Member of Parliament for Nanaimo-Cowichan / Nanaimo - Cowichan (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.
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)
The following is a resolution that the Nanaimo Cowichan NDP riding association is bringing to the national convention. This isn't necessarily going to be NDP party policy, but like many things the journey is as important as the possible destination. Having more people debate the type of policy in this resolution is always helpful.
I strongly support the parts are those which oppose the abuse of technical measures by copyright holders to circumvent our property, privacy and other rights. I also strongly support the suggestion that we should move to a fixed term of copyright from the date of creation or publication, rather than the countdown towards works entering the public domain being from the death of the author. We need to move towards always celebrating our creative citizens, not having policy which causes people to secretly wish these people would die younger.
