The NDP Shifts into Neutral

Today, Charlie Angus, the NDP Digital Affairs Critic and representative for Timmins-James Bay, introduced a private member’s bill aimed at getting net neutrality onto the political agenda. According to the NDP’s website, their bill “will ensure the future development of the internet is not impeded by unfair throttling or interference by telecom giants.” Although the bill is another victory for neutrality advocates, it’s unlikely to elevate the issue to national prominence.
