Fair Copyright Montreal

The Montreal group has a great WIKI set up at 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.

House adjourns until Jan. 29 -- Montreal area MPs shuffle

As expected, the house adjourned until Monday, January 29, 2007. This does not mean that MPs are on a long vacation, but that they are now in the ridings. This in fact is an appropriate time to be trying to contact your member of parliament at their riding office to let them know about your concerns on copyright.

There is also an interesting article in the Globe and Mail by Jane Taber talking about a few Liberal MPs from the Montreal area don't plan on running in the next election. These include Outremont MP Jean Lapierre, Mount Royal MP Irwin Cotler, and past Liberal leader and LaSalle-Émard MP Paul Martin.

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.
