The Winnepeg Sun has just revealed that the Canadian government will soon make a drastic change to the country’s tax laws in an attempt to raise funds to cover Canada’s ever-growing deficit. Critics are calling it iTax, and it targets internet users.  

The new system will require Canadian Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to monitor the internet usage of all their clients. Users will be taxed differently depending on which online services they use. The category that will be taxed heaviest consists of what the bill calls “sin sites” – namely, sites involving pornography, social networking, or internet gambling in Canada

A complex system has been established that analyzes the content of each site visited, and calculates tax accordingly. The only categories of website that will not be taxed are Canadian Government sites, though officials remind users that using Google to access the sites will incur a small fee. 

Bill Torrent, spokesperson for the People’s Army of the Forced Awakening, says his group is frustrated by the announcement.  

“This is sick,” said Torrent. “What’s next? A tax on TV? Books? Gasoline? The simple fact is this government is afraid of an educated population.”  

An inside source revealed that there is some opposition to the new bill within the govermnet, but everyone is afraid to speak up, simply because they don’t want to be seen as supporting Facebook, pornography, or online gambling sites in Canada

Don Loader, president of the Free Online from Our Parliament Association (FOOPA), has set up a petition (offline) to gather names of everyone who opposes the new iTax. Join the battle by calling 632-2784.
