On November 24, 2011 we had the fifth time when the House of Commons debated Bill C-11 (at Second Reading).
The debate ended with the speaker asking if the house is ready to vote on the amendment. This vote was deferred until Monday at the end of government orders.
I believe the amendment is the one brought by Hon. Geoff Regan (Halifax West, Lib.) on the first day of debate which read:
Given the Conservatives have a majority this amendment will fail the vote, but it is interesting to see what the focus from the Liberals have been.
For those that do not know, there are 2 districts under judicial recount (Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup with 5 votes different between NDP and Conservative, Etobicoke Centre with 25 votes between Conservative and Liberal) and a third where there is the possibility (Nipissing--Timiskaming with 14 votes between Conservative and Liberal).
A Hill Times article by Simon Doyle, Abbas Rana and Bea Vongdouanchanh documents the 40 Conservative targeted ridings. The in-paper version included a table of the ridings, and I've linked this article with the 40 ridings so people will know if they are one of them.
Please try to talk to all Candidates about copyright, but especially talk to the Conservatives in these ridings. It would be great if during this election that the Conservatives could find their "Charlie Angus" -- someone who can switch the party from being anti-technology/modernization to being an advocate.
Michael Geist has identified a group of 27 MPs (nine percent of all MPs) who share two key attributes - they won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university. The combination is important since it is these MPs - not the very safe Jim Prentice - who will face the consequences of the Prentice bill that will harm a generation well versed in digital technologies, social networks, and the Internet.
