Yes, I read that too, although I will say that the article doesn't go into much detail.

It's in line with what I've already said on these forums to people saying they will work online when they live in Spain.
There are already some measures in place to check up on internet workers.
Banks, for example, are asked to report large payments going into customers' accounts, or payments which together amount to more than a particular yearly figure (don't know the actual figure offhand, sorry).

Living in Canada, one thing I'm looking forward to is walks in the country and not having to worry about bumping into Bears and Cougars!!

We've had Black Bears and a Grizzly walk through our yard (garden) and I noticed rather large paw prints in the the snow a few weeks back, later that night when over at my neighbours he mentioned that a large Cougar had been spotted in the area, as we are all on acreages that was the 'longest' 4 minute 'dash' back to my house that night! The next time I drove the car over the street to his house...

4am here, was wide awake ~ lets see if I can back to sleep.. night night all !!
