According to Inside Halton, a net enutrality motion introduced by Oakville MP John Oliver was passed unanimously by all parties so that it can be enshrined into legislation. South of the border, net neutrality will end on June 11th allowing ISPs to do pretty much as they please.

“By setting net neutrality as a guiding principle in the review of these (telecommunications and broadcasting) acts, it signals a clear commitment to placing consumers and content creators first,” said Oliver, noting he believed it was an important signal to send.

“I look forward to the robust conversation about net neutrality between the government and Canadians as an essential component of the review.”
