Bill "C-32" Redux?

If the bill unexpectedly expected for today June 2, 2010 turns out to be numbered "Bill C-32", that could be a bad omen.

Bill C-32 was the last major update to Canada's Copyright Act. It became law in 1997 - the last "act"of the the then Liberal government before an arguably unnecessary election. Literally, the last thing done before they turned out the lights before that election....

That bill was a bad bill going in that was made a lot worse after it got through a very unsatisfactory committee process that was crammed through the House and Senate in only a year.

Are those who don't know history once more condemned to repeat it...????
