How Canadians Reclaimed the Public Interest on Digital Policy

Michael Geist, Weblog, Nov 06, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm inclined to agree with Michael Geist on this one, and it's reasonable to give credit where it is deserved: "the shift toward the public interest in the development of Canadian digital policies ranks as one of the most remarkable policy transformations of the current Conservative government. The change is not absolute - Canada caved to U.S. pressure on several copyright issues, delayed implementation of the anti-spam bill due to corporate lobbying, and is negotiating new trade treaties that could undo much of the recent progress - but the state of Canadian digital policy is far better than anyone could have reasonably anticipated several years ago."
