Silently Bell Sympatico updated their terms and service affective by the May 15,2006 but all the news papers and Slashdot figured it out now a days.
Paragraph 17 of the terms and conditions of Bell Sympatico Service, it says:

An individual with Internet access can cause, among other things, damage, incur expenses and enter into contractual obligations while on the Internet. All such matters are your sole responsibility. Your Service Provider has no obligation to monitor the Service, any content or your use of Your Service ProviderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s networks.

That means they’ll tell you to the big brother if you download mp3s from your favorite bittorrent site.
Also by talking to friends I learned that all the ISPs in Canada doing the same thing already but Bell is the first ISP to announce it on their ToS.
