The SPAM law

Posted on Jul 8, 2014 in News

Hey everyone!

On July 1 2014 a new law came into effect in Canada prohibiting the mass emailing of folks you don't know. Canada was apparently at the bottom of the global list of anti-spam legislation prior to the Law coming into action on July 1. A big, bold move by our government to protect us little folks for the evils of spamming.

So over the last couple of weeks, I have been taking advantage of 'removing' myself from email list when a multitude of companies have been emailing me, asking to 'accept' this email in order to be kept abreast of news, products and generally useless information. Some of these emails have even gone so far as to quote the now in effect law and how none of these companies do not want to be in breach, fined, etc.

So despite me punching the 'no thank you' button on all of these emails, guess how many have taken me off their email lists?


What effective legislation we have in place to protect us from the evils of spam...
