(Copied to both national and Vancouver lists -- please just reply to one
if there are additional thoughts).
We don't know when the next election is -- speculation changes almost
daily. But it is worth being prepared, and it doesn't hurt to have more
people within politics being informed on these issues. The suggestion is
to contact the nominated candidates as well as the incumbent MP.
I would like to suggest this for other ridings as well. For
Vancouver Center I have some notes about NDP candidate Michael Byers who
I interviewed on copyright.
Via his own blog:
Digital Copyright: Why Bill C-61 is a threat to democracy
I would love to hear what other candidates are thinking, and whether
there is a "fair copyright candidate" in each riding across the country.
