Everytime it gets shot down is one more reason not to try and re-introduce it. Imagine the person trying to sneak it in after unsuccessfully doing so for a dozen tries. It would be laughable.

I don't know how much industry lobby is here. I think the lobby had it's impact with the US and the crafting of the WIPO treaty. I imagine the lobby with Canada is resistable. At least I hope everyone on this list will tell their MP that.
