The Canadian government recently proposed Bill C-32, which would change how copyright works in Canada. As stated, the bill would make it illegal for Canadians to circumvent "digital locks". The affects of this change would be drastic, as many ordinary freedoms would be taken away from the public. For example, it would become illegal to watch legally-purchased DVDs with open-source software, illegal to modify video games or consoles for personal entertainment, illegal to circumvent the copy-protection on many PDFs in order to quote from a document, etc.
I strongly recommend that you read over the proposed bill and make an informed decision. Then you can contact your MPs and local newspapers to request change where it is due. Please read: [*] http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/crp-prda.nsf/eng/home [*] http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/5097/125/
Furthermore, the CSC is hosting a meeting/party this Saturday to discuss the bill, and write letters to MPs and the media. Please join us: Saturday, June 12th 18:30 - 21:00 PM MC 2017
I hope that you will get involved in this important matter.
