Public Safety Canada: This is why C30 is STUPID

I keep logs on my blog. I do this because it helps generate content for this blog when ATIP runs dry. I usually don’t care if anyone other than the Government of Canada visits my blog because of the fact that they are trying to pass this law to match IPs to persons. Now, the Conservatives are probably using this blog to justify saying that the NDP were the ones behind the Vikileaks account. I say this because I found THIS log entry in my old access logs:

paroxysms.access.log.10.gz:198.103.108.154 - - [17/Feb/2012:14:11:03 +0000] "GET /2011/09/19/politicians-and-ip-addresses/ HTTP/1.1" 200 5761 "http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=192.197.82.203&source=web&cd=6&sqi=2&ved=0CD4QFjAF&url=https%3A%2F%2Fparoxysms.ca%2F2011%2F09%2F19%2Fpoliticians-and-ip-addresses%2F&ei=hV4-T5ysDtLF0AHUstXxBw&usg=AFQjCNHgqI6twuTy7a215lswt6U7biScXQ" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)" </div> Now, the blog post in question is about politicians and IP addresses</a>, namely me trying to figure out who was behind the House of Commons IP address. Since the House of Commons isn't subject to ATIP, I can't simply request the IP netblock and see which public offices have which IP addresses, even though this SHOULD be possible. I also see Public Works also was looking for this IP address. Correctional Services has also been here, which is also interesting, since their agency is also a part of the house. The IP in question itself has visited my blog, which shows that it is in fact shared:
