    Gap settles anti-spam violation for $200,000
    December 8, 2021

    Clothing company Gap has agreed to a CA$200,000 settlement with the
    Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for allegedly violating the Canadian Anti-Spam Law (CASL) […]

    Additionally, corporate directors can be found to be liable for their organization’s CASL breaches. Such was the case with Brian Conely, chief executive officer of nCrowd, who was fined $100,000 for CASL violations
    in 2019.
    In March 2021, the CRTC fined Scott William Brewer $75,000 for
    conducting multiple hailstorm spam email campaigns, sending over
    670,000 emails without the consent of the recipients.

    It *does not* look like a efficient deterrent IMHO.
