“As this decision shows, individuals can’t hide behind their company’s structure or online entities. Today’s outcome sends a strong message that they can — and will — be held liable for the spam the companies they control send to Canadians. Those who send commercial emails to Canadians must comply with Canada’s anti-spam law at all times, or face the consequences,” Steve Harroun, CRTC’s chief compliance and enforcement officer, said in a press release.
