La Pointe-de-l'Île

Fair Copyright Montreal

The Montreal group has a great WIKI set up at FairCopyrightMontreal.org. This is an exciting trend to see, as it will allow people in the area to better coordinate with their neighbours to talk to their neighbours and their own elected representatives.

Montreal area MPs

The Saturday conversation in Montreal was great. Many of the participants seemed interested in working together to help to educate the public and members of parliament on copyright and related issues. We created a Montreal-specific mailing list to continue discussions.

Montreal is an important area as you have both the Heritage Minister and the Prime Minister there, members of Heritage committee, and the leader of the Bloc.

One thing that would be very helpful is if people in the area could go to the information page for their riding and post something about the local MP. This may help encourage others in the area to get involved as well.
