Braid runs the script from Ottawa.  I can understand if the Tories have 
an open market capitalism policy.
But I think that Braid and the local conservative politicians  should 
have fought for  RIM to get first crack at the Nortel Patents.

I have put a call in and asked to talk to Braid or someone who can speak 
for Braid on C-32 and other issues.  They claimed that
someone would phone.
