2011 election Judicial Recounts

It is interesting to watch the Judicial Recounts on some of the very close ridings.

Preliminary results predicted the re-election of Bernard Généreux (Conservative) in Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup, but the final results are bringing François Lapointe (NDP) into the house.

There are 3 other recounts in process.

New MPs and outgoing MPs

The list of newly elected MPs have been loaded into a database, and available via the MP pages and the Election 2011 candidates tool. Check out the list of 108 rookie MPs.

It was even more incredible to see lobbyists for the Canadian Real Estate Association draft a series of questions about the bill, hand them to a Bloc MP, and have them posed to the witnesses moments later.

Consider writing to your MP or the members of the Industry Committee today asking them to support C-27 with an opt-in approach.


I recommend writing to your MP, asking them to forward the letter to committee members. This may increase the impact.

Anthony Rota's view on Bill C-61

Here is the letter I got from my MP Anthony Rota in my hometown riding of Nippising-Timiskaming, in response to a message I sent him about Bill C-61.

Kyle,

Thank you for your correspondence regarding Bill C-61. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments.

In your email, you voice opposition to changes and criminalization of various actions that the bill will bring forth.

My Liberal colleagues and I understand your concerns and we believe that the bill must strike the right balance between consumers and creators.
