Copyright Bill C-60 timing

I have been on a course for the last 3 days, hence the lack of blog entries. Presenters included a representative of Heritage Canada, which has partial responsibility for the copyright bill.

The controversial bill is expected to pass 2nd reading in late September, followed by hearings in October by a special legislative committee that will be struck solely for that purpose.

The government hopes the bill will get through the house and be on its way to the senate by the end of the year. That may be a bit optimistic. And if an election is called before that, the bill will have to be re-introduced by the new government.
