal 6:1 KJV) Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Cyber Bullies like to tell the lie that slander, libel, bullying is an acceptable free right of expression of the internet cause they are liars like the devil their father.. it never is..
The hypocritical, pretentious fundamental right winged evangelical pastor in LaSalle, Quebec Preaches openly today now for us not to have anything to do with a person who drinks wine, and to stand up against all people who do any wrong, to openly speak to them, and lies and says come and talk to me your pastor after church. I am always really interested to hear from you about all of your concerns but in reality when you do try to talk to him.. but since he himself cannot handle negative truths, he the ostrich no good pastor refuses to talk with you and says I am tired now, I refuse to hear any of that, I refuse to believe any of that, that is all gossip, slanders, and we do not allow anyone who causes disturbance, problems, gives any criticism in our church, so please leave now. So much for their false professing Christian love, brotherly love, their openness now too.. The same pastor says he does not believe anything the news media writes at all. So who does he believe? only himself it seems.For the record, the evangelical Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada himself now did not even deny to me that he drinks beers and/or alcohol, or that he even gives presents of alcohol to others as well. So why do any of the others? Well?
too many Conservatives still also lie and say you can be a good family man and be an alcoholic as well..
the sad reality contradicts it often.. the broken next homes..
and no man can serve two masters, for he will love one and hate the other..
No matter what the goal is, leading others to Christ included, the ends do not justify the means by anyone, pastors, elders, deacons, others , cheating, lying, stealing included now.. How you get there is as important as where you are going.
Not only are the courts prohibit libel, slander on the net so next is the government itself, the president, he is now able to shut down the net, your computers too IF HE THINKS IT IS NECESSARY. Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet. They’re not much happier about a revised version which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cyber security emergency. The new version would allow the president to “declare a cyber security emergency” relating to “non-governmental” computer networks and do what’s necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for “cyber security professionals,” and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license. A Senate source compared the president’s power to take control of portions of the Internet to what President Bush did when grounding all aircraft on Sept. 11, 2001. The source said that one primary concern was the electrical grid, and what would happen if it were attacked from a broadband connection. When Rockefeller, the chairman of the Senate Commerce committee, and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) introduced the original bill in April, they claimed it was vital to protect national cybersecurity. “We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs–from our water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic health records,” Rockefeller said. It permits the president to “direct the national response to the cyber threat” if necessary for “the national defense and security.” The White House is supposed to engage in “periodic mapping” of private networks deemed to be critical, and those companies “shall share” requested information with the federal government. (“Cyber” is defined as anything having to do with the Internet, telecommunications, computers, or computer networks.) There’s no provision for any administrative process or review. If your company is deemed “critical”, a new set of federal regulations kick in involving who you can hire, what information you must disclose, and when the government would exercise control over your computers or network. Such is reality.. The president of the United States has always had the constitutional authority, and duty, to protect the American people and direct the national response to any emergency that threatens the security and safety of the United States. The Rockefeller-Snowe Cybersecurity bill makes it clear that the president’s authority includes securing our national cyber infrastructure from attack. The section of the bill that addresses this issue, applies specifically to the national response to a severe attack or natural disaster. This particular legislative language is based on longstanding statutory authorities for wartime use of communications networks. To be very clear, the Rockefeller-Snowe bill will not empower a “government shutdown or takeover of the Internet” and any suggestion otherwise is misleading and false. The purpose of this language is to clarify how the president directs the public-private response to a crisis, secure our economy and safeguard our financial networks, protect the American people, their privacy and civil liberties, and coordinate the government’s response. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10320096-38.html?tag=rtcol;inTheNewsNow
The sad fact is we already do have bad police on the net and it is firms like Bell who monitor their ISP users undeniably now as well. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/05/21/bell-throttles-internet-speeds/ Do you also have one shred of evidence that Bell telephone itself is an ethical Company. Bell has no reason to do so for it is still unregulated by the federal and the provincial governments. My personal dealings with the presidents, vice presidents, managers of Bell even the least 5 years was that it is one of the most dishonest, unethical firm in Canada as per my many rightful Bell Sympatico complaints,, Bell has no one but itself to blame for it’s own downfall, about 40 percent of it’s own internet customers have complained about big bad Bell abusing them, lying to them, not keeping their contract agreement already. I have often told Bell in writing that would all happen now too on the net as well..
