The article I linked to about metered internet in Canada turns out to be more or less the opposite of what’s actually happening, two helpful Tumblr users informed me.

The Harper government is killing an independent federal regulator’s decision on Internet billing, a populist move allowing the Conservatives to cast themselves as a champions of consumers.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ruling – which had sparked a major consumer backlash – would have spelled an end to unlimited Web access packages offered by smaller Internet providers.
