Anti Spam legislation

Spam is a problem. Our government has acted to help reduce CEM's Commercial Electronic Messages by introducing the legislation. Good. So how did they miss the telephone spam?  I received two calls last week, one was for a poll for Canada Post, another was for The Canadian Police Association. I declined on both, but then it struck me , if these calls were for real, how is it I have to get permission to "stay Connected" and it appears that governmrnt agencies do not. Maybe the calls were from some bogus front, but maybe not.
