Riding of Julie Federman, grade 10 student at the Etobicoke School of the Arts

The riding of St. Paul's is where Julie Federman lives. It may seem unusual for me to be blogging about a single person, but this person is responsible for over a quarter of the signatures received so far for our Petition for Users' Rights. Julie was also able to get a response from her MP, Hon. Carolyn Bennett, indicating that she would be willing to present these petitions to parliament.

Julie attended the Sound Bytes/Sound Rights conference and introduced herself to many influential people in this area of policy, including Sarmite Bulte, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Heritage.

Letters Julie wrote to our forum on December 18 and January 16 puts her story in her own words.
