Bill C-11 house debate day 3

On November 14, 2011 we had the third time when the House of Commons debated Bill C-11 (at Second Reading).

The most notable aspect of the debate for me is how the Conservatives are going out of their way to conflate the WIPO Paracopyright provisions (tied to infringing purposes, no restriction on circumvention tools, etc) and the non-WIPO (beyond-WIPO) Paracopyright provisions.

MPs Not Running In Next Election: 25

According to the Hill Times, the following current MPs will not be running in next election. There are 7 vacancies expected by end of summer, with 5 after byelection. Many believe that narrow partisan reasons were used to not call the remaining 5 byelections to happen at the same time.

Belinda Stronach and others not seeking re-election

A Toronto Star article by Laura Bobak indicates that Belinda Stronach is returning to Magna.

Stronach is leaving federal politics to return to the equally turbulent auto sector before the next federal election, which observers speculate could come as early as this spring.

Add to this the 17 MPs previously announced as not running, as well as the following additional 4 MPs announced in this week's Hill Times.
