While most governments have been taking steps to regulate the bitcoin industry and others declaring a completely close-minded stance against digital currencies, Canada’s Senate decided to vote against bitcoin regulation. The Canadian Senate’s Banking, Trade and Commerce (BTC) committee released its findings last Friday and asked the federal government to use a “light touch” in dealing with digital currencies.
You have several resources at your disposable to check the price of bitcoin in Canadian dollars.
