Cybercrime in Canadian Criminal Law is a treatise on computer crime for the Canadian marketplace. It provides concrete answers to the difficult question of how to successfully deal with computer crime in Canada. It sets out the existing regulatory framework and considers alternatives in depth. It also provides a complex, multi-tiered proposal for effective law enforcement, while considering the question of constitutional and other constraints on regulation, including cost. It also draws analogies to existing law enforcement powers in other areas, such as terrorism and money laundering, as well as related technologies, including telephone networks. Finally, it discusses how similar measures have been implemented in other jurisdictions throughout the world.
