• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

Canada’s Own PIPA Problem: Bill C-51

The Montreal Gazette ran a piece on the upcoming Bill C-51 that will be introduced to Parliament shortly.  All Canadians should read the article and be prepared to advise their Member of Parliament of their distaste for laws which enact totalitarianism.  Our country needs to avoid the American trap of limiting freedom in the name of safety!  To quote the Gazette:

Entitled Bill C-51, “an Act to enact the Investigating and Preventing Criminal Electronic Communications Act and to amend the Criminal Code and others Acts,” the law would require Internet service providers (ISPs) to install equipment that would allow them to monitor and preserve the Internet surfing activities of their customers. The providers could then be asked by police to collect and preserve surfing data of anyone suspected in engaging in criminal activity.
