Picks of the Week

As you might have heard, there's an election going on right now, and a lot of Web users are using the Net to promote their favorite parties. One such person used his site to anonymously back the Green Party until Elections Canada told him to take it down. Faced with either a $1,000 fine or a year in jail, the site's author agreed to take down the site. Enter Electronic Frontier Canada, a collection of Web users with one simple goal: to ensure that Canadian Net users' freedoms stay free from outside control. In its press release, EFC says it's going to fight Elections Canada's actions in court. Sounds like a contest even more interesting than this election; keep checking their site to see what happens next.
