Member of Parliament for York South-Weston / York-Sud - Weston (Via Parl.gc.ca)
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.
We now have a transcript of the 2'nd day of debates in the house of C-32 (See day 1), with speeches by Liberal Heritage critic Pablo Rodriguez (Honoré-Mercier), and NDP member Glen Thibeault (Sudbury), and additional interventions by Liberal Alan Tonks (York South--Weston) and NDP Jim Maloway (Elmwood--Transcona).
The extension of the private copying levy to devices was added to question period by the Conservatives, and was part of an exchange between Mrs. Carole Lavallée (Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert, BQ) and Mr. Dean Del Mastro (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage, CPC) that was part of Adjournment Proceedings.
See: Is the private copying levy a tax? for why I feel both the Conservatives and the opposition parties are dangerously misunderstanding copyright when discussing this topic.
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.
Addition: Hijal De Sarkar (NDP, Ottawa South)
