Electronic Signatures Revisited (But Why?)

Is an electronic signature valid in law? Twenty-five years after the Internet was opened to commercial use, that may seem to be a surprising question. An off-the-cuff response might be, “why shouldn’t it be?” The law does not prescribe a form or medium for a signature. Any method of associating a legal entity (human being, corporation, government) with a piece of information (document, text, inscription) will do the job, if the legal entity had the intention that the association should be for th...

Ontario corn farmers hit with vomitoxin

Levels have been detected at up to 25 times the allowed limits in the southwestern and western parts of the province. The toxin can lead to livestock becoming sick. The province is offering to offset the cost of farmers testing their co...
