Canadian Election And Digital Policy

After the election, many Canadians had to realize that they have a Conservative majority government now. One of the questions that worry the public is how the digital policies will shape up since today.

Those who remember history will notice that Bill C-60 was developed during the Liberal government, while Bill C-61 and Bill C-32 were designed during the Conservative governments. All of those legislations dealt with copyright, and all featured US-style reforms. Finally, all of them died on the order paper due to the fact that each government was under a minority government situation.

However, now it is a majority government (that is there are more Conservatives than all others combined), and that’s why the Canadians will not have their say on issues until the next election. Thus, the one thing protecting the people from bad online policy is gone. Now there are plenty of people worrying for the future of the country in an online world.

Among the things that may possibly happen in the next 4 years, there are a removal of funding from opposition parties and the Canadian DMCA. As for the first one, it will directly affect the Pirate Party of Canada. When the latter managed to join the political process in the country, it was seen as a great achievement for people worrying about online issues. Indeed, if any political party clearly understood copyright issues, it would be the Pirate Party. However, now the Conservatives are planning to end public subsidies to political parties. This means that the smaller parties (including the Pirate Party) will be considerably harmed, because thus far they receive $2 for every vote. In other words, this decision will Americanize the political system in the country, so that only political parties having the backing of multinational corporations will be heard.

As for the so-called “Canadian DMCA”, the story goes back in the past. Bill C-61 was the first attempts of the Conservatives to implement something like DMCA in the country. They later tried a bit more moderate approach with Bill C-32, but the chances are that they will choose to turn to the worse of those legislations.

In short words, online community looking forward to freedom of speech would want better lawmaking in these areas, but the opinion of the community may simply be ignored on these vital issues. There’s still a hope that it won’t happen like that, but the observers don’t count on a positive outlook in the nearest future.

No avatarI Think you have both missed the point of this article. The flag itself , i believe is symbolic of a shift that has occurred in Canada towards a more Americanized political ideology.

xxtoolxx avatarI agree with KroniklyCanadian. It fits with what I got out the article.
"All of those legislations dealt with copyright, and all featured US-style reforms" & "In other words, this decision will Americanize the political system in the country, so that only political parties having the backing of multinational corporations will be heard." as examples.

I can empathize with the offence taken though, that image is vile. Without context (eg. t-shirt, bumpersticker, etc), it's expression would have to be from a Canadian commenting on some dark irony for me to respect the message.
