What to know about the rules for operating an Internet cafe:Operators of Internet cafes must comply with the same rules as a cafe, such as not posting material that could interfere with the operation of a computer, the rules say.
Operators also must maintain reasonable security measures, including securing computers from unauthorized access, maintaining an electronic log of visitors, and making sure that the equipment on their premises is up to date.
All operators are also required to follow the strict rules of safety, which includes using hand sanitizers and wearing face coverings, which are required on all machines in the cafe.
But while the operators are required to do all of these things, the cafe can be anything they like.CBC News asked all of the Internet cafe operators whether they would take action to ensure that their cafe is safe.
The operator of a cafe in Saskatoon, Alberta, says it would take a “very strong” response from the city if it did not agree to remove the cafe from the list.
The owner of an Internet café in B.C., Canada, says the city should not be able to dictate what is and isn’t safe.
We’re not trying to dictate to other cities what they can or can’t do, said David Ahern, owner of the Web cafe in Prince George, B.A.
