Canada’s net neutrality…

The Article:

According to the site:

A handful of companies are threatening to change the way our Internet works.

They want to replace the open network Canadians enjoy today with a discriminatory or “gatekeeper network” — where they decide which content and services get the fastest access to our homes. They want to take away access to the open Internet.

My Two Cents: Seems a little drastic, but when you consider the facts, it’s more convincing. Large Internet and cable companies are pushing to get rid of net neutrality in Canada, and there are legitimate concerns about this. Canada is not unique in this; the US has also been facing this issue for a while. The general consensus is the this will block small and independent businesses, entrepreneurs, start-ups, independent media, and content producers. And information. That’s not democratic at all!
