  The petitions are the ones at http://BillC32.ca/petition/ and
http://BillC32.ca/petition/ict/

  Some of the KWLug folks may remember them from the past, as I've
been collecting signatures for a while now.  These are physical paper
petitions that get tabled in parliament and follow all those
processes.

  I'm also wondering if there are ongoing talks with your MPs?  Peter
Braid (Kitchener—Waterloo) is one of the constant members on the C-32
committee.  Some of the other Conservative members have changed from
when the committee was formed.  (Ed Fast and Maxime Bernier being new
replacements).

  My own focus is always on TPMs, and thus the issues brought up in
the IT property rights petition.  The rest of copyright is of course
interesting, but won't harm us as much as non-owner "digital locks".
