Media coverage of The Canadian Connection report series

The Citizen Lab report “The Canadian Connection: An investigation of Syrian government and Hezbullah web hosting in Canada” and its follow-up, “The Canadian Connection: One Year Later”, have been mentioned in the media in relation to the recent shutting down of Internet networks by the Assad regime in Syria.

The Canadian Connection: One Year Later

This is an update to our November 2011 report titledThe Canadian Connection: An investigation of Syrian government and Hezbullah web hosting in Canada, which examined the use of web servers based in Canada, the U.S., and European countries to host Syrian government websites and websites of the Lebanese political party Hezbullah. Our findings indicate that, while many of the websites we examined in 2011 have changed hosting providers, a number of Syrian government and Hezbullah websites still maintain an online presence through the services of North American and European web hosts.
