An advocate for civil liberties in BC welcomes the announcement that Ottawa is cancelling Bill C-30.
That's the bill that would have allowed police to intercept and track online communications, in a bid to catch child pornographers.
Micheal Vonn, policy director with the BC Civil Liberties Association, says she is thrilled how engaged Canadians were on some complex technological concerns.
"People got educated, understood the concerns, made their voices heard, and his is exactly the kind of response that you would hope for."
Vonn says the association will keep an eagle eye on the government, to see that it doesn't try to reintroduce the bill in some different form, to try to get it through a back door because it didn't get through the front.
