Text of David Fraser's Testimony On Bill C-13

In Parliament, the Justice and Human Rights Committee is discussing Bill C-13, also known as the Protecting Canadians From Online Crime Act, also known as "the cyberbullying law". I've discussed the bill before. The bill is being pitched as a way to protect innocent Canadians from cyber-predators, but concerns have been raised that it grants law enforcement more power to compel disclosure of subscriber information from telecommunications providers than is necessary. One of those with concerns about the bill is David Fraser, who has been invited to appear before the Committee. He's posted the text of his testimony on his blog and it's worth a read.
