Vegreville - Wainwright

Thoughts on C-32 committee members from the Conservative Party of Canada.

Of the 12 members of the C-32 committee, six of them were from the Conservative party of Canada. This included chair Gordon Brown (Leeds—Grenville, ON). Three members were there for almost all meetings: Mike Lake (Edmonton—Mill Woods—Beaumont, AB), Dean Del Mastro (Peterborough, ON), and Peter Braid (Kitchener—Waterloo, ON). While the other members included Sylvie Boucher ( Beauport—Limoilou, QC) and Kelly Block (Saskatoon—Rosetown—Biggar, Sask) when the committee was formed, they were substituted with other Conservative members including Ed Fast (Abbotsford, BC) who became very active, Hon. Maxime Bernier (Beauce, QC) who became acting chair at one point, as well as Brent Rathgeber (Edmonton—St. Albert, AB), Daryl Kramp (Prince Edward—Hastings, ON), Hon. Michael D. Chong (Wellington—Halton Hills, ON), Leon Benoit (Vegreville—Wainwright, AB), Mike Wallace (Burlington, ON) and Paul Calandra (Oak Ridges—Markham, ON).

Received from Jim Kenney:

Music File-sharing:

;: I really don't know: many new and small music groups are discovering that file-sharing is expanding the sale of their music around the world. Established artists seem to be losers with file-sharing. Considering that copyright for music did not exist 105 years ago and that musicians did well before, it has become a very complicate ethical, social and practical issue, and I don't believe I know enough, even after hearing many hours of discussion, what is best.

Technological Protection of Copyrighted Materials:

;:I don't know enough at this time to exercise judgement, though my gut instinct would be to prohibit circumvention, with some reservations.
