There were submissions to the 2001 consultation that included references
to the Charter.
If anyone has the time to look at the 700 submissions and highlight those
from our community it would be great. I had a few of them on
http://www.digital-copyright.ca/links.shtml , but not all of them.
I remember in 2001 that someone had an engine that would detect which
submissions were as a result from the EFF form letter, and that may be
useful to flag which ones were not so that a summary could be done.
It seems that the new Minister needs to be reminded of the existing
consultation process and reminded that by far a vast majority of
submissions were opposed to the reforms she supports (including WIPO
treaties legal protection for TPM/RMI/DRM/etc.)
