Thunder Bay--Rainy River
So that constituents can find quickly what their past MP may have said at a C-32 committee, I've created the following table of meetings and which members of the committee were present at that meeting. The minutes and transcripts from the meeting are on the parliamentary website.
Of the 12 members of the C-32 committee, only one of them was from the NDP (based on the percentage of NDP seats in the house). While Mr. John Rafferty (Thunder Bay—Rainy River, NDP) stood in for Mr. Charlie Angus (Timmins—James Bay, NDP) for part of one of the days, it was otherwise Mr. Angus at all meetings. He is the Heritage, Culture, and digital issues critic for the NDP.
The list of candidates supporting the Copyright Pledge has been updated on Monday the 6'th.
If your candidates aren't on this list, then ask them if they would take the pledge.

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.
Hill Times journalists Abbas Rana, Simon Doyle and Harris MacLeod have assembled a list of 57 ridings in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec, where the parties won or lost by a margin of about five per cent or less in the last federal election. This is a superset of what Michael Geist called the Copyright MPs which won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university.
Hi Mr. McOrmond,
To be perfectly honest, I am really busy with being a teacher and attending debates. When I read your email, there are a lot of issues there and being not as technology savvy as others, I will just defer to our Green Party's response.
Thank you for your inquiry,
