in the Canadian healthcare world: Canada’s central Adverse drug reaction database goes online. It’s called CADRIS (Canadian Adverse Drug Reaction Information System) and is accessible via the site of the department that maintains the program: CADRMP (MP = Monitoring Program) in the Therapeutic Products Branch within Health Canada.

from the Supreme Court of Canada: Top court rules ISPs not liable for royalties. “In a unanimous 9-0 decision, the court ruled that although ISPs provide the hardware and technology, they aren’t responsible for what people download. The court ruled that companies providing wide access to the web are ‘intermediaries’ who are not bound by federal copyright legislation.” I am going to study the text of the decision to see if they used the term “common carrier” with respect to ISPs.
