Canadians getting messages re Spam laws

Are all the Canadians out here getting messages from Stromtrooper about changes to Canadian laws regarding spam and asking for consent to send messages?

Yup, and from about 50 other places that have my email.

In addition, my work is sending them out to all our clients. They sent several hundreds out on my behalf. So I am getting back a lot of auto-repleis from clients that are away for the [Canada Day] long weekend. Probably got a hundred of those yesterday

For curiosity's sake, can we get a short version of the law or a link? I wonder if the one California member got a copy because of the CA state abbreviation. Verticalscope, the site owner, is headquartered in Canada so is probably complying with the law in sending out notices.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has a pretty good summary:

Reasonable stuff. I wonder if it will do any good. The real spammers aren't exactly law abiding. I got three messages this morning from "Canadian" pharmacies selling "genuine" Viagra and Cialis.

I don't know how Verticalscope determines place of residence. It may be off ip addresses and Washington borders Canada.

I have accessed this site from Canadian IP addresses in the past when I visit the Great White. That could explain me getting one in California?
