The 57 Ridings that can Change Election's Outcome

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.

Michael Geist: The Copyright MPs

Michael Geist has identified a group of 27 MPs (nine percent of all MPs) who share two key attributes - they won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university. The combination is important since it is these MPs - not the very safe Jim Prentice - who will face the consequences of the Prentice bill that will harm a generation well versed in digital technologies, social networks, and the Internet.

Career Background: Since 2000 I've been running an eNews gleaning service, and review well over a hundred articles daily from valuable sources worldwide in order to determine important information that’s being under-reported or avoided by the mainstream media, so that my subscription list can glimpse what's really going on. And with thorough research into the shocking news events that are being withheld from the public I've developed some important governing solutions.

Music File-sharing: What is your position on the issue of file-sharing in Canada--should it be illegal?

;:Answer: I am of mixed mind on the issue on several fronts. I am not in favour of criminalizing more and more behaviours because I believe this is not the best means for challenging behaviours that might be unacceptable. As well, it leaves us open to what is happening in the States where one of the few growth industries is privately owned and operated prisons with increasing populations because more and more commonly occurring behaviours are being declared crimes.
