I'm not a fan of the CRTC, but I hate spammers more.
Lots of good people are really worried about CASL, Canada's Anti Spam Law because the fines are stiff, and the CRTC is in charge of enforcing, prosecuting offenders.
$1 - $200 fine per email per issuance if caught sending Commercial Electronic Messages to people you dont know with offers they didnt ask for.. spamming them.
On Jan 23rd 2014 Ottawa based privacy lawyer Shaun Brown spoke at a free CASL Compliance business breakfast for email marketers in Toronto and discussed his interpretations of the new anti spam law, and how he reckoned the CRTC will go about enforcing the new legal code. He stated that the organization would be acquiring 31 new inspectors and would begin prosecuting offenders immediately upon the new act coming into force 1st day of July 2014, and would seek to win some early court cases to show the world that their new law works and has teeth.
So be warned, if your business sends emails, look out.
