Elections Canada has announced 3 by-elections.
CBC reports that there is a parliamentary caucus that focuses on the arts. The only MP of the "about 40 MPs and senators from all four parties have expressed interest in joining the new group" mentioned is Paul Dewar (Ottawa Center). Anyone have a list of other members?
I think this is good news. MPs focusing on the "Arts" and hopefully a full spectrum of ideas on how to help artists is far better than an IP and Anti-Counterfeiting Caucus which falsely presumes a solution without having a clue about the question.
Update: An email from Paul Dewar indicates that Denise Savoie (Victoria) is the new chair.
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)
