Conservatives plan to push draconian copyright law at behest of their American and EU overlords

You know what, I know Federal politics and Provincial politics aren't one and the same, but this bullshit is one of the reasons why I didn't vote for the Conservatives in the last election, and now I won't vote for them provincially either. Sorry Hugh, you're guilty by association. Any government that tries to pass this off as anything but corporate welfare for media cartels is a fool. Liberals, Conservatives, anyone who votes for them, convince me why you're not all idiots right now.

There was an opportunity to do this right, there was an opportunity to listen to the citizens of this country. But the Conservatives clearly work for a small segment of society. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.

Yes I'm mad. If you think this is just about downloading music you're an idiot. If you think this is about rewarding musicians and performers, you're an idiot. This is about controlling free speech, about shutting down the internet as we know it. And it's a blatant and ignorant sellout of Canada.

This is why it sucks to be Canadian. The rest of the world is pointing a & laughing at us. How humiliating.
