Canadian Action Party To Run Candidates as Liberals and Conservatives in Next Election

CAP takes Lesson from Emerson Strategy

15 February 2006
for immediate release

The Canadian Action Party may have been far from electing an MP in the last election, but a new strategy should ensure a breakthrough next time.

The Party, which up to now has been frustrated in its efforts to become mainstream, intends to use to its advantage a recently-invoked quirk in the electoral system.

As part of its new strategy, the Canadian Action Party will get its candidates to run as Liberals or Conservatives in the next election. They will, unlike in the past, be well financed and organized, and have an army of volunteer workers.

I would be lying to say that I understand this issue even remotely enough to answer your questions. In the broader sense I can say that I support protection of Canadian content in the interests of agreements with other countries, ie: Canadian producers or creators should have the protection of there work entrenched in law. As the representative for Calgary Centre, I would be more than willing to raise a voice to these specific concerns on behalf of our Canadian Cultural Property. It's only a token, but I hope this helps.

Additional note:

Ok, I did some research and I understand the issues a little bit more. Given my limited knowledge thus far I'd have to say that I wouldn't be able to support bill C-60. I make no promises, because it is illegal for me to do so under the Canada Elections Act (s550), but it sounds like bunk special interest pandering to me.

Dear Mr. McOrmond

I have looked at this issue previously, and it seems to be very complicated matter, or perhaps it is just being presented that way, as many issues are today. I am a writer, and I have concerns about copyright law also. When I post something on the internet, I expect that people will copy and paste elsewhere, or circulate to others. For me that is a compliment and it serves the purpose of having people read what I write. On the other hand if they are selling my work, that is indeed a different issue. Canadian Action Party supports the arts, we support and expect people to be paid for their work. We also believe the people who are affected are the ones who should be consulted on these issues.

Connie Fogal, Leader of the Canadian Action Party, supports accountability on copyright

In response to my letter, Ms. Fogal had taken the pledge. She then wished to change the wording to the following:

I support the principle that No Member of Parliament who has accepted financial contributions or other benefits from (i) a copyright lobby group, (ii) its corporate members, or (iii) senior executives as well as (iv) a copyright collective shall serve as Minister of Canadian Heritage or as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage, nor sit on any legislative committee (parliamentary or standing committees) conducting hearings or deliberations on copyright matters and urge Parliament to pass legislation to effect this principle.

Stop the erosion of Canadian sovereignty.

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.
