Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, was the focus of attention for the debate at report stage of Bill C-11. In her speech introducing amendments she spoke about why she introduced 18 amendments to the act. It was also voting on each of these amendments that was taking the time yesterday during votes, and it was she that eventually "released the hostages" by allowing previous votes to apply to later motions.
Unlike other MPs and other parties, her amendments more closely reflected what Canadians said in consultations. While there were other issues up for debate, such as educational copyright, the bulk of submissions and participation in the consultations were opposition to legal protection for "technological measures". Given this, while she also addressed educational copyright, the bulk of her amendments addressed various aspects of technological measures.
