After a few mail exchanges, Oscar C. Lee obtained the following reply from the Honourable MP Bill Siksay (NDP) of Burnaby-Douglas. Letter was dated September 30, 2005.
Dear Mr Lee,
Thank you for once again writing to me regarding the proposed changes to copyright legislation in Canada.
I want to assure you that my New Democrat colleagues and I oppose Bill C-60 as it now reads and agree with you that it requires major changes. The Liberal government must decide what it is going to do with this bill and either refer it to a legislative committee or to a joint industry-heritage committee. New Democrats believe that the bill must go through committee stage with significant amendments. I have taken the liberty of sharing your views directly with our New Democrat critic on this issue, Charlie Angus, MP.
Again, thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention.
Bill Siksay, MP
