Default Crime bill to include email and internet use data without warrant [CBC]

This was in the works for a while, but the omnibus crime bill is now being debated in parliament. For Canadians, there are new provisions in this bill concerning technology use:
Compel internet service providers to hand over email and other internet usage data without a search warrant, even if no formal investigation is underway.
Will a new crime bill make Canada safer? - Your Community

While nobody should ever truly believe that they had total privacy on the net, it should be noted that a warrant would have been needed in the past for some of the info this bill now gives access to.
