Dear Mr. McOrmond,
I think discussions about Bill C-60 are important, and I'm surprised questions surrounding this bill haven't been raised in more interviews and discussions I've had with students. I think this could potentially be an area where younger candidates might be able to provide more insight than our older counterparts.
If I were in Ms. Bulte's current position, I would either cancel my fundraiser and refuse donations from (what is essentially) a pro-copywrite lobby group, or decline the position of Heritage Minister if offered. Especially in the midst of an already scandal-plagued Liberal campaign, these just seem to be the obvious courses of action for Ms. Bulte. As NDP candidate Peggy Nash pointed out in their Parkdale all-candidate meeting, "If this was the big banks doing this for the finance minister, people would question that."
