[....] III) History of the CCP

“The Trudeau government launched the Court Challenges Program in 1978. It was designed to let language groups ratchet up pressure on the provinces to provide more bilingual services using the language guarantees in the British North America Act and, later, the Charter of Rights. In 1985, the Mulroney government extended the CCP to fund “equality seeking groups,” namely feminist, multicultural, gay, lesbian, and other groups…. The CCP has encouraged some groups to by-pass the political process by using the courts instead.

Re: Sheila Copps

This is a crazy session! 1) she is all about the “content is king” model as opposed to the idea that communication is king. 2) She said (and later defended) the idea that free content is not very good. That the only creators that matter are people that are selling content (but that fits in with her political work -she helped put the tax on blank cd’s). 3) That government won’t respond to “the public interest” but only to interest groups. So that if Cracin wants to get stuff done they should figure out which interest groups are going to be effective allies. And that traditional enemies (like copyright groups) are not possible allies because of the changes in content and telecom realities.

*great* session. I’m really glad that they invited her and that she came. I completely disagree with her about the internet (she seems to see it as a distribution network, not as a communication network) but I love her realistic advice to this group.
