Followup letter to Honourable MP Bill Siksay (NDP) of Burnaby-Douglas

This letter was written by Oscar C. Lee:

Dear Honourable Bill Siksay, Member of Parliament,

Thank you for your kind reply to my last letter. I am very happy to know that the New Democrats will continue to defend Canada’s public domain and to prevent it from being further privatized.

I am writing today to inform you that there will be a special “Breakfast on the Hill” seminar from 7:45am to 9:00am on Thursday, October 27 at the Parliamentary Restaurant, 6th Floor, Centre Block. The speaker is professor Ian Kerr, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Ethics, Law and Technology at the University of Ottawa. The title of the seminar is "What happens when law protects the technologies that protect copyright?" Full details of the event are available at: http://www.digital-copyright.ca/node/1125.

Letter about C-60 to constituent from Honourable MP Bill Siksay (NDP) of Burnaby-Douglas

After a few mail exchanges, Oscar C. Lee obtained the following reply from the Honourable MP Bill Siksay (NDP) of Burnaby-Douglas. Letter was dated September 30, 2005.

Dear Mr Lee,

Thank you for once again writing to me regarding the proposed changes to copyright legislation in Canada.

I want to assure you that my New Democrat colleagues and I oppose Bill C-60 as it now reads and agree with you that it requires major changes. The Liberal government must decide what it is going to do with this bill and either refer it to a legislative committee or to a joint industry-heritage committee. New Democrats believe that the bill must go through committee stage with significant amendments. I have taken the liberty of sharing your views directly with our New Democrat critic on this issue, Charlie Angus, MP.

Again, thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention.

Sincerely yours,

Bill Siksay, MP
