Oh, Canada...

I haven't been paying very close attention to the Canadian corruption investigations, but Captain Ed has. In fact, his expose provoked the Canadian government to threaten prosecution of any Canadian webmaster who so much as links to his site.

Isn't this the sort of thing that totalitarian regimes do?

I think it high time for such an autocratic government to get the boot from voters. Fortunately, it seems that the Canadians are just as disgusted as the rest of us, and the Liberal Party is about to get a wake-up call the likes of which could change the course of Canadian politics.

Last word comes from one of Captain Ed's commenters, Corrie: "Yet another demonstration of 'Tucker's Theorem': The Internet was originally designed to survive a nuclear war. It treats censorship as battle damage and routes around it."
