Greenland’s national Internet provider has filed suit against the Canadian government to find out the identity of the shipping trawler it says was responsible for damaging its undersea cables. Tele Greenland wants the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which monitors the locations of fishing trawlers, to reveal which ships were in the area off the coast of Newfoundland on May 3, 2013 when a major telecommunications cable was damaged, according to the March 7 court filing. The same cable was damaged a few weeks later on May 25, 2013, in the same area as the first incident and again by fishing equipment, Tele Greenland claimed in the court filing. The Internet provider filed an access to information request but DFO provided names, not locations, of the various fishing trawlers in the area, alleging that location data was “commercially sensitive information,” according to the filing. “ is not a competition of the companies fishing in the vicinity of its cable,” the company said in the court filing. “The Applicant is, however, a telecommunications provider, and the integrity of its cable, and the communications it provides, are critical to its own, and its customers’, interests.” The undersea cable provides phone and broadband Internet services to Greenland, connecting the island with Newfoundland and Iceland. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans said in an email response that it is aware of the case but can't comment on matters that are before the courts.
