There was a skit this evening on the Rick Mercer Report
http://www.cbc.ca/mercerreport/ that involved a choir singing passages
from the hansard (Transcript of things said in the Canadian house of
Commons). One of the lines read was of MP Peter Julian saying "The
petitioners also call upon parliament to ensure that users are
recognized as interested parties and are meaningfully consulted about
any proposed changes to the copyright act"
I have to wonder -- is there someone involved with the RMR that
would consider talking to us about copyright as "preaching to the
choir"? It would be interesting to find out more. Maybe having the
petition sung to people will convince more to sign.
