The Law Bytes Podcast, Episode 167: Inside My Senate Committee Appearance on the Many Risks of Bill C-18

Bill C-18, the Online News Act, has now shifted to the Senate, where the Transportation and Communications committee, is reviewing a bill that has led Meta to say it plans to block news sharing in Canada altogether in the bill passes in its current form. I appeared before the committee earlier this month with discussion that focused on a wide range of issues, including the risks of mandating payments for links, the non-compliance with international copyright obligations, why the CBC should not be included in the payment for links system, and how a fund would be a better approach. This week’s Lawbytes podcast goes inside the committee room for my opening statement and exchanges with half a dozen Senators.

    In order to provide the highest level of safety, your business has to run Protectimus 2fa platform on a private network. There are many different types of security measures that may be implemented, some of which include multifactor authentication, biometrics, audit monitoring, password management, and complex authorisation. Businesses who are looking for a secure authentication technique should seriously consider this approach as an alternative since it is so simple to use.

    If you have friends or family in the area, you might be able to store some of your belongings with them temporarily. This option is free but may not offer the same level of security as a self-storage unit or portable storage container.
