    More VPNs Prepared to Exit Canada Over Piracy Law

    Following the passing of Bill C-11 in Canada, which forces ISPs to send notices to pirates, many VPN companies were unsure if the law in fact pertains to them but some have stated that if so, they will remove their servers from the country.

    Reuben Yap of BolehVPN tells VPN Creative that they are prepared for moving if necessary. "As and when the authorities do take action on VPN providers, we would take these Candian [sic] servers offline as we are a strictly no logging policy VPN," he said in an email.

    "We retain full root access to our Canadian servers (which are dedicated servers) and therefore it would be difficult for the provider to glean much information if we didn't cooperate."

    Meanwhile, one user on Reddit posted a comment from Private Internet Access earlier this week that stated that right now its service has not been affected but should anything change it will remove its servers from Canada. http://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/2rvxbi/green_android_vpn_providers_stance_on_canada/
