  It is VERY on-topic for you to go to http://BillC32.ca/5306 , sign
up for an account (Drupal 6 site with OpenID stuff enabled), and post
comments.  Include the fact you live in the riding (if you do).

  I will be doing everything I can to highlight techie constituents
that have said something on this topic.

Curious if people would agree with these tweets from Matthew Skala


  "@russellmcormond @peterbraid owes his incumbency to vote split by
MacLellan of Greens - who courted #Waterloo geek vote by opposing #C32

   #Waterloo constituents are technologists, know that copyright
"reform" = selling out Canada to US big business, and will vote
against it"

  If you have more than 140 characters worth of a reply, please do so
on the BillC32.ca BLOG. Political ideas from techies are on-topic on
that BLOG, even if it is off-topic for technology law issues (IE: the
"Coalition" or "vote splitting" can of worms :-)
