Feds Ponder Warrantless Police Access To Internet Subscriber Info: Chiefs

The glimpse into federal deliberations about how to address the highly influential court decision comes in a newly published background document from the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, which is urging the government to fill the legislative gap.
