Chantal Hébert: Trans Mountain defeat threatens Justin Trudeau’s re-election story

  Chantal Hébert: Trans Mountain defeat threatens Justin Trudeau’s re-election story Chantal Hébert: Trans Mountain defeat threatens Justin Trudeau’s re-election storyJustin Trudeau lost more than a big court battle in the pipeline war this week. He also lost part of his re-election narrative.

The Supreme Court of Canada says internet service providers can recover some of the costs of helping movie companies and other copyright holders find illegal downloaders.

In a decision today, the high court sides with Rogers Communications in ruling that the companies pursuing copyright violators should reimburse service providers a reasonable amount for the effort of looking up subscribers suspected of breaking the law.

The decision could end up saving Rogers and other internet providers many thousands of dollars, but the Supreme Court says the appropriate fees should be decided at a future Federal Court hearing.

Police arrest third suspect in Scarborough playground shooting

  Police arrest third suspect in Scarborough playground shooting Police arrest third suspect in Scarborough playground shooting in June that injured two young sisters, age 5 and 9. This Week's Circulars require(["c.deferred"], function () { require({ js: '//api.circularhub.com/msn/module.loader.min.js' }); }); The man was arrested on the morning of August 21 at a private residence in the area of Eglinton Ave. E. and McCowan Rd. Police say they were investigating reports of a man in possession of an illegal firearm. When they executed the search warrant, they found the man and arrested him.

The case began when movie production firm Voltage Pictures asked Rogers for information about an alleged violator under provisions of the Copyright Act.

Rogers retrieved the information but agreed to disclose it only upon payment of a fee — $100 per hour of work plus HST.

Voltage Pictures hopes to eventually obtain the information of tens of thousands of suspected copyright infringers, and it argued the federal legislative regime precluded Rogers from charging a fee.
